Chautauqua Institution - Chautauqua Amphitheater
Sparking a Culture of Creativity and Innovation

Dev Patnaik is the CEO of Jump Associates, a hybrid strategy firm focused on growth. Together with his teammates, he works with companies to create new businesses and reinvent existing ones. In recent years, Jump has become particularly well known for its pioneering culture, and was named by The Wall Street Journal as one of the best places to work in America.

New ideas and new ways of looking may provide the answers to challenges to U.S. competitiveness in business, education, government, and health care. In this week, our guests will reveal how they have created cultures of creativity that foster innovation. We’ll define “design thinking” and learn about collaborations that extend knowledge across disparate fields and add value to society, products and services. We will discover how creativity can be taught and learned, and how to inspire creative confidence in ourselves and others.

Chautauqua, according to the late, great Teddy Roosevelt, is "the most American thing in America." It's also the country's oldest ideas festival. Since its founding in 1874, Chautauqua has attracted the likes of Amelia Earhart, FDR and Susan B. Anthony. The rich tradition continues in 2011. Speakers include New York Times contributor Stanley Fish, groundbreaking religious commentator Karen Armstrong, leading foreign policy analyst Robin Wright, noted historian Gordon Wood and several others. Take advantage of this exclusive offer from FORA.tv and the Chautauqua Institution, and join the discussion as these important thought leaders address the most pressing issues facing America and the world.
