BEI: Back End of Innovation Comes to Silicon Valley in November

Great news, BEI: Back End of
Innovation
is coming to Silicon Valley this November! With little to no
travel required, this is the one event you can't afford to miss.

BEI: Back End of Innovation is a conference focused on the execution of
innovation. It's where the entire innovation process comes to life - from
leadership and organizational structure, to process and strategy, to
commercializing new ideas, and ultimately driving bottom line profitability.

Highlights from the 2013 Program:

YOU + LUMINARIES activate divergent thinking: Not just
anyone can take the keynote stage. Only those that inspire thinking that has
the potential to bring about major changes are invited.
  • The #3 on the
    Thinkers Top 50 - Vijay Govindarajan
    , best-selling co-author, Reverse
    Innovation, talks execution in unexplored territory. 
  •  Google's Innovation
    Evangelist - Michele R. Weslander Quaid
    , who is also their chief technology
    officer, proposes that how an idea is assessed and communicated internally is
    often more important than the idea itself.  

YOU + Experiential
Adventures make it real: You wanted ACTION LEARNING
. Silicon Valley is
known for making ideas happen - so why not get outside the conference walls and
experience it first-hand. Go behind the scenes for tours and presentations at
PARC, Intuit and PayPal.
YOU + Business Cases
validate:
Big picture thinking and outside inspiration is key, but you need
practicality from best in class innovation catalysts. Learn from your own
industry, or borrow lessons learned from other industries. BEI as 18+ sectors
represented - so the choice is yours. (Eli Lilly, HP, Coke, Sonoco, Motorola,
J&J, Genentech, EMC, Lockheed Martin, Colgate...)

Execution takes time. Just taking initiative alone will not get innovation to
work. BEI makes innovation happen. Join us in November as we put innovation to
work in real-time, for real results.

We hope to see you in November,

The BEI Team
