A message from Sagesse:

Join us for five days in beautiful Kananaskis Country to be inspired, reflect on the past, assess the present, and plan for the future. You’ll join other leaders in a think tank environment, where you will work together to find solutions to the problems you are encountering.

The Innovation Outside the Lab Summit (IOL) will bring together leaders who embrace innovation and want to see it embedded in their organization’s culture and systems. Guided by New York University’s Dr. Nir Tsuk, you’ll engage in practical, hands-on learning, starting with the in-person summit at the Kananaskis Lodge (The Pomeroy) on October 24.

Speakers include Nimrod Hoofien, the head of engineering at Gusto and former director of people engineering at Facebook; Nicole Letourneau, research guru and University of Calgary professor and the most followed nurse on Twitter and; Jeff St. John, Founder and CEO of the Bluerock Project, a learning and transformation company creating tools, resources and experiences supporting social purpose leaders in developing complexity fitness, creative leadership and resilient cultures.
