"These breakfast meetings are a really important opportunity for companies to share their best-practices on innovation, because the process is not a science and results depend on the individual organization. Every innovation manager who came today can really take benefit from understanding what other companies did to achieve success. It was a great event”

Francois Montegut
Innovation Manager, Amadeus

“It was very interesting to meet other innovation managers and to share with them and be inspired by each other’s insights.”

 Ronan Minvielle
Innovation Manager, RTE

"The event today was just fantastic, it was great for me as a speaker but also as an attendee. It was just really good to see innovation leaders come together, as there is always a unique chemistry when different innovators come together to discuss challenges, so for me this was a really invigorating and thrilling event."
