The highlight of the year - BIF. It's the embodiment of my definition of innovation ~ the Network + Serendipity - through Random Collisions of Unusual Suspects (#RCUS). It's the place to renew your mind and soul - to see what can and is being done to positively change our world by people of all ages, ethnicities, experiences, industries, sectors, geographies. This will be my 6th BIF and every year I think it can't get any better... and every year it does. Why? Because the human desire, passion and spirit to do good is everlasting. Despite the misery and pain we see in the world around us, there is always hope - hope being realized by action. That's why I can't miss a BIF - it renews your hope in mankind.
