I’m so happy to announce that I have been asked to speak at the Principia Public Affairs Conference on March 24 through the 26th. This conference will focus on innovation, so I’ll be sharing stories about how we approached innovation include in companies like the ones I’ve worked for like LEGO and Miracle-Gro.
Here’s the description about the talk that I will give.
An Innovation Mindset: Do You Have What It Takes?
In today’s day and age, innovation is not about some once-in-a-lifetime “Eureka!” moment. It’s about having the right mindset to foster innovation, actively nurturing creativity , embracing both failure and success as progress, taking advantage of trends and putting ideas in to action quickly. Everyone can be an innovator; it just takes the right mindset.
Join a discussion about where innovation comes from and what is an innovation mindset, both in an individual and an organization. Rahna will share personal examples of product development and innovation from the toy industry, lawn & garden, industrial manufacturing and oil & gas–to inspire attendees about how to develop an innovation mindset in themselves and others.

I’ve written some blogs about these ideas, so if you’ve read my blog recently, you may recognize a few of the posts I’ve already shared on this topic:
I’m excited to give this talk because I have found that when you have to present something, you always learn from it, so I’m sure that as I reflect on processes and innovations that we’ve approached in the various companies that I’ve worked for, I’ll get new insights into the process of innovation.
I’ll be sure to share them with you here on this blog over the next coming weeks.
