Meeting Home Program Speakers Summary Report

Facilitating Peer-to-Peer Discussion & Networking
The Licensing Executives Society (U.S.A. & Canada) hosted a groundbreaking event that, for the first time, assembled Intellectual Property thought leaders from leading companies and universities to focus on strategic issues related to IP business.

The LES (USA & Canada) IP100 Executive Forum ("The IP100") was a unique and exclusive gathering of senior executives charged with the IP decision-making responsibilities within their organizations. Speakers and attendees represented experienced, management-level professionals from various types of organizations of all sizes and industries.

Unique Program
The IP100 program focused on the following three key topics consistent with the LES (USA & Canada) year-round meetings theme "Deals, deals and more deals:"

  • Game-Changing IP Strategy and Organizational Alignment That Lead to the Right Deal Pipeline
  • Best Practices in Deal Structure and Valuation in IP Acquisitions, Technology Out-Licensing, IP Sales and Joint Development Deals
  • Business Defense Strategies to Deal with Patent Assertions, NPEs and Potential or Real Litigation (Settlement Deals)

Each of these topics was explored in detail in a one-hour panel discussion followed by one-hour small, facilitated group discussions, where the focus was on peer-to-peer interactions, thought-provoking engagement and valuable take-aways to implement and integrate immediately into your organization. Following the meeting, a summary of findings was developed for each topic and distributed exclusively to members of The IP100.

Program development was guided by the new LES (USA & Canada) 2010 Advisory Board, who generously provided input based on first-hand experience of what issues are of concern and relevance to the IP community.
