“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower” – Steve Jobs
As senior leaders, we must be the initiators for innovation at our organizations. We set the culture and enable our employees to look for innovative solutions to move our organizations forward. As an organization, The Club is committed to innovating internally and externally and encourage our members to do the same.
There are ways for all industries to be innovative and find solutions that make a big impact. One perfect example of leading innovation is the pharmaceutical industry. With research and development soaring to new heights, the pharma industry is working hard to innovate new healthcare practices and develop innovative new drugs to offset high prescription costs. On October 25, 2017, The Club will welcome three world-class pharma executives as they discuss the future of pharma innovation.
As members of The Executives’ Club, you have the opportunity to grow and develop
personally and professionally and stay up-to-date with innovative practices. Our Innovation Forum, sponsored by KPMG, is a great place for members to share innovation trends and share best practices. In addition to discussing innovation topics, the group partners with The Club to host Innovation Programs throughout the season.
I would like to invite you to get involved: come to an Innovation Forum event, attend an innovation related program, or share your best practices and point-of-view on MY ECLink. Creating a culture focused on innovation will require an open mind and collaboration. We are here to partner with all of you, our members, on your innovation journey.
