Session Description:

 As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, all organizations have an  opportunity, if not an obligation, to evaluate their programs, practices, and long held beliefs. Although there’s a lot of talk about the need to “bounce back”, our  organizations might be better served by focusing on how we “bounce forward.”  In this session, innovation consultants David Phillips and Kristy Teskey will share  actionable insights on how talent professionals at all levels can identify outdated  beliefs in order to rethink who they serve and how. 

Speaker Bio: David Phillips, Innovation Provocateur 

Equal parts educator, facilitator, and instigator, David has devoted his professional life to  helping people make things better. He founded Faster Glass in 2010 as a way to combine his  passion for sharing the principles of innovation and design, his impatience with blindly  accepting the status quo, and his love of meeting and learning from others. 

Prior to Faster Glass, David spent six years at Bank of America where he developed and led  programs focused on integrating the principles of innovation into a Six Sigma culture. He also  served as a subject matter expert “on loan” to China Construction Bank as they built their new  product innovation lab. Before his time in financial services, David served in a wide range of  roles in public accounting, public education, and the U.S. Air Force. 

Speaker Bio: Kristy Teskey, Innovation Catalyst 

As a perpetual big thinker, problem solver, and meaning-maker, Kristy takes sparks of ideas  and helps people and organizations bring them to life. She is an avid believer that great  organizations are ones that fully align values, people, strategy, and culture. Always an  educator at heart, she loves to facilitate and engage in knowledge sharing that never fails to  make all ideas stronger and better. Most of all, she strives every day to be an energy giver that  helps breathe new life into “this is the way we have always done it.”

Before joining Faster Glass, Kristy led the creation and collective planning process for the  statewide cross-sector education initiative, myFutureNC, served as the inaugural executive  director of the John M. Belk Endowment with a strategic vision toward systemic change in  postsecondary education and shaped the national education to workforce philanthropic  portfolio for The Bank of America Charitable Foundation. Kristy does not look at what she  does as only a “day job,” but also channels her leadership and strategic thinking know-hows  into her community board roles at Leadership North Carolina, YWCA of Central Carolinas, and  North Carolina State University’s School of Education Advisory Board.
