TEDxBoston Adventure: Collaboration Paradox with John Abele, Founder of Boston Scientific (we have an inside connection!)

Wednesday, October 5, 2011 (All day)



Whitehead Institute, McGovern Auditorium, 9 Cambridge Center

Boston Scientific Founder John Abele—drawing from his 30+ years
experience at the intersection of science and industry—will discuss what
it takes to facilitate successful collaborations and why the most
productive collaborations often arise unexpectedly. Citing Whitehead
Institute’s Founder Jack Whitehead as an example, Abele will discuss the
key ingredients for accelerating the development of new technologies
and ideas through collaborative behavior, including leadership,
community building and harnessing the “wisdom of crowds.”
