Wednesday Keynote

Cultivating Curiosity: The Key to Unlocking Innovative Solutions to Complex Problems
Time: 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. CT
Location: McCormick Place S100 Ballroom

How curious are you? When it comes to solving problems, how often do you challenge your own thinking? Do you follow the same process every time?

When solving problems, we often jump to solutions so quickly that we miss the mark because we haven't taken the time to find and solve the "right" problem. Flexing our curiosity muscle helps us view complex problems from multiple perspectives, leading us to new and exciting solutions.

Join us for an interactive session where you will learn six curiosity mindsets and how they can shift your thinking to help you uncover the obvious or see something new. If you're willing to activate your curiosity, you can test your new skills with our immersive, hands-on IFT FIRST Innovation Lab taking place immediately following the session!
