School of Business students host Innovation Summit
To combat the misperception that Canada lags behind other world leaders when it comes to innovation, MBA students at Queen’s School of Business have organized the first ever Canadian Innovation Summit.
The summit brings together thought leaders on innovation and creativity from leading companies, institutions and think tanks across North America to discuss the best way to use innovation to create sustainable competitive advantages.
“Canada does have extensive innovative and creative capacity waiting to be tapped,” said Jameel Lalji, MBA’10 and Chair of the Innovation Summit. “We just need to do more to support and enhance it, and that is exactly where the Innovation Summit can help.”
The one day summit on Saturday, March 20 includes a series of keynotes, lectures, workshops and panels and will discuss topics such as The Concept of Innovation, Building Innovation Capacity, and Managing Innovation & Innovation Success Stories. Participants will learn how successful innovation can boost competitiveness, increase productivity, lower costs and increase benefits regardless of the size of the company or industry.
