Thank you so much for teaching from a place of spiritual connectedness, purposes, passion, and the pursuit of constant growth. I will always be grateful to you for allowing such a beautiful moment to unfold just as it was meant to. I look forward to learning more.

Making a Dent in the Universe

Thursday, June 17 (11 AM ET | 8 AM PT | 5 PM CET | 8.30 PM IST)
At the core of humanity lies the passion to create value, to work with others and make a positive difference in the world. But oftentimes, our ideas don’t have a fair shot at success, based on our credentials, status or the seat at the table. And yet, we are at a unique moment in history, empowered by the power of digital and social networks to spread our ideas and make our voices heard. Imagine then, how different our world would be if we could learn to harness our ideas in a way that not only moved others, but also got them to co-create the future with us and leave a lasting impact—shaped by our unique history, experiences, visions and hopes.

Join Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa in a conversation with Nilofer Merchant, an innovation expert and one of the world’s top-ranked business thinkers, live on Intersections on Thursday, June 17 (11 am ET | 8 am PT | 5 pm CET | 8.30 pm IST).

Nilofer Merchant has gone from being an administrative assistant, to division leader, to CEO of Rubicon, to board member of a NASDAQ-traded company along her 25-year career, gathering monikers such as the “Jane Bond of Innovation” along the way for her ability to guide organizations through seemingly impossible odds. Nilofer has personally launched over 100 products, netting $18B in sales. She helped launch the first Internet Server at Apple, grew division performance at Autodesk by 50 percent, and created product and pricing strategies for Adobe that grew the company from $2B to $5B.  

Today, Nilofer speaks and runs workshops on what creates new “advantage” and on the future of work—and has been invited to hundreds of leadership events by storied organizations, including Google, IBM, JP Morgan, Gartner, and Salesforce. Her TED talk ranks in the top 10% in the world. She is the author of 11 Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era and The Power of Onlyness: Make Your Wild Ideas Mighty Enough to Dent the World. Nilofer was named by Thinkers50 as the “#1 person most likely to influence the future of management in both theory and practice”; named “one of the twenty-five smartest women on Twitter” and is regularly quoted or published in Harvard Business Review, Financial Times, Time Magazine, Fast Company, and the WSJ.

Seemingly powerless people, fueled by their deepest—even sometimes unnamable—sense of meaning find those who share a cause or purpose and act together, without needing to be told what to do, to make a dent.”—Nilofer Merchant
