Last week our global brand Booth Welsh in Scotland hosted an international Fresh Thinking Labs session with partners Workplace Innovation Europe CLG on Industry 4.0 and #Digitalisation.    Companies travelled from all over the world to attend including our team member, Bernadette, who heads up Innovation at Clough.  There were so many great takeaways and discussions that started with a whole host of businesses in different sectors sitting around the table (quite literally) sharing innovate ideas and practices.  A summary blog on the event from Workplace Innovation Europe is here: #CloughGlobal #collaboratetoinnovate
