Next Meeting - Wednesday 19th November 2014

Townhouse Building  - TH 102,  Kingston University, Penrhyn Road, Kingston KT1 2EE  (parking available in front of the university); final meeting of the year

6.30 - 7.00

Registration / networking

7.00 - 7.45

Bob Lindsey will present “how Alessi determines whether a product will be a winner”. This was one of the elements which Alberto Alessi presented at Design Junction in September.

Unfortunately Alberto can’t make it to the KRTI next week so I will present it for analysis and discussion (I have been rehearsing a faux Italian/English accent and am having intensive lessons in looking stylish).

Pitches from innovators seeking feedback.

1. Carol Haig will present a child-care product - she has a working prototype and it might be a great crowd-fundable opportunity.

7.45 - 8.05

Break for coffee / networking 

8.05 - 9.00

2. Oliver Christiansen works in the motion picture industry – he will present his invention “a shot specific camera device for the motion picture industry” (no, me neither).

3. Charles Rogerson carries stuff in the boot of his estate car – he can’t find the tidy/safe storage solution – so he’s designed his own.

Feedback sought by both of these guys – and to explore crowd-funding possibilities.


Further networking at the Spring Grove public house, Bloomfield Road, KT1 2SF
