Innovation Jams + CREATIVE DEBRIEFS

We will begin by exploring how to foster a mindset to innovate, and continue to weave creative reflections throughout the experience. Then, after engaging with and hearing from a broad diversity of innovative examples, we will help you answer the question: So what? Through facilitated creative processes and design thinking, we will help you make connections, generate new ideas, and apply these insights to your organization.
