Why New Orleans is the ideal location for BEI

BEI is just around the corner. Get ready for the "how we get innovation done and measure it" annual celebration where you'll learn more about making innovation real than any other conference. And, it is in New Orleans this year, New Orleans!

Look for me, the furious blogger. I'd welcome an interview with you about how you help your organization successfully commercialize innovation and the hurdles you face.

Even better, I know some really cooking jazz clubs. New Orleans is the ideal location for BEI for a few reasons and giving birth to jazz is one.
Here are three, of many: 
1. The whole culture of New Orleans is a collaborative experiment.
2. The delicious food of the place is an outcome of the cultural collaboration.
3. Jazz music itself requires top players who play even better when they support one another--just like a strong team from various departments who have mastered their skill sets create something wholly new when innovating.

Come hungry. Come ready to learn. Come ready to experience one of the best cities in the world.
