Progressive Companies that Drive Innovation

Oct 30

Charlotte Campus

Innovation is inspired by a need to transform or change the way we do things. It’s why companies develop new products or aim to update an old process. To achieve these goals and more, businesses are creating innovation centers–a space for reinventing themselves, to test ideas, and stay at the leading edge.

On November 21, leaders from Duke Energy, EY, and Northeastern, explored the advantages of Innovation Centers, both locally and abroad, including the impact of AI and digital transformation on innovation. They further advised how companies use innovation as a driver for every aspect of the workplace, including talent acquisition, productivity, R&D, and retention.

Panelists included:

  • Richard Donaldson, Managing Director of Digital Transformation, Duke Energy
  • Bermon Painter, Director of Innovation & Strategy, EY wavespace™
  • Jody Porter, Director of Nuclear Organizational & Leadership Development, Duke Energy
  • Dr. Raj Echambadi, Dunton Family Dean, D’Amore-McKim School of Business, Northeastern University
