It's high time we talked about innovation! So, without further ado..I present Greg Satell and a discussion on innovation.
We are meeting in a new location. Ciright was kind enough to donate their space for the evening. You won't want to miss the presentation or their office.
6 – 6:30 Networking, Drinks (Beer, Wine, Soda, and Light Snacks)
6:30 – 7:15 Greg Satell - 6 Things Great Innovators Do Differently
7:15 - 7:45 - Discussion
7:45 – 8:00 Networking, helping others
There are many ideas about innovation, but how many of them actually work and which just sound clever? The only way to find out is to look at people who have actually done something to create the future.
Based on research that led to the upcoming book, Mapping Innovation, this session takes you inside great innovative organizations such as IBM, Experian, MD Anderson Cancer Center and Argonne National Laboratories, as well as successful startups like Elance, Bloomreach and Mendix to show you how your organization can become more innovative.
Greg Satell is a popular writer, speaker and innovation advisor, whose work has appeared in Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Fast Company, Inc. and other A-list publications.
