To be able to sustain and grow a business you need to be trusted by your existing and potential customers. Word of mouth is a good start, but can be slow to scale a business up. Another way is to establish a trusted brand or indicate you have been approved by a standards organisation. In some cases it is also possible to gain very prestigious awards such as The Queens Award.

Attendees of this event will benefit from the knowledge Innovation Martlesham (IM) has gained from working with over a hundred companies who are part of the IM cluster at Adastral Park, Ipswich, UK.

To anyone planning to build a public image for their company, this session will provide a good overview of the key issues that establishes confidence in potential customers and partners
