The MHCC hosted it’s monthly Tercer Jueves Business Networking event at NextEnergy Center May 17th. The crowd was greeted by MHCC Staff Camilo Suero and Jorge Morales who spoke about our upcoming events and introduced our May featured MHCC member, Anita Quillen, President and CEO, Diversified Engineering and Plastics.
The MHCC delighted its members with two dynamic sessions with the main focus on innovation. Attendees participated in an ice breaker session presented by Disher consulting firm, showing the basis on how to spur innovation within your team. Also, Jeff Stout, Executive Director of Global Research, Technology and Mobility, Yanfeng, delivered an engaging and clear keynote presentation on how to adopt innovation in your workplace to ensure your business’ future survival.
Key quotes from Jeff’s presentation:
- Innovation is the relentless pursuit of: “There has to be a better way.”
- You may say, ‘I have to take care of today’s business while I’m trying to dabble in tomorrow’s business.’ If you just dabble in tomorrow’s business, someone else is going to jump full into tomorrow’s business, and they are going to beat you.”
- “If you’re only disciplined about doing what you’ve always done, innovation will never happen.”
