With the 2016 Ignite Summit right around the corner, we’re thrilled to share with you one of the newest additions to our list of amazing speakers.
Dev Patnaik is the Founder and CEO of Jump Associates, a strategy and innovation firm that helps companies create new businesses and reinvent existing ones — their impressive list of clients include: Target, GE, and Nike. He’s also an adjunct professor at Stanford University where he teaches students methods to discover insights that lead to the creation of new products and services.
Drawing upon his extensive background in innovation, Dev will focus heavily on what CEOs look for from innovation offices at Ignite. If you’re running or thinking about running an innovation program, knowing the expectations of your CEO even if he or she doesn’t explicitly reveal them is pretty important.
Watch the video below to get a glimpse of Dev in action. In under 3 minutes, he shares insightful innovation knowledge that we can’t wait to hear more of at Ignite.
Here are a couple highlights:
“Creating new markets comes from seeing the world through new eyes. It’s about having a fundamentally different perspective on the way the world works.”
“You need to find a model of innovation that works for who you are as company and what makes you great.”
The core focus of the Ignite Summit is to give you actionable takeaways, whether that’s from a session or exchanging ideas with peers, that can impact your company’s innovation efforts. That’s why the conference is structured in a way that maximizes every opportunity for this to happen.
One thing is for sure: you don’t want to miss this.
