ideasUK 34th International Conference: Wednesday 10th & Thursday 11th November 2021. Tewkesbury Park Hotel. For over 30 years ideasUK has brought innovation and idea management specialists together to reinvigorate and share their knowledge, each learning and collaborating across corporate boundaries and cultures to gain new and different insights. This year, due to the unprecedented circumstances we are all facing, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our physical conference this year and our 34th International Conference will now take place, hopefully bigger and better than ever on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th November 2021 We are delighted to say that our 2020 Idea of the Year competition will still be going ahead and we will still be announcing the winners on Thursday 12th November 2020.

How does your innovation programme compare to the best of the best? The ideasUK Accreditation is a way for organisations to give both internal and external prominence to their workplace innovation programme.  In essence this is an audit, with questions that have been refined over a number of years and now fully mapped to the Innovation Guideline BS ISO 56002 to provide you with a blue print for your programme and support you to add greater value to your organisation in the future.

For over 30 years, ideasUK has honoured the best ideas from the public and private sectors, both home and abroad. Over that time, through our Idea of the Year competition, we have shown time after time how innovation in the workplace can bring wide benefits to employees, customers and organisations. The Idea of the Year competition provides a great opportunity to recognise the employees who submitted those incredible ideas; raise the profile of the programme to senior management through external recognition and gives international exposure of your success. To learn more about the different categories for submission, read the latest competition blog and ask any questions related to the competition please get in touch.

We understand that whilst highly rewarding, it can be quite daunting to run an ideas programme. So whether bringing innovation capability into your organisation, revamping an existing programme or just looking for some fresh inspiration, ideasUK is here to support you achieve your goals. We have a big range of personalised consultancy offerings, always tailored to your needs, covering everything from ideas to implementation and getting the support of senior leaders to developing your communication strategy and plan. All sessions are workshop based, providing some theory but ensuring you and members of your organisation are furthering your skills and are actively engaged in developing and shaping the future of your programme. Some examples of sessions are highlighted below and if you are interested in one of these sessions or would like to explore what else we could offer, please get in touch by emailing: .
