TEDx Talk: The Impact of Civic Collaboration
Video The Impact of Civic Collaboration: Ed Morrison at TEDx Rockford
Ed Morrison is the Economic Policy Advisor at the Center for Regional Development at Purdue University. For over twenty years, he has conducted strategy projects with economic and workforce developers in the U.S. His work emphasizes the strategic value of focused regional collaborations and open innovation, network-based models in today's global economy. Ed developed a new discipline called Strategic Doing to accelerate these collaborations that is now widely used across the US.
Ed's colleague at Purdue, Scott Hutcheson, will be leading Strategic Doing Sessions as part of the newly launched Trenton Business Innovation Project. Check out these and other programs taking place during the 2016 Trenton Business Week at: http://trentonbusinessweek.com/pages/event_schedule.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
