㔨e presentation was unexpectedly productive. I found Babs, the speaker, very experienced and apparently well-informed on the topic at hand. Her initial promise was she would tell the truth, put up all the red flags, so that members of the audience would have an unembellished, frank view of the topic. It was worth my time, worth my trouble to get there.

Kudos to the organizers!䠼/span>

Topic:ࠔhe best ideas in the world come from宼/span>

America.ࠗhere innovation was king.ࠉn fashion, cars, electronics, architecture, TV shows, international trade, teamwork, and business leadership, America is runner-up.ࠆorty-one percent of U.S. patents have a foreign inventor or co-inventor listed.

ࠠ Babs Ryan, a global consumer trends forecaster and product developer who has traveled in 81 countries, says, "Americans are connecting with Nokia. Ninety-five percent of their wardrobe is made abroad.ࠁsia, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East are seizing the lead in innovation."

ࠠ This is good news for some Americans.ࠁre you one of them?ࠁre you in the right place at the right time to grasp the dragonⳠtail?ࠃan the U.S. regain its leadership position, and, if so, how can you be part of it?ࠒyan will show how we can 㣨ange䠴he world from our desks through international innovation.
