Innovation conferences

Interested in getting some fresh perspectives and practical know-how about innovation? Two upcoming conferences promise to be out of the box while also providing ideas to use when we have to get back in the box.

The 2006 Marketing Innovation Conference: Building a New Marketing To Meet a Changing Market will be held June 8-9 at Columbia Business School in New York City. Corante and The Center on Global Brand Leadership at Columbia are sponsoring the event.

BIF2, sponsored by the Business Innovation Factory, will be held on October 4-5 in Providence, RI. The 30 speakers are really eclectic, from big company executives, successful entrepreneurs and university presidents and professors to scientists, entertainment executives, writers and journalists. (Each speaker gets just 15 minutes to tell a personal story.)

What I like about these conferences is that there won’t be any talking heads going through PowerPoint decks promoting their companies. Both are about provoking thinking and providing a forum for talking with interesting people we don’t meet in our usual business circles.

Hope to see you in NY or Providence…
