Our headline event will be: Inspiring Entrepreneurs – Fashionably Enterprising.

Inspiring Entrepreneurs Fashionably enterprising

Wednesday 16 November from 18:00 at Brewin Dolphin Join us for an evening with Chrissie Rucker, founder of The White Company, and Nick Wheeler, creator of Charles Trywhitt. They are the headline speakers at the British Library’s latest event in their Inspiring Entrepreneurs series. We will be joining a live interactive screening from the British Library, to get the inside scoop on how to grow your business directly from the ‘Mr and Mrs’ behind two of the UK’s most successful companies. You will also have the chance to put questions to the husband and wife duo answered live from the British Library.

Prior to this, we will have our own local Fashionably Enterprising event, featuring a fantastic local speaker – Ross McPhie. Ross has worked for a number of top fashion brands before forming McPhie Design, a brand, social media, marketing and design consultancy based in the North East.  This event is a must for anyone thinking of starting up or currently running an business in fashion and textiles but it will also provide a fascinating insight into how to succeed in business no matter what sector you are involved in. Fashionably Enterprising is organised by the Business & IP Centre Newcastle and hosted by Brewin Dolphin. There will be refreshments and networking opportunities before and after the event.

Protect what you create

Monday 14 November, 17:30-18:45

Did you know that one of the most valuable assets in a company can be its intellectual property?

Intellectual property is about recognising there is value within what you create. Whether it is an invention, a brand name, a logo, a brochure, a design, a song or a website, it could be protected by one or several forms of intellectual property rights. For Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016, come and make sure you know what you own and exploit it properly! In this session we will explain about the different types of intellectual property protection:

  • Patents
  • Trade marks
  • Designs
  • Copyright

Suitable for new and established businesses as well as individuals with an idea.
