Innovation in Britain

Innovation and Mergers & Acquisitions were the topics at University of Bradford School of Management last night.  Jens Schneider gave an insightful M&A talk based on his experience.  TL:DR version is don't - only one in three actually generate increased value.
Rob Munro of System Growth gave an equally interesting talk about the need for Growth Engines in the UK.  I don't disagree with his message but I think we were the wrong audience - academics, consultants, MBA Students and SMEs.  I hope he manages to get the same message to where it must be heard - senior management, banking and finance (I think VCs mostly get it).
