DCU Innovation, Marketing and New Technology Foresight Lecture

Recently, I was invited by Dr. Michael Gannon of the DCU Business School to present a lecture to one of his M.Sc. classes as part of the grandly titled “Innovation, Marketing and New Technology Foresight” lecture series.

The slide set to accompany this lecture is now available on slideshare.

Anybody who attended the lecture is invited to post any observations or feedback they might have in the comments below.
