TEDxWaterloo - Karen Morris - Cloudmaking, Curiosity and Love

In Karen Morris' own words, she has been "a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king. Mix and match them at your discretion to my life-phases, teenage wordsmith, lover, international lawyer, executive, friend, investor, mother and survivor."Yet the woman described in her C.V. is that of a scholar, English barrister, M.A., L.L.M, Professor, Chief Innovation Officer of a global corporation, General Counsel, innovation architect and writer. Her broad experience and international background in law, management and multinational business inspire her insight on product, service and business model innovation. She is a frequent speaker on the topics of innovation and leadership at global forums and conferences around the world.She is also an adjunct professor at Fordham University in New York, teaching Innovation as part of the MBA program. She is on the Advisory Board of The Howe School of Business at The Stevens Institute of Technology and is a co-founder and director of The Global Sourcing Council, a not-for-profit committed to economic and sustainable best practice in the domain of global sourcing. But if you were to chat her up in an airport bar waiting for a delayed flight, she just might mention that in the curious race called corporate life, she has "seen people get their kicks stomping on a dream, including their own... people leave themselves - their whole selves - outside the office door." She will also tell you that she is curious about why, and convinced there is a 'how' to change it.----In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
