2012 SMITH LEADERSHIP SYMPOSIUM:
ORGANIZATIONAL INNOVATION AND THE ENGAGEMENT EQUATION

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2012 | BALBOA PARK, SAN DIEGO


The 2012 Smith Leadership Symposium will inspire new ways of thinking about the business of arts, science, and cultural institutions. Chip Conley – Hotelier, best-selling author, and frequent TED Talk speaker – will kick off the day, followed by case studies of cultural institutions in organizational change, and breakout sessions that allow for deeper exploration of conference themes. At the end we’ll reconvene for a final panel on changing business models and philanthropy, and synthesize the day’s rich discussion.


Many thanks to the generous support for this event from the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership member institutions, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, Councilmember Todd Gloria, and the Smith Symposium Endowment at the San Diego Foundation.
