Creating Value in your Creative Business: How to keep your intellectual property safe and build value in your business.

Hosted by Business Wales, Carbon Law Partners and Creative Cardiff.

Creative businesses sell imagination. They sell dreams. They sell talent. They sell ideas.

How can creative companies protect themselves? And not just protect their intellectual property but also keep their client lists and valuable confidential information safe. What are the risks and opportunities that a young company should be aware of and how can you make the most of what you have?

This workshop will show you how to:

  • Take advantage of immediate opportunities to protect your business assets
  • Find out what help is available to you
  • Create and develop longer term, sustainable, business value through an IP strategy
  • Improve your capability to defend your intellectual property and the information and relationships you need to succeed

What will it involve?

By improving the focus of your business on the present and the future, we can help you develop your ability to analyse what assets you have that can be protected, manage them effectively to build value in your business and defend your profitability. There is a series of simple, practical steps you can take to enhance your chances of success.

This workshop aims to:

  • Walk you through clear, checklist based processes designed to maximise outcomes
  • Share group experience and best practice
  • Provide practical, pragmatic solutions for dealing with issues commonly raised by businesses like yours
  • Facilitate fun, thought provoking activities that demonstrate how to put legal theory into practice

The event is hosted by experienced lawyers with a track record of helping SME businesses. They know what issues you are likely to face, how to deal with them and they understand how difficult it can be to juggle conflicting demands in a small business.

You will get take away hand-outs that build up a complete “plug and play” pack for your business and access to online resources after the session.
