Intellectual Property - full day workshop for business advisers

26th March, 2019   9:15am to 4:00pm

University Centre Shrewsbury, Shrewsbury

Having the right type of intellectual property protection helps businesses to stop people stealing or copying the names of their products or brands, their inventions, the design or look of their products and the things they write, make or produce.

A company’s IP is often their most important asset and if used well, IP can offer a solid platform for any business to grow.

So how businesses plan, manage and protect their ideas should be a crucial feature in their business planning and yet IP is often not considered and under-protected!

This workshop aims to give participants a good overview of IP (patents, trade marks, designs and copyright) and how to apply this information to their client’s business.

The audience is broken up into small teams and presented with a series of scenarios in which IP is crucial to a business. Once the teams have discussed the scenarios, the Intellectual Property speaker will take them through the answers to the problem.


10.00am – 1.00pm Everyone owns IP, what do you own? (will include a 15 min break)

 In this workshop we will look at what Intellectual Property is. We will cover:

  • Trade marks, designs, copyright and patents and the differences between each of the rights, including application costs. 
  • The importance of protecting your IP and how to enforce and respect IP. 
  • How to enforce and protect unregistered rights with the use of NDA’s and confidentiality agreements. 
  • What to do next and where to get the right information and support.
