2010 Ideas Festival, Nov 24-26, 2010

I will be attending the 2010 Ideas Festival in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick November 24th to 26th. I’ve been asked by the folks at Public Policy Forum to present a 5 minute talk on what keeps me up at night. I want to talk about the problem of bridging the industrial to the network age, which may be too much to chew in 5 minutes, but we’ll see what I can do to drop a couple of idea bombs into the mix.

More on the Ideas Festival:

Our communities and region are changing.  Our population is aging, the economy is slowly recovering, innovation is the main driver of economic growth, the war for talent intensifies, values are evolving and technology rapidly shifts.  The convergence of these effects demands knowledge, innovation and leadership that enables our organizations and communities to thrive in the 21st Century.

The 21inc Ideas Festival is the premier opportunity for business and government leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, artists and change-makers in Atlantic Canada and across the country to engage with the people and ideas shaping our world.
