Have you considered what the new normal will look like? How you can make your business more robust? or How you can use data to make better decisions?

In a world post Covid-19 and Brexit, an effective management capability, that can transform business performance, has never been more important.

The University of Surrey are holding a free online event to provide an introduction to Management Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (mKTP). People-focused and designed to trigger culture change, mKTPs enable transformational improvement by identifying strategic, management-based initiatives that increase business resilience and agility and expand management effectiveness.

Innovate UK contribute up to 67% of the total project cost of a mKTP, which typically lasts around 24-months.

Speakers will include:

Dr Terry Corner, Knowledge Transfer Network, KT Advisor

Professor James Aitken, Head of Department for Business Transformation, Surrey Business School

Jenny Ritchie, Senior Business Manager, University of Surrey

Dr Elham Ketabchi, KTP Associate with Vistafolia

Paul Alder, Managing Director of Surrey based Vistafolia Ltd, an SME hosting a 2-Associate KTP

Chris Pett, Innovation & Scaleup Operations Advisor, SETsquared Partnership


KTPs are an established way for a UK business to bring in new talent and the latest academic thinking to deliver a specific, strategic innovation project to improve their competitiveness and productivity. To find out more about Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) visit our dedicated webpages.
