Increasing Innovation in Your Organization: How to Build a Culture of Innovation and Keep it Going


Presented By Glenn Karwoski


Why should someone attend?  Who should attend?


It seems that you can’t read anything about business today without seeing the word innovation, and typically what has been written is either too simplified or too complex. Glenn Karwoski has been teaching creative process and innovation for 15 years at the University of St. Thomas and has been practicing what he teaches at the consulting agency, The Business of Ideas. His presentation, “Where are your next great ideas coming from?” details the most critical elements that an organization has to have in order to be innovative; how to maintain a culture of innovation; how to generate ideas beyond your typical brainstorm; and how to sell your ideas.

What are the three or four most important things the audience will learn from your presentation?  How will they be able to apply this knowledge to their business responsibilities? 


1.       What are the key characteristics and elements that an organization needs to be innovative

2.       How to maintain a culture of innovation

3.       Generating ideas beyond the typical brainstorm

4.       How to sell your ideas
