Innovation Boot Camp is a week-long “hands-on” intensive workshop for anyone who wants to be more creative, influential and impactful—and armed with breakthrough ideas. This leadership training is based on the FIRE framework for innovation developed by Phil McKinney, author, syndicated radio show host and CEO of CableLabs. Prior attendees have expressed their “JOY” for the all-virtual format, thanks to its efficiency of time, lack of travel requirement, its focused learning and its fun interactive workshops.
