Will next year's biggest innovations start in a garage or a cubicle? With more and more brands adding "Innovation" to their business plans, what is the difference between the efforts that are #badass and those that struggle? What about the ones that never even see the light of day?
This panel of brand-side and agency talent discuss the most spectacular successes and biggest challenges in corporate/brand-funded innovation. One part conversation on best practices and one part discussion of real world hurdles, this panel will pull back the curtain on the inner workings of innovating within a corporate setting.
Join Michael Phillips, Partner / SVP of Technology and Innovation at LEVEL Studios; Karl Isaac, Head of Brand Strategy and Innovation at Adobe; Diana Stepner, VP, Innovation Partnerships and Developer Relations at Pearson and Michele McConomy,VP of RocketX, Corporate Innovation Programs at RocketSpace.
