Innovate the Way You Innovate—Stephen Shapiro
Well-intentioned leaders, in their attempts to boost innovation, are inadvertently destroying it. What if everything you know about creating a culture of innovation is wrong? What if the way you are measuring innovation is choking it? What if your market research is asking all of the wrong questions? Shapiro draws from his experience leading Accenture’s thriving 20,000-person process and innovation practice to show you how to innovate the way you innovate.
Banning the “Yes, But…”: Cultivating imagination to drive meaningful results—Susan Robertson
Too often, incredible ideas are prematurely killed when well-intentioned colleagues become the self-appointed “idea police,” pointing out all the shortcomings of an initial concept. In this session and workshop, Susan Robertson will draws on the core principles of improv to help audiences harness—rather than restrict—imagination. Participants will learn specific, practical, and powerful skills that can be used to liberate creativity and innovation.

In this interactive session, explore how to use this powerful tool to generate fresh ideas for your event.
