Those who attend an Edison Event will benefit greatly from an increased understanding of Edison's innovation principles and practices. Thomas Edison is widely considered to be the most successful and effective innovator in history. Norwell's extensive research into the lives and practices of more than 125 other successful innovators has reaffirmed Edison's preeminence.
All sessions are designed using Immersion Learning principles. In the Immersion Learning activities participants are deeply immersed into the learning experience, and they remember what they learn for a much longer period than through traditional learning methods. Longer retention results in applying principles for a longer period of time. As a result, principles will more readily become established patterns of behavior.
Participants will become immersed in the Three Fundamental Levels of Innovation. They will also be introduced to the exciting concept of the Fourth Level of Innovation, a level rarely reached by individuals or organizations.
On a personal level, participants will be engaged in many activities to encourage them to develop their own innovative skills. Some of these include:
•Accommodations at the luxurious Pleasantdale Château.
•Carefully designed visits to Edison's home, workshop and factory
The Pleasentdale Château
