The article presents information on the ideasUK annual conference of the Institute of Management Services in Great Britain in November 2003. This highly successful event was the 17th Annual Conference, and one that again provided delegates with a wealth of information and ideas to take back to their respective organizations to enable them to better promote the value of capturing employee ideas and encourage innovation. The opening keynote address was given by Alison Platt, Deputy Managing Director, Membership Division in Great Britain, BUPA. Platt's presentation, The People Side of Innovation, explained the importance of utilizing the expertise within the organization. In the opening address on the second day of the conference, Roger Cliffe, Quality Director of Vodafone, again emphasized the importance of people in the innovation process. Nigel Crouch, Senior Industrialist of Living Innovation Programme at the Department of Trade and Industry, gave the closing keynote address. The highlight of ideasUK each year is the presentation of the awards for the Idea of the Year Competition. The overall winner for the idea considered to be the best from all submitted to the competition was won by Stan Bamforth of BT Ideas.
