The latest Birds of a Feather (BOF) Innovation Leaders event drew an impressive group of elite innovation practitioners to Motorola Solutions headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois. Attendees hailed from top global companies including Pepsico, Sara Lee, Humana, Whirlpool Corporation, Farm Credit Services of America and more. Each person gained invaluable insight through direct peer-to-peer discussions, informative presentations and breakout sessions all set within an exclusive setting that took attendees inside Motorola Solutions innovation center. As Paul Tran, Director of Business Development at Brightidea states people "shared success that could only be learned by real practitioners".
Besides an interactive tour of Motorola's Innovation Center, attendees were treated talks from renown practitioners Heidi Hattendorf, Director of Innovation Development at Motorola and Michele Egger, innovation Capability Operations, at Chevron as well as Jeffrey Phillips, author of "Relentless Innovation". The eventful day also included a screening of filmmaker, futurist, and 'epiphany addict' Jason Silva's short film "Imagination" and smaller breakout sessions where attendees were able to participate in more in-depth discussions that covered the how-to's for innovation programs, latest enhancements in ideation technology, best practices, and more.
