Hap Klopp - Leading Innovative Teams: Cracking the Code of Success
Thursday, September 3 2015, 17:00 BST

Why do some of the greatest innovations never get past two people in a garage? What is the secret to breakthrough innovation?

Why is it that some teams click and perform flawlessly and others never get off the ground? How do we build aligned leadership teams and cultures that can execute faster as the world of technology change is only increasing?

Hap Klopp has spent the last fifteen years investing, managing, and developing many different types of companies from nano-particles to data visualization to organic skin-care products, and he has seen what works, what doesn’t, and how to recognize the difference.

In this episode of Profiles in Leadership, we go behind the scenes with Hap Klopp, founder and former CEO of The North Face and serial entrepreneur.
Nilofer Merchant - Onlyness: Make Your Ideas Powerful Enough to Dent the World
Wednesday, September 16 2015, 14:00 BST and 17:00 BST

We all want to make a dent in the world.

Perhaps big dents like clean water for everyone in the world, or to address patriarchy so women are treated equally, or reforming education to be relevant for the 21st century. Perhaps ‘small’ dents, such as helping your city be healthier, or keeping kids in your city safe. But, not all of us feel like we can make a difference. In truth, that feeling has great validity. It used to be that to make a dent, you had to already be powerful. You got things done because of the authority granted by your organisation, or rank, and more than likely, money. You had to already ‘be someone’ to get things done. But, no more.

Today, denting the world is becoming something anyone of us can do, even on a few hours a week. Well, that’s true but ONLY if you know how. While tech platforms get all the press, they are just the mechanisms.

Learn from real-life inspiring stories of seemingly-powerless people making a dent, and a difference. Be inspired by them. Learn from them. And, maybe even become one just like them.
