Strategy & Innovation Thought Leader


I had the honor of speaking at the 2020 Front End of Innovation conference, coordinated by Informa Connect. Especially in “COVID times,” when so many people suffer from video meeting and conference fatigue, the steps to engage as an attendee, let alone speaker, can seem exhausting. NOT the case with Informa Connect. The entire team was proactive, flexible, highly professional and kind. I would engage them to manage a conference our team, department or function hosted without hesitation!
