We are thrilled to have Matthew Miller, Innovation Director of the Vancouver Island Health Authority who will share his innovation journey in the British Columbia health sector.
Expect a session that will provide a lens into how innovation happens, or doesn't, in an extremely complex environment inside an industry that needs to reckon with challenges that span the entire human condition from pre-birth to post-death. Engage in the discussion about what it takes to innovate for a 22,000 employee organization with social, emotional, financial, bureaucratic, regulated, interdependent and political constraints.

Who should attend this event? Managers, directors and executives interested in learning how to set up and/or improve existing corporate innovation and continuous improvement initiatives. We expect to discuss some of the most common thorny aspects of innovating within an organization:
Leading without authority
Triaging and ideas selection
Winning hearts and minds
Showcasing innovation results
Note: Food and drinks will be provided.
The building doors will be locked, but we will have someone by the eastern entrance on Hornby St. to let you in.
Calling to all people interested in advancing and fostering innovation!
We'll meet regularly to discuss new technological trends and their potential application in business, society and the environment. This is a multidisciplinary forum where, collectively, will be uncovering how new technologies are altering the way we work and live today and how these trends will shape our future.
Innovation is really about connecting the dots and this normally happens at the intersection of domains: expect conversations ranging from genomics + music, space travel + customer experience, big data + healthcare, wearables + neurobiology. Only requirement: be very curious.
