Conference Description:

Two days. Thirty storytellers. Over 400 innovators, troublemakers, entrepreneurs, inventors, and transformation artists.

This is the BIF Summit (AKA BIF-7), a national gathering of amazing people who are driven by their passion, creativity, and smarts to create value in entirely new ways. Believing in the power of stories to change the world, the BIF Summit is a storytelling jam, peppered with tales of personal discovery, innovation, and transformation -- from Daniel Pink to Umair Haque, from Mallika Chopra to John Hagel. At BIF-7, you will hear from, connect with, and be surrounded by artists, architects, and even an alpinist. You will find educators, entrepreneurs, and evangelists.

Now in its seventh year, the BIF Summit has earned it reputation as "one of the top 7 places to watch great minds in action" (according to Mashable). The summit provides participants with the space to be curious and crazy, get inspired, and collide with unusual collaborators. A shoe designer learns innovation processes from a car designer. (insert 2nd example) Last year, 400+ participants came from over 150 different companies; 80 percent were CEOs, presidents, founders, or senior leaders within their organizations. 20 percent will be. Many participants came as teams -- using the BIF magic to challenge norms, inspire creativity, and think across disciplines.
