Around the World with LES

 

Around the World with LES

Intellectual property, licensing and business development professionals will gather around the world to celebrate World IP Day and the importance of IP to the global economy.  Participating LES (USA & Canada) Chapters and LESI societies will host events celebrating World IP Day on April 26, 2012.

Inland Northwest Chapter

DATE & TIME
Thursday, April 26, 2012
4:00 PM – 7:00 PM

TITLE
Careers that Change the World and Networking Event

DESCRIPTION
The Inland Northwest Chapter celebrates World IP Day with a unique opportunity to engage with leading licensing professionals discussing what they do, how they got there and what it takes to invigorate your career in today’s rapidly growing Innovation Economy.  This promises to be a dynamic, open and discursive event, with a question and answer session following the discussion. 

A networking event at Lee & Hayes with food and drinks will follow the panel conversation at Gonzaga University School of Law.  We are hoping for a good turn out from students, job-seekers and active professionals at both events to provide many opportunities to meet and discuss careers in IP.
