Each night of our 2011 ITLN Innovation Summit has featured an informal and intimate talk with some of today’s greatest thinkers on the subject of innovation.  Monday evening’s kickoff saw bestselling author and “Thinkers 50 Award” winner Vijay Govindarajan leading a group of 55 – 60 corporate and nonprofit professionals through a shallow dive into his well researched theories of how innovation works.

Tuesday, all day, the group of participants sat through the Leading Innovation workshop based on the work of Govindarajan and coauthor Chris Trimble and their parable How Stella Saved The Farm”.  Trimble, also a professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth was our guest speaker that night.  Chris’s talk fired up the crowd of participants who were already fully engaged in his ideas from the day’s seminar.

Wednesday the Summit turned its attention to the work of Shawn Achor.  His bestselling book The Happiness Advantage provides a set of rules for creating better performance through purposefully positioning yourself with a more positive attitude. And there’s plenty of science to back it up.

Wednesday evening we were treated to another great innovation conversation, this time with Editor in Chief, and Publisher of Technology Review, Jason Pontin.  Pontin was a gas!  Initially starting with a simple slide show of some recent jaw-dropping innovations.  Quickly the questions started coming at him and the evening turned into a fascinating story-telling session on Pontin’s experiences and beliefs about the world of Innovation.
