Message from the Program Committee Co-Chairs

3 + 2 = Innovation!

Our 2013 OD Network Conference in San Jose is adding up to more than just the math.  We are excited to announce our three keynote speakers, plus two featured speakers, all adding up to Innovation in just three days.


We have a great lineup of three keynotes:
  • Bob Keegan, the Harvard psychologist doing today's best work on adult development and learning, the necessity of ongoing psychological transformation in adulthood, the fit between adult capacities and the hidden demands of modern life, and the implications for adult learning.

  • Vernā Myers, the nationally recognized expert on diversity and inclusion, a published author, and sponsor of her own annual Opus Conference on Race and Ethnicity in organizations. Vernā helps transform diversity from an elusive goal into a real, positive, invigorating fact of life - a feature that inspires new thinking, attracts new talent, opens the door to new business, and most of all, innovation. 

  • Susan Foley, author of the book Entrepreneurs Inside: Accelerating Business Growth with Corporate Entrepreneurs, who will share her experiences from 25 years of helping organizations build the entrepreneurial competencies needed for success. 
Featured Speakers:

As if that's not enough, we also have special sessions with our two featured speakers, both of whom are longtime members and supporters of OD Network:
  • Ed Schein, one of the field's original and foundational thinkers and writers on career anchors, process consultation, organizational culture, and his newest thinking on the dynamics of helping. 

  • David Sibbet, a master facilitator, process consultant, and pioneer of visual facilitation, specializing in large-scale processes, strategic visioning and creative, future-oriented symposia. 
Pre-Conference Sessions:

In addition to 3 keynoters and 2 featured speakers, we are adding even more… There will be deep-dive, intensive pre-conference workshops for specific skill building, dozens of concurrent sessions, special interest group meetings, our annual Awards Ceremony, plenaries, breakout groups, and the perennial favorite, the Dick Beckhard Mentoring Session.

We look forward to seeing you there!
