We are all ripe for disruption. Even the businesses that forecast trends are ripe for disruption.

On February 19, Valerie Jacobs will share the story of her year of self-disruption at Cintrifuse’s Cincinnati Innovation Network.

From setting up an innovation lab to experimenting with unexpected approaches, Val’s disruptive efforts inspired new “on-trend” behavior. During her presentation, she will challenge businesses and business leaders to do the same: allow themselves to be disrupted.

Join us next Thursday at 8 a.m. at the 21c Museum Hotel to hear Val share insights from her year of living in disruption.
