I was invited to attend the 2015 Institute for Innovation in Large Organizations (ILO) event in Minneapolis. The attendees where specifically innovation officers for large organizations. There was good representation from major corporations and institutions across the Twin Cities. The event featured speakers sharing insights into best practices and innovation trends. Attendees also participated in active workshopping around topics and peer to peer networking. The ILO is a membership based organization that provides events, research, and consulting services to its member bases. I found the networking to be fantastic and interesting to meet so many professionals who are early in their journey of building out innovation practices within their corporations. I look forward to future events.
