Peter joined our Networlding ThinkTank faculty almost a year ago and since then has been busy working with me. Drawing from his more than 25 years as an innovation consultant, strategist and interim executive, Peter will address a broad range of compelling topics concerned with the successful creation, management and commercialization of market-disrupting innovations. Prior to launching his independent executive consulting and advisory practice in 2000, Peter held senior practitioner and national practice management roles with top-tier consulting firms including Anderson Consulting, KPMG Strategic Services and CSC Index, culminating in his position as a vice president with Booz Allen & Hamilton. Peter is also an active speaker and panel moderator at industry conferences, serves on the boards of several not-for-profit organizations, and is the founder and executive director of the international Business Innovators Group, Netwon.
“I have known Peter Balbus for more than seven years after first meeting him at an MIT Enterprise Forum meeting where he was entertaining the audience as a featured speaker with his wit and style. Peter has always been one of the best keynote speakers at MITEF meetings and events over the years that I have attended. This year I invited him to speak at the Second International Business Innovation Conference and the Global PANIIT 2009 in October. At both conferences Peter’s presentations were very well received by the audience. Peter presents his conviction in the topic of innovation with a great knowledge of the subject, a disarming sense of humor, and an engaging and compelling delivery style.”
