What role does culture play in innovation success? In this keynote, former banking executive and fintech expert Scarlett Sieber will address the foundational role culture plays in successfully implementing innovation at your institution. Innovation is powered (or held back) by people and it is crucial to get the right buy in and advocates organization wide. Throughout this presentation, Scarlett focuses on the human side of innovation, where ideas must flow in both directions, from the C-suite down, and from the boots on the ground up. She will also cover what innovation actually means, both in concept and in practice and how organizations can bring it about. She will profile several prominent, best in class companies that have innovation and culture at the foundation of all they do. This talk is filled with real-world examples that will help contextualize innovation concepts and act as stepping stones in making your innovation dreams a reality.
Scarlett Sieber is currently Managing Director, Chief Strategy & Innovation Officer at CCG Catalyst. She is an international speaker, former banking executive and fintech expert.
