Saleema Vellani Selected to Give TEDx Talk: Innovation Starts With "I"
Saleema Vellani has been selected to give a TEDx Talk titled, "Innovation Starts With 'I'."
We need to redefine innovation—it's an overused word whose meaning has been diluted, yet having an innovative mindset is one of the most important 21st-century skills.
Innovation isn’t just about having the best ideas to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. Nor is it all about technology. It’s about being human. It’s about putting existing things together in new ways to create value.
Whether it's reframing our skills and experience to reinvent ourselves for a career transition, combining fragile and conflict-affected countries with hydroponics and insect farming, or "if you build it, they will come"—true innovation doesn't happen in meetings. Meetings only scratch the surface.
In order to delve into real innovation, we have to go deeper than free association, and if our task is to create a strategy that is both innovative and practical, we need to go even deeper.
Innovation starts with "I", with the individual and our mindset, happens with "we", through teams and communities, and has a ripple impact on the world.
Saleema will share her big idea and give a TEDx Talk on "Innovation Starts With 'I'" at Texas A&M University on March 29th, 2020.
