This year’s keynote address, “The Importance of Creativity and Innovation in Business”, will be given by Andrea Palm-Porter, Executive Director of Roaring Fork Leadership.  Intrapreneurship is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur while working within a large organization. Entrepreneurship is the process of designing, launching and running a new business.

Regardless of which you are, you can choose to continue with the status quo, or choose to make a difference in the lives of others – within your own or someone else’s company.  Who wants to feel empowered and recognized for their innovative and creative ideas? Who wants to make a difference? If you answered yes to these questions, then this keynote will help you become energized, find your creative power, and ready to push your ideas forward.

The B2B Expo and Business After Hours (BAH) will follow the keynote address from 5-7 p.m. and is open to event attendees, chamber members and their guests.
