The Innovation Leader Underground is a small roundtable series for selected senior executives working in innovation, strategy, and R&D. It’s all about helping you solve problems and move your initiatives forward.

By creating a confidential and off-the-record space, and facilitating highly-participatory conversations, we’re empowering executives to share recommendations, insights, and guidance with one another. Participants will be asked to contribute topics and challenges in advance of each meeting so the agenda is relevant to them.

Each session will include 8-12 attendees from non-competitive companies.

To join Innovation Leader at a future Underground meeting, please e-mail Innovation Leader’s Scott Cohen. Please note that these events are for innovation executives only; no consultants or vendors permitted. Innovation Leader individually confirms all attendees, ensuring participants are not directly competitive and can speak freely.
