An Evening with Navi Radjou (Co-Author of From Smart to Wise)

You are going to want to see Navi Radjou talk at our January meeting. He is the co-author of Jugaad Innovation and From Smart to Wise. In this meeting, Navi will be talking about increasing creativity within organizations.

Navi promotes the view that in order to garner creativity, creative leaders are essential. He believes that individuals holding senior positions must realize and understand how to harness the potential creativity in their organization, team or customers.

Navi, a highly sought-after speaker, is often approached by Harvard University and the World Economic Forum for his insightful speeches on leadership. He provided consulting advice for countless leading organizations including GM, Microsoft and Procter & Gamble and coined several business concepts including 'Global Innovation Networks' and 'Indovation.'

Currently, he is a columnist for the Harvard Business Review and a fellow at Cambridge Judge Business School. Prior to these positions, he was the Executive Director for the Cambridge Judge Business School's Centre for India & Global Business. With his work featured in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, Navi is considered an expert and trusted mind in the business community.

We are pleased to have Navi. A special thanks to Paula Thornton for helping to set up this meeting.

    It was great. I wish I had been able to be in the same room with Navi, but it was great of Usability Sciences to accommodate us as they did. I really enjoyed the talk, and I think the subject applies to everyone across all aspects of the digital media world. I bought Navi's book, and I absolutely look forward to reading it.

    I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed this presentation. Navi is an engaging speaker and there is a lot that can be learned from his exploration of frugal innovations. I will be reading both of his books!

      Drive-by recommended to the conversation where I 'met' Navi http://lnkd.in/Eu6T9V­. Feel free to join in -- we support continuous conversations. Especially useful to share some of your 'insights' from the book. Then we can broaden the conversation when his new book comes out.
