Some companies have innovation in their DNA. For others, it’s an afterthought that becomes of paramount importance only when the business is struggling to recapture the energy and excitement of its founding. For still others, innovation is a purposeful part of their business planning, requiring hard work and careful cultivation.

As our region explores opportunities to enhance our collective capacity for innovation, we will take a look at how both local and global business leaders leverage, manage and nurture innovation to breathe new life into waning markets, shift priority areas and create opportunity from risk. Attendees will hear how major corporations are creating frameworks to drive new ideas and invention in their products, services and workforce.

Featured Speaker
Innovation Talks features inspiring and informational discussions of best practices in innovation management. Keynote speaker Beijia Ma, Thematic Investing Strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in London, will provide an overview of global innovation trends followed by individual talks from regional heads of innovation who will detail the triumphs and challenges of their leading-edge practices.
