    CLOSING KEYNOTE: The Innovator’s DNA

    Location: Grand Ballroom

    Jeff Hurt – Chief Epiphany Officer, Empowered Epiphanies

    Innovation. It’s the heartbeat of today’s economy. It’s also where you as a leader need to focus your attention, time, and resources to compete in today’s marketplace. So how do we become more innovative?

    Is innovation a talent from birth or something that can be learned and acquired? Good news…you can be more innovative and creative. You can change your behaviors and adopt critical innovative strategies.

    What are the traits of today’s innovative professionals? How do they think and behave? Why don’t they let traditional rules and the status quo stand in the way of their vision? What questions do they constantly use to benchmark their thinking? What are the skills needed for innovative thinking and behaviors?

    Innovators think and act differently. They don’t follow the status quo. Let’s talk about it.

    VENUE/LODGING: The Elevate AEC Conference & Awards Gala will be taking place at the Denver Hilton City Center Hotel. 
    Hotel reservations for Elevate 2020 at the conference rate of $239/night.
