I am honored and humbled to have been asked by Glenn Llopis to serve as the Summit Experience Director for the inaugural Innovation & Humanity Summit (www.innovationhumanity.com) to be held at Chapman University on January 23, 2010. This pathbreaking Summit, organized by CIH-The Center for Innovation & Humanity, is shaping up to be a spectacular event with a stellar roster of speakers and panelists including Dr. Robert C. Wolcott and Adlai Wertman. The objective of the summit is for all participants to learn about opportunities for how positive social change can be achieved through ethical innovation. We will also discuss ways in which the message and the summit conclusions can inspire a wider audience to get involved. In my role as the Summit Experience Director, I will work with my excellent team of Chapman University students to enhance the experience for delegates and participants by triggering discussion themes, conducting interviews, capturing insightful thoughts, reporting live from the Summit on various social media, etc.
