September 23, 2019 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

Do you know the difference between your trade marks and copyright, patents and designs? At the conclusion of this morning course – you will.

Intellectual property is one of the most valuable tools for your business and used properly can add considerable value.  Take a morning in Blackpool to learn exactly what intellectual property is, what you can do to protect it, and how you can get the most from it for yourself and your organisation.

Delegates Will Learn:

  • How to identify different types of intellectual property which are important for business:
    • Trade marks
    • Copyright
    • Patents
    • Designs
    • Other confidential information
  • Ways in which intellectual property can be protected
  • How organisations can properly commercialise and exploit their intellectual property for commercial gain while preventing others from doing doing the same.

This half-day course will empower you to better understand all aspects of IP and its relationship with business while developing sound practical skills that can be applied in your organisation. Learn about intellectual property from a legal expert who represents and advises businesses across Lancashire on IP and copyright issues.

This Course Is For:

Business: Owners, advisors, and coaches, entrepreneurs/inventors, product designers, accountants, and anyone responsible for managing a company IP portfolio.

This morning course precedes the afternoon course “Writing 3rd Party Contracts and Terms & Conditions” as part of a back-to-back offering. Both courses can be taken separately.

As with all of the training courses John presents for the Chamber, he will make himself available for any general questions and one-to-one conversations you may require.
