Supernova Wharton SF Mixer
Date: 8/11/09 – 5:30 pm
Location: Wharton SF Campus, 101 Howard Street 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA
Mix it up with John Hagel and John Seely Brown at Wharton Ι SF, on August 11th 2009. We’re delighted to launch our first 2009 Supernova Mixer event at Wharton Ι SF Campus on Tuesday, August 11, 5:30pm – 7:30pm. Please join us for a lively conversation with Deloitte’s John Hagel and John Seely Brown (Center for the Edge) on The Shift Index — a major new effort to track the real impacts of what we call the Network Age.
In their initial report, they address why :
∙ most companies fail to harness “Real Time Web” connected knowledge flows for competitive advantage
∙ Return on Assets of US firms is falling even as productivity increases
∙ the gap between winners and losers in business keeps growing
∙ and, big companies are losing their leadership positions faster than ever.
The event will take place at Wharton’s San Francisco campus, one of the venues where we also host the Supernova Conference. The venue offers an intimate classroom-style setting, perfectly suited to lots of discussion and interactivity. Our mixers are designed to introduce you to members of the Supernova and Wharton extended community as well as the types of topics we will be addressing at the larger Conference being held December 1-3, 2009.
Agenda: we’ll start to assemble at 5:30 on the 5th floor of the Wharton SF building. You will need to sign in at registration — we’ll then begin the discussion on The Shift Index at approximately 6:00pm. Afterwards, you are invited to stay and mingle with the speakers and guests for some informal networking until 7:30-ish. We don’t have a hard stop, so please stay as long as the conversation continues. Dress is business casual.
