Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomes TakeOver Innovation Conference!!! Check it out and follow us on Twitter!


So far, we’ve heard TribalScale’s Kirstine Stewart, Roger Chabra, and Sheetal Jaitly introduce and welcome the +1500 audience to TakeOver.

This morning is about the keys to innovation — the innovation DNA, the mindset, the how-to’s, and the timing. Innovation is more than adopting the latest and greatest technology. It’s about connecting people. People need to move forward for innovation. Innovation is a fundamentally human trait.


Jessica Hatch, COO of Sell Side Trading at Bloomberg LP, and Joe Jackman, the CEO of Jackman Reinvents shared killer points in their keynote talks. Here are a couple takeaways:

  • The time is now to innovate.
  • Innovation is a competitive requirement.
  • Be in love with solving the problem, not the solution.
  • Get your house in order, build a solid foundation, know what you’re doing and why.
  • Either choose to disrupt, or be willing to be disrupted.
  • The risk of change is really the same risk as standing still.
  • Innovation for innovation’s sake is not very smart.
  • Generating human insight is a prerequisite to innovation.
  • Collaboration is the secret sauce.
  • Seek insights everywhere.
  • Embrace uncertainty.
