Future Focus

Future Focus combines inspiration, cutting-edge thinking and practical resources. It’s been created – in partnership with the University of Exeter for Cornwall and IOS business leaders who want to accelerate growth, reduce risk and create change.

We offer a three-part programme combined with our collaborative networks and access to research which will ensure you can break boundaries, innovate and prosper:

  • Events – Superstar keynote speakers sharing their fascinating experience and knowledge.
  • Labs – Industry experts working with you and other leaders in a supportive peer group.
  • Resources – During Labs you’ll develop an action plan. We’ve got a host of high-value resources (including subsidies and funding) as well as access to experts to help you deliver it.

As part of the Future Focus Programme we run a number of expert lead- peer to peer workshops to help businesses innovate and grow. Focussing on the challenges you want to overcome and opportunities you want to seize, you’ll leave with a really clear direction and an action plan.

These can focus on anything from tools to help cultivate company culture, leadership techniques and leading teams to brand and marketing and more.
