INnovate 2023 Kick-Off and Keynote Speakers
Join Scott Van Pelt on Saturday, February 18, for the INnovate 2023 meeting kickoff session, The Future of Higher Education: A Time for Leadership. As the world shifts to an increasingly interconnected knowledge economy, the intersecting forces of technological innovation, globalization, and demographic change create new challenges, opportunities, and uncertainties for our most enduring social institutions. In this session, Van Pelt will draw on insights from his recent book, "The Great Upheaval: Higher Education's Past, Present, and Uncertain Future," to discuss topics that are of critical concern to postsecondary leaders, trustees, faculty, and staff, with special emphasis on education in the healthcare professions. The session will explore key questions such as: how will colleges and universities change, what will change, and how will these changes occur? What should institutions of higher education consider and explore in order to navigate this uncertain future?
On Sunday, February 19, keynote speaker David J. Friedman, will explore the topic of organizational culture in his address, Leveraging Your Culture as a Competitive Advantage. Whether you’re trying to grow your organization organically, through acquisition, or a combination of both, organizational culture has never been more critical. And while it’s never been more critical, it’s also never been more challenging. Remote and hybrid work, staffing shortages, and the shifting expectations of the workforce have forced many organizations to re-think how they create a culture that can attract and retain the best talent while still delivering high performance.
How you can do it is the topic of our keynote presentation by renowned culture expert, David J. Friedman. Note that this is not your typical theoretical program extolling the virtues of a strong culture. Rather, you’re going to learn a methodology and specific actions steps you can immediately apply to systematically create a culture than can supercharge your success.
