The coming whirlwind of automation stands to displace half of the jobs in the US. Creative / innovative individuals and companies stand the best chance of withstanding changes and profiting from the upheaval. This session, presented by an experienced innovator with 54 patents, shows how to make your position into an innovative one, how to innovate effectively, and what kinds of innovation are of most value to different types of companies. A demonstration of how your internal capabilities work and how to work with them will be included, along with a brief discussion about getting your ideas accepted.


The attendees will learn:
1) what new ideas are best suited to their particular companies (what to concentrate on)
2) How the creative process works (how the mind creates new concepts)
3) How to work within that process to produce new, workable concepts and novel approaches quickly
4) techniques to maximize acceptance
