Our Next Event:
Join us for our San Francisco Field Study, Feb. 28 - March 1, 2019. During the event, we'll explore San Francisco's vast innovation ecosystem, including tours of W.L. Gore's Innovation Center, Levi's Stadium, the Target Open House, and more. We'll also hear from leaders at Google Ventures, Airbnb, EmbraerX, and others, about how they scout emerging trends and technologies.
You won’t find the usual canned PowerPoint presentations, panel discussions, and trade show booths at our events.
Instead, we create useful and in-depth experiences that take you inside the most innovative spaces in the world to interact with the teams running those centers, and host informal, interactive whiteboard sessions that connect you with your peers to share best practices, compare approaches, and explore solutions to common challenges.
Whether you attend one of our Field Studies, our annual Impact conference, or our regional executive roundtables, or our new one-day Deep Dive events, you’ll benefit from the high-level information exchange and networking opportunities that are Innovation Leader hallmarks.

Innovation Leader Field Studies: Our Field Studies provide an engaging and collaborative forum for innovation executives, enabling them to visit other innovation spaces, share war stories, and benefit from the insight of their peers.
We’ve taken Field Study participants to dozens of innovation spaces at the world’s best-known brands, including Adobe, American Greetings, Autodesk, BMW, the Cleveland Clinic, CVS, Dow Jones, Fidelity, Ford, Google, Home Depot, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, LinkedIn, MasterCard, NASDAQ, Porsche, Starbucks, Twitter, Visa, Vodafone, and many others.
Innovation Leader Deep Dives, Roundtables & Executive Forums: Our shorter events — from a three-hour roundtable with peers to a full-day Deep Dive focusing on a single theme — still deliver incredibly high value to participants. Usually, we host them in corporate labs or startup spaces (not hotel boardrooms.)
We’ve run roundtables and Deep Dive gatherings at the CME Group, Johnson & Johnson, LinkedIn, MassChallenge, MasterCard, Royal Bank of Scotland, Starbucks, Verizon, Whirlpool, Work-Bench, and many others.
Innovation Leader's Impact Annual Conference: Impact is the only conference designed just for corporate innovators, to help them achieve more impact in their organizations and career.
Through interactive whiteboard sessions and workshops, attendees learn about metrics, governance, working with business units, as well as personal innovation, branding, and career development. Infused with peer-to-peer learning, skill-building, and interactive activities, our off-the-record sessions are for attendees' ears only. No slides, no panels, just real conversations with your peers at the world's largest companies.
