Innovation isn’t hard, but it certainly isn’t easy. Most successful innovators would say that the ability to collaborate can make all the difference between successful innovation and failure to effect any change. For this exciting webinar we bring together top thinkers and doers—people who have built and fostered creativity and collaboration into innovative advancements.
How do you solve hard problems? How do you move from an idea to a result? How do you build and support a culture of innovation from the bottom up and from the top down? Join us to hear how our panelists have answered these questions. 
Whether you are someone who actively innovates as part of your job or you are someone who wants to move your organization towards being more innovative, this webinar will offer valuable ideas, inspiration, and practical applicable examples.
