Finding Your True North as Intrapreneurs (by Susan Foley)

Here's the latest article from Susan Foley of Corporate Entrepreneurs....

Article title:
Finding Your True North as Intrapreneurs

Opening excerpt:
We have been programmed from an early age to be this way, do it that way, use experience to guide us, rely on the word of others, prove every point, avoid conflict, embrace conformity and not veer too far off course. Now we are looking at a new way of being that is in conflict with these guiding principles. It is as if everything has been turned upside down and inside out. The old rules no longer apply in a rapidly changing and complex world. Everything we've known to be true is in question.

Attend Intrapreneurship Conference in London

Website: http://www.intrapreneurshipconference.com

Intrapreneurship, is that corporates trying to innovate like startups? Is that establishing an entrepreneurial culture? Or is is a name for what those few entrepreneurial corporate folks do inside big organizations?

We think it's all of the above . Moreover, it's relevant for any organization, regardless of size or sector, industry or history. Like Gary Stewart, director of Wayra, puts it – everyone is trying to be the next Apple, not the next Kodak.

But how do you do that?

Industry leading organizations like Philips, Ernst & Young, Deutsche Telekom, Airbus, Vodafone, Oracle, BBVA, Heineken, BNP Paribas, Grundfos, Accenture, Boehringer Ingelheim and Alcatel-Lucent have attended the Intrapreneurship Conference to get the best and next practicies for implementing and leveraging intrapreneurship.

Join them and many other peers for 2,5 days of learning and networking (27 – 29 May), in the vibrant city of London.

Last month, the National Tour Association hosted their annual Travel Exchange convention in the Crescent City. The convention proved to be a week full of fun in welcoming travel professionals throughout the country to our home town of New Orleans!

To kick things off, we wanted to welcome the NTA team with something special, so we put together a private dining event featuring a passed taster menu of Boudin Balls, Gumbo, Gator Bites, Jambalaya, Etouffee, and Mini po-boys, along with a New Orleans jazz band, and a private haunted walking tour from our friends at New Orleans Legendary Walking Tours, complete with thermoses and hand warmers to make sure everyone was warm. Our friends at Audubon Limousine then provided chauffeured service back to the restaurant after the tour.

It was a night chock-full of fun and one that our team will certainly never forget.

Many, many thanks to everyone at NTA for coming out to see us and for the heartfelt card we received today from their team.

A Benchmark for Social Intrapreneurs

The latest article from Susan Foley, President of Corporate Entrepreneurs.

Opening excerpt:
As the demand for social intrapreneurs increases organizations will be faced with identifying the right individuals for this position. It takes a unique combination of competencies to be effective and successful in this role.

It’s not just about what they do but who they are and how they behave that distinguish them from more traditional business leaders. There is spark inside them that is at the very core of who they are. They are excited about doing meaningful work. It’s what drives them, keeps them engaged and what attracts other people to them. They are authentic, resilient, empathic, savvy and self-aware.

How will you find the social intrapreneurs in your organization?

We aim to safeguard the intimate and focused nature of the conference, enabling attendees to really connect and authentically share about their challenges and results, so we will keep the number of seats low. Early bird tickets will be available soon at a very special rate.

For the London Edition, a number of partners have already confirmed to contribute and be your speakers and workshop leaders. Stay tuned for news on that. Should you want to present your intrapreneurship case, please feel free to pitch your idea to us.
