Growing Ideas - SLIS Wellington Lunchtime Session With Claire Stent

This month we have Claire Stent from Statistics New Zealand to lead an interactive session - Growing Ideas.

We know we should be innovative but how do we think of new or improved services and products. If we have good ideas, how do we turn them into something we can develop and use in our library.

Come along to an interactive session which will help to build a tool set for developing and growing ideas.

Claire Stent
Claire Stent has a proven track record in innovation.
