Keynote Speaker - David Chalk

The irony of innovation...which is about doing something or producing something new's nothing new. It has been behind advances in every industry for hundreds of years. Yet many organizations today consider it a new concept and are challenged to define it or implement it into their every day business.   In this keynote, David simplifies innovation by defining it as product focused or process focused and by explaining the difference between incremental Innovation and drastic innovation. He shares why Innovation should not be considered a plan, a strategy, a phase, a goal but a constant focus that drives the advancement of your organization every day. To succeed in the 21st century, innovation must be in perpetual motion and those devoid of innovation are only maintaining the status quo and destined to failure. David shares how to empower your entire organization to contribute to a culture of innovation as everyone can and should play a role to keep your organization ahead of the curve.
