Build Your Innovation Skills

We are living in an ever connected world where the only constant is change. Organizations and individuals need to innovate to stay ahead, yet there is a lack of understanding on how innovation can be increased. While there are actions an organization can take to promote innovation, there are also activities an individual can do to increase innovation.
    
This session focuses on what individuals in an organization can do to be one of the innovators.  Ms. Erdebil will explore:
              •    How you can create and increase a culture of innovation
              •    How you can establish and build skills to be innovative
              •    How you can develop inspiration and generate innovative solutions
              •    How you can sell innovation within your organization


Presenter:  Nilufer Erdebil

Nilufer has over 17 years of experience in innovation within various fields including telecommunications, application development, program management and IT management. Throughout her career she has always had a passion for technology, business, commercializing technology and navigating change. Having worked in a number of international organizations and lived on three continents, Nilufer has a global mindset.
   
Prior to launching Spring2 Innovation, Nilufer began her career working at Procter & Gamble, in sales, and moved into software engineering.  As a software designer she has worked on leading edge technologies and products, in a variety of international defense and telecommunications companies, including General Dynamics, CrossKeys Systems (now Oracle) and Marconi Wireless (now Ericsson).  After going back to school to earn an MBA, she has worked in a number of Technology, Project Management and Marketing positions at Bell Canada.
   
It was in Technology Development at Bell Canada while working in the Advanced Solutions Innovation Center that she truly began to understand and become passionate about that special mix of environment, people, partners, and insight that made innovation possible.

Nilufer is a 2014 recipient of the Ottawa Business Journal Forty Under 40 Award.  She has a B.Eng in Electrical Engineering and an MBA from Queen’s University.
