Opportunities Abound: The Circular Economy

This session will focus on the circular economy. In today's linear economy, taking, making and wasting resources is the norm. This extractive, disposable approach takes a toll on our well-being and the world. The circular economy is a model that encourages us to reduce on our reliance on virgin materials, keep using what's already in the marketplace and, ideally, never throw anything away. It's a business model that's climate-smart, regenerative and profitable. Join us as we discuss the region's challenges with waste, progress to date and a new vision for the future. You'll hear from two area business owners who are providing market-based solutions that convert trash to treasure: Rody Taylor with Summit Transfer operates a resource recovery park for construction and demolition debris, and Kalin Baca with Icorium Engineering Company is using innovative chemistry to boost the dismal 2% reclamation rate of refrigerants in the U.S. Together, we'll explore where other entrepreneurial solutions are still needed.

Unlocking Innovation: Building Cultures and Processes for Breakthrough Success

With all the talk of the need for innovation, we don’t talk enough about the “how” for companies and organizations to make this happen. Join us for a dynamic session on how to foster a culture of innovation and develop robust processes that drive breakthrough success. Learn about key attributes of innovative cultures, various types of organizational innovation, and practical steps to embed innovation into your company's DNA. Gain insights from an expert with extensive experience in nurturing innovation across diverse roles.

Experience it all while enjoying some vino from Jowler Creek Winery, Missouri's first green vineyard and winery, brought to you by the Ingenuity Session Series.
