Through the gritty experience of a proven startup leader to nearly three decades of research on innovation and hyper-growth leadership, Josh Linkner brings the ideal street cred to his message. 

A highly tuned culture of innovation can be your most powerful competitive edge. Most people think that creativity and innovation are only for a select few. Corporate gurus, scientists, billionaire inventors. But what if every single person at your organization became an innovator? Each team member using creative problem-solving to tackle challenges and tapping inventive thinking to fuel growth.

Think how powerful your company can be if every one innovates, every day.

Innovative companies outperform their competitors. They win the talent war. They create massive value. It's time to unlock your teams's creative potential, and innovation expert Josh Linkner is the ideal guide to help you harness it.

Carly Patterson
1:30 - 3:00 p.m., LVCC

Carly Patterson captured the heart of the nation when she won the All Around Gold Medal in Women's Gymnastics at the 2004 Olympics. She was the first American woman to win the title in 20 years, also taking home silver medals for balance beam and the Women's team competition. Shortly after her return to the USA, Patterson discovered she had several bulging discs in her back and made the difficult decision to retire from the sport. In the years that followed, she pursued a career in music, went to college and got married, all while grappling with the question: What do you do when your greatest accomplishment is behind you? Her achievements as a gymnast and the opportunities she pursued after retiring have given Patterson a unique perspective on success, fulfillment and taking risks. Her authentic, humorous and down-to-earth communication style is the perfect vehicle for a message we all need to hear to embrace true success and find lasting fulfillment.
