All of us have the potential to be innovators and entrepreneurs, but how can we turn our creative ideas into reality?
For an evening of inspirational insights on this theme, IMD is honored to welcome Sahar Hashemi, founder Coffee Republic & pioneering entrepreneur, on May 27, 2014.
Howard Yu, Professor of Strategic Management and Innovation at IMD, will describe the journey to ignite creativity and innovation on a global level. Based on his extensive experience of strategic transformation and change management, he will share his views on how big companies can become factories of innovation.
Building on Professor Yu’s presentation, Sahar Hashemi will share her personal journey and discuss her concept of The Switched On Mindset. She will outline the habits that are the cornerstones of Switched On and that encourage a ‘can do’ spirit to make things happen.
Sahar Hashemi co-founded Coffee Republic, the UK’s first US-style coffee bar chain, and built it into one of UK’s most recognized high street brands. As well as being a highly sought after keynote speaker, she frequently appears on lists of leading thinkers and entrepreneurs.
