Playing on the Fringes - Lessons in Disrupting the Status Quo


Is your business responding creatively to today’s economic landscape? To hold your own and effectively compete, your business must innovate or risk becoming irrelevant. That means breaking free from the old rules and exploring the “fringes”-- where pioneering ideas are born and revenue is generated.

Renowned innovation expert, Tamara Kleinberg, will teach you to stretch out of your comfort zone, tap into your imagination, and stimulate new ways of thinking. Sharing her method of “thinking sideways”, you will discover how to stand out in a sea of sameness.

You will leave with:

  • A deeper understanding of the expectations of the new economy
  • Lessons from people and businesses who push the boundaries
  • The top 10 tools to break free from old patterns of thinking
  • Ideas for a roadmap that takes you to the fringes for unique ideas

This event is made possible by a joint partnership between the BMA, the DU Marketing Roundtable, and the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS).
