Thanks to you my first book – Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire – is off to a great start, and with a little more exposure it has the potential to become a best-seller.
To kick start the development of my next book project (and our search for innovation heroes), from March 21-25, 2011 I will be traveling to Silicon Valley to interview companies seeking to make innovation excellence a deep capability of their organization.
The schedule so far is:
March 21 (AM) – Intuit – Mountain View, CA
March 21 (PM) – [open]
March 22 (AM) – PARC – Palo Alto, CA
March 22 (PM) – [open]
March 23 – The Economist innovation event – Berkeley, CA
March 24 – The Economist innovation event – Berkeley, CA
March 25 – Kaiser Permanente – San Leandro, CA
As you can see there are a couple of openings (Monday and Tuesday afternoons) that I would be happy to fill with any of the following:
- Interviewing organizations about their innovation excellence efforts for case studies to include in my next book project and/or the upcoming Innovation Excellence site
- Media interviews about Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire
- Media interviews about the upcoming Innovation Excellence site
If you think your organization would be a good fit for a case study on innovation excellence or you would like to interview me for your site when I’m there, please let me know.
Or if you’d like to meet up at The Economist innovation event, or for dinner around the San Bruno or Millbrae area where I plan to stay, please let me know.
