“Creating an Innovative Culture at Google” 

Google has been identified multiple times as Fortune Magazine’s #1 Best Place to Work, and as the most powerful brand in the world.

Come learn how your organization can use the same unique Google principles to inspire employees.  Explore Google’s three guiding principles for innovation and learn how these principles can be relevant to your organization:

• ubiquity,

Over the past decade, Google has embedded innovation into everything they do. They have learned how to scale such practices to thousands of employees throughout their many locations. By providing their employees access to information and giving them the freedom to move quickly, Google has built a culture that allows and encourages every employee, team and office to be innovative.
