David Robertson, MIT Sloan School of Management’s senior lecturer and innovation icon will keynote this year’s Restaurant Innovation Summit, Nov. 5-6, Cleveland, Ohio.

It’s not enough to hear about the innovations happening around us in the restaurant industry; what companies really need is to learn how to innovate. That’s the focus of the Restaurant Innovation Summit, November 5-6, at Tenk West Bank, Cleveland, Ohio.

The conference already sets aside a half-day workshop on design thinking, headed by ExperienceInnovation™, in collaboration with IDEO (a leading design thinking consultancy).

Now, the Association has secured David Robertson as the keynote for this exceptional event.

Robertson, senior lecturer at MIT Sloan School of Management (where he earned his PhD), is a former professor of practice at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and author of The Power of Little Ideas (Harvard Business Review Press, 2017), among others. He’s taught innovation and product development in undergraduate, MBA, and executive education programs at a variety of leading academic institutions. From 2002 through 2010, Robertson was the LEGO professor of innovation and technology management at Switzerland’s Institute for Management Development when it was ranked as the leading executive education program in the world by The Financial Times
