Last week was BIF-7, Business Innovation Factory’s 7th annual innovation conference, rightly billed as one of the top conferences to attend. It is hard to describe the power of a BIF conference; it needs to be experienced. It’s not just the storytellers sharing the amazing things they’ve done to impact and change systems, companies, communities and individual lives. It’s also the attendees doing amazing things to impact our world. Last year’s conference was summed up in a great quote by Carmen Medina in her story, “Optimism is the greatest form of rebellion.” At BIF-7, Angela Blanchard’s, “You can’t build on broken” took optimism the next step.
