Conference Highlights

Sunday Keynote

Leading Innovation & Effective Culture Change

Jonah Berger
Wharton Professor;
World-Renowned Expert on Innovation and Change;
Best-selling Author

Based on his groundbreaking research on organizational communication and word of mouth, Jonah Berger examines the science behind leading effective change in an era of dramatic technological and business transformation. Why is it so difficult to promote change in the first place? How do you grease the system to make people more likely to adopt positive behaviors and ignore negative ones? How do you push past mental barriers that insist innovative practices are impossible or fraught with risk? Read more about what he will offer.
