Transversal CEO discusses knowledge at Cambridge “Enterprise Tuesday”
Heather Richards, CEO of Transversal, shared her expertise in knowledge management with Cambridge businesspeople at an event on 12th February. Heather discussed how organizations can best preserve their knowledge assets and other intellectual property, as part of a panel that also included John Snyder, CEO of Grapeshot, and Shaun Grady, Vice-President of Business Development Operations at AstraZeneca.
The free event was part of “Enterprise Tuesday”, a weekly forum on topics of interest to new and established entrepreneurs hosted by the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. Sessions are open to all and consist of a presentation from a panel of experts, followed by networking. Previous events have focused on topics including raising startup funding and attracting top talent.
Heather regularly contributes her time and experience to industry events around Cambridge. As befits the current holder of the Judge Business School’s own Woman Entrepreneur of the Year award, she has supported female entrepreneurs through the Female Founders Forum. Heather is also a passionate advocate of incorporating talent from the arts and humanities into technological innovation.
Says Heather: “Enterprise Tuesday is a great opportunity for people from different industry sectors and with different levels of experience to meet and exchange ideas. It’s yet another example of the vibrant culture of innovation we enjoy here in Cambridge. I’m delighted to have been invited to speak about my own specialism, knowledge management, and to have participated in a stimulating discussion with the panel and the audience.”
