Description

Join us for a fireside chat with Scott Kirsner, the CEO of Innovation Leader. Innovation Leader is an unbiased, independent media and events company based in Boston that is focused on helping change-makers in large organizations deliver real impact. He'll talk about common obstacles and enablers of innovation in big companies; offer examples of who is doing what, and conduct a quick exercise to help you understand what stage of innovation "evolution" your company is at. Scott is focused on helping change-makers deliver a real impact. Through Innovation Leader, Scott has access to the top innovation leaders from over 1000 companies, and he will be in Hartford sharing his insights on what innovation leaders should focus on and the best practices to implement innovation.

During this event, Scott will also give those attending a sneak peek from his upcoming report. Individuals who are already subscribed to Innovation Leader find inspiration from what companies are doing and trying in their industry - but even more so from adjacent or unrelated industries. Scott’s report will help bring to light what type of innovative ideas have made a lasting impact on multiple industries. This event, and the preview of the report, will reveal some of those insights from over 100 innovation leaders.

Scott is also a contributor to multiple publications, such as the New York Times, Wired, Fast Company, Harvard Business Review online, CIO Magazine and many more. Besides writing, Scott is also an editor of "The Convergence Guide to Life Sciences in New England."He’s also written three books: "Fans, Friends & Followers," "Inventing the Movies," and "The Future of Web Video." He is a co-founder and advisor to the Nantucket Conference on Entrepreneurship & Innovation and the Convergence Forum. When not writing, Scott is a speaker and moderator at events related to innovation and entertainment, including the MIT R&D Conference Conference, Sundance Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Harvard Business School Media & Entertainment Conference, HubWeek and many more.
