Innovation Driven Growth: Rethinking How Innovation Happens in Your Organization
International speaker, author, entrepreneur and innovative thinker David Peterson has created a new keynote series focused on how organizations can harness enterprise-wide innovation to fuel growth and achieve sustainability even in the most challenging competitive markets. Using Metacognition, this Innovation Driven Growth content will challenge attendees to “think about how they think” to realize that innovation can occur regardless of their organizational role. And all content is delivered in David’s signature high energy, fun and engaging style.
There are three separate keynotes under the Innovation Driven Growth umbrella. They are: Igniting the Flame of Innovation, Keeping the Wildfire of Innovation Raging, and Keeping the Innovation Fire Burning. Session descriptions are below. You can have any of these as a keynote, perhaps having David deliver them to your attendees over a series of meetings. Or you can have one delivered as a keynote and other as a breakout session. David also creates amazing workshops and can customize the material to fit your meeting format, educational goals or conference / meeting branding.

David’s 2015 General Session “Grounded” raised the bar! It was so unique and entertaining but had such a great message that spoke to everyone, regardless of rank or position.
The Grounded In and Grounded By principles were at once both accessible and applicable.
Dr. Jon Krispin, Valdosta State University
David is a delight to work with. We had some ‘technology’ issues with the hotel’s overhead LCD and screen but he was a real pro and bounced around with all the changes in an unflappable way! He was so much fun and a real treasure trove of information.
