The impact of COVID-19 has profoundly changed the way businesses operate, sparking innovation in some while compelling others to close their doors. What many companies do not realise is the wealth of their intangible assets.

This session will focus on how companies can identify, value and monetize assets such as data, confidential information, trade secrets and other intangible assets to build revenue and increase profitability.
