Wacom Presents: An evening with Nilofer Merchant

Join us on September 14 at 6pm, Nilofer Merchant, AKA the Jane Bond of innovation, will share her insights about bringing wild ideas to life at the Wacom Experience Center.

The first 100 attendees will receive a free copy of Nilofer’s new book, The Power of Onlyness: Make Your Wild Ideas Mighty Enough to Dent the World. In her book, Merchant reveals new ways of connecting our ideas to the world around us in an era when the potential to make a difference is no longer bound by social status.

The book is already receiving praise:
“For any would-be activists who hear the voice: ‘not me’ or ‘not now,’ Merchant makes the strong case for ‘yes you’ and ‘yes now’—and even shows you how to jump in.” —Van Jones, host of CNN’s The Messy Truth, author of Rebuild the Dream and The Green Collar Economy

Bring a friend who has a big idea and just needs a bit of inspiration to make it happen.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
“Nilofer Merchant is a master at turning seemingly “wild” ideas into new realities and showing the rest of us how we can too. She has done so through her books, her top ranked TED talk, and her accomplishments at Fortune 500 companies and startups. So much so that she was awarded the Future Thinker Award from Thinkers50, which ranks the world’s leading business thinkers and which also named her the #1 person most likely to influence the future of management in both theory and practice.” – http://nilofermerchant.com/
