Jun 16.

In celebration of the International Year of Light the Welsh Opto-electronics Forum is partnering with the LIGHT2015 project to organize a LIGHTtalk aimed to entrepreneurs, the ‘Bright Lights and Engineering’ / ‘Golau Llachar a Pheirianneg ‘event on Tuesday 16th June in the OpTIC Centre, St Asaph, North Wales.
Collaborating in this event are also the IOP, Knowledge Transfer Network, Glyndŵr University and The Engineering and Science Group North Wales.

This event will show how light is used in engineering applications as well as showcase innovations in Wales where light is used in manufacturing. The event will draw attendees from manufacturing businesses who will gain an opportunity to enhance their appreciation of light based technologies and how they can be applied to manufacturing and hence spur entrepreneurial efforts in extant companies. The meeting will also be open to students and graduates who are attracted by opportunities within start-up companies as well as in spinning out enterprises using photonics technologies. The programme of the event will also be of interest to members of academic and professional institutions as well as the general public. This event will also showcase job prospects for graduates

Entrepreneurship is the journey of opportunity, exploration and risk management to create value for profit and/or social good. It takes a special kind of person to accomplish this. Our speakers will all have been involved in the process of developing a business plan to meet goals in a variety of areas – finance, marketing, production, sales and personnel.

Marketing skills, basic management skills, leadership skills to develop a vision for the company and to inspire employees to pursue IT and interpersonal skills are all important for the success of a business.
