The MA Innovation Management graduating class of 2012 is putting on an exclusive conference titled ‘Overturn’ on 19th June, 2012 that brings together together professionals, academics, students and guests to spark a conversation about overturning the way we look at the world to make innovation happen. We will be streaming live on the night of this event with keynote speaker Max McKeown, innovation guru and author of books such as Adaptability: The Art of Wining in an Age of Uncertainty.
About Max McKeown:
At times like these, sticking rigidly to any strategy is like King Canute trying to hold back the waves. Instead we must learn to surf what we cannot control, adjusting our strategies to suit the prevailing conditions.
Max shows how to survive and even thrive in crisis. Old plans won’t help; simply hoping for the best won’t work. Combining cutting edge strategy and management science with pragmatic wisdom, wit and pop culture, he pinpoints how the most resilient leaders continue to inspire all-important, trust-filled, make-a-difference energy from their people.
Max is a compelling communicator. There are no crass “work is wonderful” pleas, no “show me the money.” He explains how to tap into potential and demonstrates that excellence can cost less than mediocrity.
A strategy and leadership coach for some of most admired companies in the world, Max has also been elected to the Customer Service Hall of Fame and hailed as a ‘Star of Human Resources’ by Personnel Today. His expertise spans innovation, leadership and strategy.
Max has a PhD and MBA with a speciality in strategy and strategic change. He is the author of several best-selling books including The Strategy Book, Adaptability and The Truth about Innovation.
