Innovation Expert Doug Berger Joins Rochester Manufacturing Innovators For June 9th Program

For New York Photonics Member CEOs and Presidents

We are pleased to collaborate with another education organization here in Rochester to make you aware of an interesting seminar– The Growth Challenge: How Innovation can Close your Growth Gap, to be held on Tuesday, June 09, 2015, 7:30 am at Oak Hill Country Club.

One of the top issues that challenge “C” Level executives today is the SPEED of DISRUPTION in their industry, and the potential impact on the sustainability and growth of their organization. In this DR CEO SIG Seminar, we are pleased to highlight a world class author and speaker on Innovation – Doug Berger, along with a panel of Upstate NY CEOs who have been recognized for their exceptional record of Innovation in the companies they run.   Our guest panel of CEO’s  include, Bob Bechtold of Harbec Plastics, Mike Mandina of Optimax Systems and Bill Pollock of Optimation/Kingsbury.

In this session, C-level executives will learn about ways companies are innovating across all functions and processes to drive growth in traditional markets and to build new revenue streams.  Mr. Berger’s  4-Step Innovation Process encourages you to take a step away from your historic track record and then adopt an outsider-in viewpoint, in order to identify those growth drivers for future business. Learn from his experiences and practical advice, from a diverse background of industries and walk away with actionable steps to improve your company “IQ” – Innovation Quotient.

This CEO series is offered at a reduced rate of $20.00 for NY Photonics member Presidents, CEOs and Owners of businesses. These events are intended as peer networking for business leaders, not sales networking opportunities.

As his commitment to giving back to the community and to NY Photonics and Digital Rochester, Mr. Berger has also offered to meet with CEO’s on a one on one basis at their place of business following the seminar to “continue the conversation”. There will only be 3 slots available in the afternoon so please let us know if you are interested in meeting with Mr. Berger the afternoon of June 9th.
