We intend to share and discuss the results of the meeting with IP Business Congress delegates during breakout and plenary sessions.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 1, 2009
Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine, the world's leading provider of IP business news, today announced it will host the inaugural meeting of the Chief Intellectual Property Officer (CIPO) Manifesto Working Group. The event will be attended by a number of top CIPOs from around the world, including: Marshall Phelps, Microsoft; Damon Matteo, PARC; Sherry Knowles, GlaxoSmithKline; Carl Horton, GE; Ruud Peters, Philips IP & Standards; Peter Cicala, Shire Pharmaceuticals; Bill Elkington, Rockwell Collins; Beatrix de Russé, Thomson; and Scott Frank, AT&T. Other leading IP thought-leaders will also be taking part in the invitation-only meeting, which is being held in Chicago on 21st June.
Through a series of innovative and interactive exercises, led by Luke Hohmann the CEO of Enthiosys Inc, the group will explore the ideal CIPO profile and the organizational environment within which the CIPO should operate, as well as the responsibilities that should come with the role and the metrics by which CIPO performance should be measured.
"We believe the CIPO role will become increasingly important, as businesses begin to understand just how important IP rights are to their core performance. We hope this meeting will form the basis for on-going research into the role and how it can best be shaped to meet the needs of the 21st century corporation," explained Joff Wild, IAM magazine's Editor. "We intend to share and discuss the results of the meeting with IP Business Congress delegates during breakout and plenary sessions."
The IP Business Congress is expected to be the single most important gathering in the IP community this year. Over 300 top executives, including Chief IP Officers from Fortune 500 companies, heads of IP at other major companies, global IP thought leaders and senior policy makers, will gather for two days of top-level discussion and debate at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago from the 21st to the 23rd of June.
