Beau talks at G8 Innovation Conference

The Innovation Conference was one of the events to be held in the run-up to the G8 Summit in Northern Ireland on 17–18 June. It brought together some 250 entrepreneurs, scientists, designers and policymakers from 22 countries, including Sir Richard Branson and architect Zaha Hadid. David Cameron also spoke to the conference.

The central theme was that an openness to ideas and technologies from across the spectrum of business and society is essential if we are to find solutions to the greatest challenges facing the world. Beau, one of the invited speakers, focussed on what he sees as the biggest challenges to innovation and suggesting that the next biggest innovation will not be technical but mental.
