Innovation Events & Activities Around the Globe

All good things must come to an end

Dear Friends and Followers of the Innovation Leadership Forum, all good things must come to an end, and it is time to say goodbye to the ILF Events page. While we enjoyed sharing innovation- and sustainability-relevant events with our community, there are now so many more places you can find out about such events that we feel we no longer need to provide this service. The page will be switched off, effect 1st July 2024.

We are really excited about this one:

If you have been following ILF activities you will have noticed that sustainability, responsibility and regeneration are at the forefront of our attention, thus it is our particular pleasure to help promote events that focus on these topics, such as Reuters Responsible Business Europe 2024. As ever, if any of you are going, we’d love to hear your thoughts!

Courses & Programmes

Here we list regularly running Executive & Post Graduate Programmes and Courses we believe are helpful in the context of innovation. If you know any more – good ones, ones that are a little different, ones that prepare for the future rather than the past – please let us know!
