If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you should take advantage of our talk by Distinguished Lecturer Leslie Martinich.  Companies and organizations around the world have asked her to work with them to deliver innovations, and she will be giving a public --- and FREE ---- talk here in Austin on July 18. 

Join us for this fast-paced talk, and learn the behaviors that will lead to greater success in delivering innovative products.


PLUS: We take on a project of mentoring young women, high school juniors, interested in careers in engineering and technology.  

Would you like to participate?  The young women will be documenting their projects with videos and an article written for publication.  

How can you help:

1.  The girls will be creating both short and longer videos to document the project.  Your video creation and editing experience will be very helpful!

2.  The girls will be writing a short article to publish about their experience.  Your writing and editing skills for publication will be useful!

3. The girls are primarily interested in

         A.  biomedical engineering 

         B.  Using a bacterium, Ideonella sakaiensis, to breakdown and recycle PET plastics in the ocean

     Your knowledge of creating a proof-of-concept project will be very useful.

How to Leverage the Full Potential of your Teams and Out-Innovate the Competition

Leading stellar engineers is not the same as leading ordinary engineers.  Learn the differences, and learn how to lead your team to produce brilliant results.

Leaders have the opportunity to work with some very talented employees.  And some of those talented employees might be prima donnas.  How can you lead teams with highly gifted people to deliver game-changing results (or even just plain awesome results)?

In this fast-paced talk, you'll learn why "the difference between not-so-great leaders and great leaders is the ability to manage stars."  And you'll get some tips on just how to do that!


Leslie Martinich is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer who works with leaders around the globe who want to improve their ability to deliver innovative products.
