Competitive Intelligence

Tactical, Operational & Strategic Analysis of Markets, Competitors & Industries

Will You Be Sharing Insight and Inspiration? Intelligent Intelligence Career Planning Networking Event, 10th June 2010


Further to the market research that the UK Competitive Intelligence Forum has undertaken during April/May, we provide an environment to explore how people have entered, evolved in their roles and for some where is the next destination with market/competitive intelligence.  This will be complimented with discussion about emergent intelligence needs at the cutting edge of commercial intelligence and the application of CI techniques in the field.  Attendees will be walking away with answers to the following questions:

  • What is the difference between a good strategic analyst, a CI practitioner and a strategy consultant in practice?
  • Where are the organisational sweet spots for advancing your career and what could I do next?
  • If the demand is increasing considerably, why is the ‘market’ so ill-defined and fragmented?

As ever, there will be the opportunity for light refreshment and to greet peers and practitioners warmly. The participants to kick off and facilitate what promises to be a highly interactive event will be:
