What Inventors can learn from Marketeers

Manchester Inventors' Group
Ray Clarke's talk last Tuesday was excellent. An engineer himself, Ray contrasted the approach of an inventor keen to commercialize an invention with that of the marketeer looking for a product to fill a gap in the market. The two go together but the market need must come first. Anybody who missed that Ray in Manchester can hear him in Blackburn on 17 Nov 2005.

The Manchester Inventors plan a very special event next meeting for 6 Dec. Members will be invited to showcase their inventions to other members of the club in confidence. We hope to generate a lot of sparks from that event. Nobody will be allowed in without signing a confidentiality undertaking. A draft of this will agreement will be on the blog soon.

Finally, I have to apologize for the lack of activity on this blog over the last few days. The reason is that I have been doing jury service in Bradford and have had to use time that I would otherwise spend on this blog on paperwork. I have another week of this imposition. After 11 Nov, normal service should be resumed.
