We believe that in the world of innovation it’s vital to keep exposing yourself to new ideas and influences in order to find the new connections that spark ideas and opportunities. But don’t just take it from us: Steve Jobs said, ‘Creativity is just connecting things’; Einstein held ‘The essence of creativity is combinatory play’; and Picasso reminded us that ‘Good artists copy, great artists steal’!
So we’re delighted to announce that Brand Genetics will be chairing the Global Innovation Forum 2014 (19 – 20 November, London). The 4th Global innovation Forum will discuss the major challenges and opportunities in the field of innovation, as well as the latest trends in creativity, design, R&D and new product development. We believe it’s a chance to open up to the new connections that might just lead you to that big opportunity.
With an outstanding array of speakers including representatives from some of the world’s most innovative companies, including Google, Facebook, J&J, PepsiCo, Pixar, Mondelez, NASA and Nike, it will be a great opportunity to understand the new advances and thinking in the wide-world of innovation.
For our part we’re looking forward to drawing inspiration from those operating at the edges and pushing the boundaries of innovation, given it is increasingly recognised as not just important but core to any business’ success and survival in today’s world of disruptive challenges and global competition.
If you can join us (ticket prices are reduced until 22 June) it will be great to see you there. For those who can’t for any reason, we will be looking to summarise and capture some of the key themes that emerge from the two days of debate and discussion, so do watch this space: hopefully it might spark a few new connections for you.
