Dr Andy Wynn talks to students about innovation and business in China


Over the years China has turned into an exciting business giant, to the point where it’s probably easier to count the countries that don’t do business with them than those that do. Their reputation for design, developing and manufacturing products has gained a significant reputation. So, what’s the inside story, what is the true state of innovation in China?

To answer that and other questions we’re delighted to welcome back Dr Andy Wynn who again will be sharing his expertise with our students from his base in Spain. Andy, is a former Chief Technology Officer of a billion-dollar FTSE 250 multinational manufacturer – with over 30 years’ experience of delivering business growth through new technologies across the world. For a number of years Andy (along with his family) lived in China, so his insight into innovation and business in China is not given from a visitor’s perspective, but from someone who was resident and working in the country for a considerable time.  

Topics to be discussed by Andy include; a) Innovation and Business in China, b) Case Studies from Andy’s years living and working in China, c) The China business experience for Westerners and finally d) The Risks for Western companies in China, including intellectual property.

If you’re involved in innovation and product development anyway – and you’re looking for a really good book to read, then consider buying Andy’s latest offering ‘Cracking the Innovation Code”. Alan Mumby, International Innovation Management lecturer says, “This is an excellent book that I’ve just finished reading….cover to cover – brilliant!”.
