Looking forward in a crisis will be discussed at the next webinar organised by Inverness Chamber of Commerce.

Taking place on Thursday between 11am and noon it will also consider intellectual property issues and innocation.

A chamber spokesman said: "Having a sound, knowledgeable and positive approach to IP (intellectual property) can increase your chances of success and help give your business or business proposal credibility and value. Small steps can make a big difference."

The webinar is aimed at small and medium enterprises and individuals who are thinking about: what to do next; how to give a new venture or project the best chance of success using IP; how to learn enough about IP to turn it into a useful business tool rather than a barrier to entry.

The session will be led by Dr Kate Macdonald, of Capella IP, a PhD physicist and patent attorney who started her IP business in 2009 as the financial crisis was inching towards a recovery.

The spokesman said: "It was a good time because people innovate in a crisis and intellectual property protection and advice were in demand.

"The resilient, smart, determined and skilled folk of the Highlands will innovate out of this current crisis – how can we make this/ do this/ build this/ protect this/ create this? The creativity here is phenomenal and Kate wants to help."

To take part register here by noon on Wednesday and a link will be sent out after booking has closed.
