“The BOF is not a sales event. It is a decidedly peer-to-peer conversation.Often those with the quietest voices will be saying the most interesting things. We would do well to listen. All of us here in one wayor another are tinkering with some fundamental forces of nature; Individual human creativity and a society’s need and resistanceto change…In a sense we are attempting to he “hackers” of the otherwise natural phenomenon of human invention. Much like primitive manonce struggled to harness forces beyond his control like: raging rivers, electricity, and flame to the benefit of all that would comeafter him.It is in this spirit that we come together. In an environment where the perspectives of anyone who shares these core values arewelcome.We gather as intellectually curious observers. Guided by the framework of science and experimentation; but not to the exclusion ofhunches, impressions and intuition. For much of the science in this field has yet to be written.Our focus is not self-interest, personal or corporate agendas, but explicitly “progress in the field of innovation”. In understandingit’s underlying structure, patterns and idiosyncrasies.While we will stay informed on the latest developments in academia, we approach the subject as practitioners in applying this newknowledge to real world situations.”Matt Greeley, Founder and CEO, Brightidea.comBOF Charterfacebook.com/brightideabof
