Tom Kelley, General Manager of IDEO and author of two best selling books on innovation, will be on campus to give a talk, “Young at Heart: How to Be an Innovator for Life." In addition, Tom will help us kick off this year's Global Innovation Tournament.
November 12, 4:30-6:00 PM
Free and open to the public
Make plans to participate in the Tournament. It is fast and fun, lasting only four days. Each team will be charged with creating as much value as possible using an everyday object. We will unveil the mystery object after Tom Kelley's talk. Teams produce a short video showing what they have done. Come with a team or form one after the launch event.
The first year of the Tournament, the mystery object was Post-it Notes, and last year it was rubber bands.... You can see last year's winners at: http://eweek.stanford.edu/2008/winners.html
Prizes include once-in-a-lifetime experiences, such as playing Deathball with Tim Draper or playing ice hockey with Guy Kawasaki. Winning submissions will be announced and showcased on Wed , Nov 19, from 4:30-6:00 in Kresge Auditorium.
