Newcastle UniversityOur client’s aim

Newcastle University worked with Flint Spark Consulting because they needed help to ignite their people by getting their priorities in order (because when people share the big picture they are motivated to make a difference).


Objective of our commission

Flint Spark Consulting was commissioned to design and facilitate the ‘Driving Innovation’ Automotive Sector Innovation Conference for over 100 delegates. The aim of the conference was to enable academics and the automotive industry to share ideas for collaborative research; encourage further dialogue between the universities and industry representatives; and provide an opportunity to share industry challenges and potential solutions.


Our chosen approach

We designed the conference format to include a series of short 3 minute presentations, group discussions and use of interactive technology to capture key lessons, questions and reactions from the audience. We also included a “Trade Show” where academics could meet and network with potential industry partners.
