2021 Innovation Engineering Online Conference

November 9, 2021 – 1-4p ET

Get a jolt of 50 ideas to jump start innovation and cohesion in your teams


What Can You Expect

In the 2021 Predictive Index CEO Benchmarking report, the #1 concern of leaders at this moment: effective team cohesion. Between understaffing, virtual versus in-person work, business fluctuations, onboarding new staff… It can be a drain on everyone,  including zapping the energy to take on new change and innovation.

The 2021 Innovation Engineering Conference – Jump Start Your Team –  will give you an explosion of over 50 fresh ideas for ways to jump start the cohesion and innovative output of your teams, even in the constraints of the current environment.

This year’s conference main stage presentations explore different angles of team dynamics and innovation.  Each presentation will give you fresh insights and real-world experiences you can use with your own teams.

You’ll Get Ideas On

  • How to address the changing culture and mindset of your teams (using surprising new discoveries as of October 2021 on the world’s largest data set on innovation and culture)
  • How to keep your team aligned when doing radical business model innovation (from a CEO that’s turned the world of food upcycling upside-down)
  • Unexpected research-based marketing tactics that give you the biggest bang for your time and money
  • creating an environment that encourages whole human-centered collaboration
  • organizational design structures for innovation teams that align with virtual/in-person teams
  • and dozens more.

Energizing Virtual Conference

Don’t worry, just because it’s a virtual event doesn’t mean it will be boring! All the content will be presented in 30-minute mini-sessions, like circuit training, with active workouts and short breaks throughout.  The first 20 minutes are filled with high-octane bursts of new information to challenge the status quo way of thinking, followed by 10-minute brain breaks with lighter content.
