On 9 and 10 May, Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) held its yearly congress in Venice. Winnotek was represented by Pierre Ollivier, Managing Partner, and André Gorius, Partner. The latter led two specific workshops, one addressing key issues for SME’s to efficiently manage and monetize their intellectual property assets, the other involving the “IP Valuation Committee” he presides.

Moreover, Pierre and André together promoted, in the framework of another workshop, the projects of the “LESI Innovation Trends”  (LIT) taskforce. This team analyzes future trends in innovation activities and detects their consequences on all licensing functions and practices. Within this taskforce, Pierre Ollivier is co-chairman of the “Business Secrets” workgroup.
