Dave Oakes Graduates from Keele Uni's MCIL Innovation Leadership Programme

Posted on 17 Apr 2018

Congratulations to Dave Oakes, Powelectrics MD, who has recently graduated from Keele University’s Mercia Centre Innovation Leadership Programme … a kind of mini-MBA!

Since last Autumn, Dave has been participating in this programme aimed at influencers in innovation-led, knowledge-intensive SME businesses. He has been gaining inspiration from specialist coaches and peers, to help Powelectrics develop products and services and achieve strategic business growth.

“This experience has been incredibly positive! The opportunity to hone my aspirations for Powelectrics with proven ideas from other sectors and gain feedback from respected entrepreneurs has been invaluable.

The experience has been so positive that Powelectrics will now continue to develop our relationship Keele University. We plan to collaborate on research projects, for example by providing research roles for graduate researchers, to uphold our commitment to continuous customer-driven product development and provide real-world commercially-focused development experience to Keele students.”

Well done Dave…and we look forward to seeing the fruits of your labours in the coming months!
