As our economy heads towards an inevitable slowdown, it’s more important than ever for businesses to adapt, evolve, and innovate. The problem is, organizations are often stifled by bureaucracy and an environment that discourages new thinking by encouraging the status quo. In this session Jeff Tan, MD of Product & Innovation at Dentsu, explains what it means to develop an Ideas Advocate culture; one that rewards curiosity, embraces new ideas, enriches relationships and gets sh*t done. He will cover the fundamental human factors needed to develop a culture of innovation including strong empathy, curiosity, psychological safety and a no-jerks policy. Student Sponsor: Three Sixty Eight Photography: Eye Wander Photo REMINDER: Bring costumes (new or gently used) and bagged candy for our Halloween Costume & Candy Drive, benefiting the efforts of 10/31 Consortium.
