Lot’s of big Fall events coming up. One of the best is BIF—the Business Innovation Factory
People come and tell 15 minute stories about innovation. I’ll be co-hosting this year at the conference, which starts Oct. 15 and goes through the next day, in Providence Rhode Island, near Brown University. My reason for going is to hear great people: Clay Shirkey on social media, Richard Saul Wurman (originator of TED), Jacqueline Novogratz, founder of Acumen Fund, on social entrepreneurship, Bill Taylor, co-founder of Fast Company and many more people who get innovation and how to apply it to business and civic cultures.
Early registration to BIF goes to August 15.

Nussbaum is at the center of a global conversation on the growing discipline of innovation and the deepening field of design thinking. Read him to discover what social networking works—and what doesn’t. Discover where service innovation is going and how experience design is shaping up. Learn which schools are graduating the most creative talent and which consulting firms are the hottest. And get his take on what the smartest companies are doing in the U.S., Asia and Europe, far ahead of the pack.
