SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 27, 2012) - Spigit, the global leader in Social Innovation software, announced today that Michele McConomy, vice president of client innovation strategy, will be presenting at World Innovation Convention 2012 in Cannes on November 28 at 2:50 p.m. CET. She will also participate in an executive panel at the event on November 28 at 4:10 p.m. CET. The annual convention is aimed at c-level executives, managers, consultants and more that are interested in learning about emerging innovation trends from experts in the industry. Spigit's software allows organizations to embrace the creativity of employees, customers and partners to create ideas that drive growth and innovation.
McConomy will be presenting on the topic of "Teams Matter: Why Identifying the Right Teams is Critical to Innovation." Although social technology has enabled companies the power to share and collaborate like never before, concentration is often placed on the individual that contributes rather than the team. However, teams are critical to moving ideas forward and accelerating innovation. McConomy will discuss how participation, collaboration and activity can help companies identify and form the right teams to accelerate the development and eventual implementation of ideas to accelerate the innovation pipeline.
McConomy will also be joining an executive panel that will explore the role that innovation can play in changing the future. It will also address how companies can transform challenges into viable opportunities and generate value proposition. Other participants on the panel include Christian Rangen and Elisabeth Ovstebo, co-founders of Engage // Innovate, and Horst Wenck, corporate vice president for research at Beiersdorf Group.
World Innovation Convention will be held in Cannes, France from November 28-30 at the Hotel Majestic Barriere. For more information on World Innovation Convention, please visit http://www.winovc.com.
