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.
