RISE! It's a New Design Day. Connect with professionals from the design and business communities at this inspirational breakfast keynote featuring the insights of nationally recognized thought leaders from within and beyond the design industry. Each year we seek to ignite interdisciplinary innovation and invite our guests to be inspired in their creative practice.
This year's keynote presented by David Burkus. David Burkus is a best-selling author, an award-winning podcaster, and management professor. In 2015, he was named one of the emerging thought leaders most likely to shape the future of business by Thinkers50, the world's most premier ranking of management thinkers. His latest book, Under New Management, challenges the traditional and widely accepted principles of business management and proves that they are outdated, outmoded, or simply don't work - and reveals what does. He is also the author of The Myths of Creativity: The Truth About How Innovative Companies and People Generate Great Ideas. When he's not speaking or writing, David is in the classroom. He is associate professor of management at Oral Roberts University, where he teaches courses on organizational behavior, creativity and innovation, and strategic leadership.
