Overcoming roadblocks in corporate innovation - Lausanne 25.09.2018

Best Practices from Silicon Valley.

Keynote speech by Dr. George Tilesch, Transatlantic Innovation Leader, US Managing Partner of Innomine Group, from Silicon Valley.

Followed by an Innovator’s Circle workshop, and a cocktail dinner.


Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Exponential Innovation, Customer Centricity... these new practices offer the promise of transforming businesses, bringing speed, creativity, disruption, and competitiveness in a world where innovation is - we’re told - the key to success.

But are these concepts the next “revolution” or are they just “too American” to work in Europe? How can we tailor them to our needs, in a culture focused on brilliance, on avoiding failure, and on celebrating tradition and reputation?

We are invited to hear Dr. George Tilesch share some hard-won lessons on building innovation culture across the Atlantic, from his extensive corporate innovation experience connecting the Silicon Valley ecosystem with Europe.

Register here!

Armed with these insights, we will then take part in an Innovator’s Support Circle workshop, sharing stories and learnings with our fellow intrapreneurs and Chief Innovation Officers. Together, we will find solutions to our real-life struggles to bring change to our enterprises.

Innovation is a difficult, often lonely work. Perhaps we will find out, by sharing our burdens and insights, that we are the change we’ve been waiting for.
