Gemini Project Workshop
"The Innovator's DNA: What Distinguishes the Best from the Rest?"
Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012
Nolte Center, Room 140
In this workshop, you'll get a "reality check" from a panel of industry professionals who will share their experience. The workshop will also explore what research says are the key differentiators for innovators. If you aspire to be a great innovator, be sure to attend.
Free food and networking after the panel!
Technical expertise is absolutely necessary, but not sufficient to excel as a technical professional in today's dynamic, globally connected and competitive world. Employers are looking for engineers and scientists who can add real value, right away, by collaborating effectively in cross-functional teams, leading key product and process improvement initiatives, adapting quickly to continuous changes, and developing customer solutions that generate profitable growth. This is innovation leadership. This is what distinguishes the best from the rest.
The Gemini Project is designed to help you "jump start" your career as an innovation leader by broadening your mind set, expanding your tool set, and developing the "soft skills" and business acumen you will need to create your own "ripple effect" of success.
