SXSW Interactive 2013
Tired of the constant stream of buzzwords and platitudes thrown around organizations in an attempt to create a sense of innovation and intrapreneurship? Do new ideas, bold endeavors, and a spirit of adventure sound more exciting than a corporate retreat to discuss upcoming performance metrics?

Hear from some of these thinkers about their thoughts on organizational culture change, the future of the Nation's space program, and discuss how you, too, can be a exploration trailblazer in your organization.
