Charlie Hartwell is President of Ideas to Go, a leading Innovation Process Consulting firm which helps large organizations catalyze their dynamic thinking, and uncover new opportunities for their brands.
Sometimes even the greatest ideas go off course or become stalled. Charlie explains that it is the leader's role to take that situation and creatively reroute it, with the potential to make it even better than the original concept. Flexibility and resourcefulness are keys to making ideas happen.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
