The Front End of Innovation was a rollicking good time. Compelling speakers, good networking, and timely hors d’oeuvres. I gave a talk about innovation opportunities after the the great recession, the theme from the book I’m writing. I focused more than I expected on health care and education. (Doesn’t it seem like this aging, plump version of America is becoming a giant infirmary with a flag? Sad…but not without opportunity.)
I knew the speech went well when afterwords, I was barraged by questions and invitations to speak at various companies. I even had one attendee ask me whether I thought his daughter should go into the health field. Helping raise other people’s children is where this futurist draws the line!
According to Deborah Hatcher at IIRUSA, I was one of the top ranked speakers with a 4.5 out of 5 attendee score. You can read coverage of my talk here.
