Can IP provide a competitive, commercial advantage? Free workshops and consultations at Small Busine


Creating a great product or brand is one thing.  Legally protecting it, and utilising that protection to your advantage, is a whole different ball game.

The Small Business Festival (SBF) Victoria takes to the streets again, and DCC is proud to be offering a series of six innovative ‘How to’ workshops throughout August 2016.

What will you get out of this workshop?

These workshops will provide the audience with the knowledge of how to use their brand, ideas and innovations to give them a competitive edge in the marketplace. Be proactive, not reactive – your intellectual property (IP) strategy can provide you with a vital business tool, we’ll explain why.

Discover how to leverage your intellectual property (IP) to:

–    deter competitors; protect your brand, products and innovations; 
–    charge a premium for your products and services;
–    improve business valuation; 
–    attract business investment and funding; 
–    and secure your online presence.

One-on-one sessions available

DCC will also be running a series of complimentary 20-minute one-on-one meetings following the seminar where you have the opportunity to meet up with our IP specialists and discuss your specific IP strategy. Book in a meeting via email to sbf@davies.com.au, further details below.
