We are delighted to announce this year’s MIX Mashup: three days of the most progressive thinkers, disruptive ideas, and powerful practices making our organizations fit for the future—and fit for human beings.
This year, the MIX Mashup will be held in New York City on November 18-20, 2014.
The MIX Mashup gathers the vanguard of management innovators—pioneering leaders, productive rebels, courageous experimenters, and agenda-setting thinkers from every realm of endeavor. The event is designed to showcase advanced thinking and ambitious experiments—and to inspire, equip, and connect aspiring management innovators in the collective project of reinventing management for a new age.

The first and most important truth any leader must understand is that the human beings who work inside every kind of organization possess unlimited potential. They have the ability to solve any problem and the adaptability to respond to unforeseen circumstances. It may be the most overworked truism in the business world, but employees are indeed the most valuable resource and asset that any company has.
