A Crash Course on Creativity with Professor Tina Seelig, Executive Director for the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Author of inGenius: A Crash Course on Creativity
Creativity often feels like a mystery. Whether we are struggling to generate fresh ideas or staring at problems with no solutions in sight, the spark of creative genius often seems out of reach. In this talk Professor Tina Seelig reveals a set of tools and conditions that we each control - our Innovation Engine - that allows us to increase our own creativity and that of our teams and organizations. She shows that just as the scientific method demystifies the process of discovery, there is a formal process for unlocking the pathway to invention.

Interactive Smart Networking Session
Networking is one of the fastest, most cost effective ways to advance your career and grow your business. But it can also be a frustrating, time-consuming endeavor if you don't know how to put together the pieces of your online and offline strategy.
Enjoy two of Liz's most popular events rolled into one! A content-rich seminar to help you build your own Smart Networking roadmap PLUS Liz's unique twist on "speed networking" to help you practice essential skills first hand while having meaningful interactions with fellow participants.
Discover and apply the foundational skills that all successful networkers know:
Plus, get guided instructions on how to develop a clear elevator pitch, specific action steps to make follow up a breeze, and targeted ways to leverage social media.
You will leave with real connections, not just contacts, and the confidence to put yourself out there in any networking situation.
