The program of five one-day workshops addresses critical skills needed to execute and lead innovation efforts inside organizations from idea to profit. This interactive program helps participants address the psychological and practical challenges found within any corporate innovation process.

Each workshop may be taken as a stand-alone session. Participants who attend all five receive a 25 percent discount.

The Professional Innovator program is led by Dorian Simpson, founder of Planning Innovations and a product development and innovation expert. Simpson is the author of the upcoming book, The 30 Day Corporate Innovator: Key Strategies to Move Big Ideas through the Corporate Chaos, and he has helped boost the innovation activities and results of some of the world's most prominent companies such as GE, Freightliner, FEI, AT&T, Qwest and others. Simpson held key positions at Motorola and AT&T in product management, sales, marketing, business development and engineering. While at Motorola, he led the effort to launch the world's first 500-channel digital TV system. Simpson holds a BSEE from Northwestern University and an MBA from the University of San Diego.
