“One Book, One College” Presentation — Dr. Eden S. Blair, Bradley University

Dr. Eden S. Blair, Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship at Bradley University, will be a featured speaker for ICC’s “One Book, One College” program.  This program will be held on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. in Room 212C/D of the ICC East Peoria Campus.  The title of her presentation is From Invention to Innovation:  Why a Great Idea Isn’t Enough.

Do ideas, by themselves, have any value?  Any idea is only the jumping-off point for great innovation.  Innovation comes from testing, tweaking, and pursuing the idea.  This presentation will look at how great innovators became known as geniuses.

Dr. Blair’s presentation is part of the 2019-2020 theme of “global innovation,” tied to the selected book, How We Got to Now by Steven Johnson.  Please come on November 19.
