"Innovation" is simultaneously: (a) one of the most over-used and increasingly meaningless buzz-words in the business lexicon; and (b) one of the most important but least understood human capabilities upon which business success depends. This informal event will explore innovation in all its breadth, from the perspective of innovation in evolutionary biology (which is perhaps the most compelling example of innovation in the universe) to the perspective of innovation in human-created technology (which is one form of innovation of significant interest in the corporate world).
