Innovation Starts With I - Presented by Saleema Vellani

Innovation Starts With I - Presented by Saleema Vellani

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)


Innovation is more than creating the newest technology or solving world-scale challenges. Lets redefine innovation, an exhausted term used by anyone with the next big thing, bringing it back to its roots - which stems from being human. 

Discover how Innovation starts with" I ", and learn to use an innovation process to reinvent ourselves when making a personal or professional pivot, how to build more genuine relationships with those around us, and how to ignite an innovative mindset to improve self-awareness, empathy, and resilience. 

Meet Our Presenter:  Saleema Vellani
