(ALL) The 3rd Annual American Innovation Conference

November 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

THE AMERICAN INNOVATION CONFERENCE is dedicated to sharing, collaborating, and celebrating customer-focused innovation and its impact on company success. Companies that are perceived to be innovative by their customers are more attractive, enjoy higher loyalty, and are ultimately more successful than companies that lag in innovativeness.

Join us for the keynote presentation by Sheri Feinzig, IBM, Talent Management Solutions Consulting and Smarter Workforce Institute, and to hear success stories and lessons learned from the most innovative companies in America, as well as insights from the authors of the American Innovation Index. Last year’s speakers and attendees included many award winners, such as:
