Doug Hall to Provide Opening Keynote at Innovations Conference


The League for Innovation in the Community College announces that Doug Hall, founder and CEO of Eureka! Ranch, will provide the opening keynote address at its 2019 Innovations Conference. Hall has been named one of America’s top innovation experts by The Wall Street Journal and others. In his presentation, Hall will provide ideas and advice on how college teams can use the new field of academic study and leadership science known as Innovation Engineering to help find, filter, and fast track Big Ideas. The presentation is grounded in quantitative data and validated in real-world practice by tens of thousands of academic, nonprofit, and for-profit corporations around the world.

“For 40 years, Doug Hall has fostered innovation as an inclusive opportunity at all levels of an organization using a holistic, results-oriented approach,” said League President and CEO Rufus Glasper. “I am excited to hear his ideas about igniting innovation and cultivating employee empowerment at the community college.”
