Innotown 2014, an experience that challenges your usual mindset

Innotown 2014, an experience that challenges your usual mindset

InnoTown Conference was established in 2000, and is regarded as one of the Premier Business&innovation Conference in Europe. Every year InnoTown curates an acclaimed program of world-class speakers that is truly engaging for anyone with an international and innovative outlook.

InnoTown is more than a conference, it is something special. I have good memories from last year when I gave my contribution working as a volunteer with the InnoTown team and it was a fantastic, unusual, innovative and inspirational way to contribute.

This year I attended the conference as a guest and I shoot some photos during the event. I enjoyed a lot the speech of Shannon Deegan, Google's Director of Global Security Operations. I also had the chance to chat with him for a few minutes and share some thoughts.

I had the pleasure to attend the following talks:

  • THROUGH ROUGH WATERS: LESSONS ON LEADERSHIP FROM CAPTAIN PHILLIPS. RICHARD PHILLIPS, former Captain of the MV Maersk Alabama;
  • THE PATENT WIZARD. BRIAN KESSLER, Inventor and entrepreneur;
  • THE FUTURE NEEDS FIXING. JANE NÍ DHULCHAOINTIGH, Inventor and entrepreneur;
  • GET READY FOR THE URBANAUTS AND THE WILD KNOWLEDGE! DR. KJELL A. NORDSTRÖM, Top management thinker, Professor and author;
  • UNLOCKING THE SECRETS OF SILICON VALLEY. DEBORAH PERRY PISCIONE, Entrepreneur, national bestselling author and media commentator;
  • CREATING AN INNOVATIVE CULTURE AT GOOGLE. SHANNON DEEGAN, Director - Peoples Operations at Google 2007 - 2013. Now Google´s Director of Global Security Operations;
  • NEW WAYS OF WORKING IN THE POST-KNOWLEDGE ERA. JULIAN BIRKINSHAW, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School;
  • FUELLING GROWTH WITH INNOVATIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE. DENNIS SNOW, 20 year veteran of The Walt Disney Company. President at Snow & Associates Inc.;
  • THINK LIKE A FREAK. STEPHEN DUBNER, award winning author, jounalist and TV personality.

The moderator was PELLEGRINO RICCARDI, Cross-Cultural Expert. Enjoy all the photos :)
