WEC's Opening General Session will bring the notion of connectivity full circle. Forty years ago, MPI started on the foundation of connections and authentic relationships before technology was used as a tool for everyday communication. During the opening General Session, Jonah Lehrer will discuss the undeniable power of being connected to others and how that affects our creativity and innovative abilities. He will focus on the need for human interaction and how authentic relationships create the possibility for new ideas. The underlying message of the OGS is that together, we can achieve more than we imagine; together, we do change the world.
WEC's Opening General Session will get to the heart of where good ideas come from and will reinforce how connectivity is a vital part of how we innovate. In the meetings and events industry, it’s our relationships with others combined with our ‘good ideas’ that impact those we serve and leave a lasting impact on the events we plan and the industry we're a part of.
