Programme & Speakers

  • 13:30 - 13:40 - Introduction from the chair
  • 13:40 - 14:25 - Negotiation: The Psychology of Effective Business Discussions
    Marios Georgiou

    Marios Georgiou

    Marios Georgiou is an IP professional with 10 years experience in industry, who is training as a psychologist (DPsych, City University of London). Marios’ scientific training is in molecular biology, and his postgraduate education is in IP and, more recently, psychology. Recent positions included IP Manager at BenevolentAI, Head of IP at Ivy Farm Technologies, and Head of Knowledge Management at Intanify.
    Marios’ aim is to promote person-centred design into companies including their innovation and IP practices. The goal is to create processes that are designed for the individuals they are made for in mind. Things that look good on the page and in principle don’t always translate to action, which is where psychology comes in. Marios’ aim is to create engagement both in-house and private practice. After founding Depth at Work, he now supports companies through workshops, trainings, and bespoke interventions for longer-term change.
