Creating a Culture of Innovation

Earlier this month, DuPage Children's Museum in conjunction with Choose DuPage presented "Creating a Culture of Innovation" at North Central College in downtown Naperville. This inspiring event featured keynote speaker Tom Kuczmarski, co-founder of the Chicago Innovation Awards, and an accomplished panel of local leaders in the field of innovation. 

There was a buzz in the air both prior to the presentation and at the following reception, as local business and community leaders met and talked about all of the ideas prompted by this unique event. DuPage Children's Museum is proud to be a community partner serving not only the youngest members of our population, but their adult counterparts as well!

Along with Mr. Kuczmarski, our panelists included:
• Dan Brown, Founder & President, Loggerhead Tools, Past Chicago Innovation Awards winner
• Bob Dutzi, Vice President & General Manager, Illinois Tool Works, Past Chicago Innovation Awards winner
• Richard S. Faron, President, Museum Explorer, Inc.
• Salvatore (Sam) Immordino Jr., Program Manager, Performance Surfaces & Materials Analysis Laboratories, USG Corporate Innovation Center, Past Chicago Innovation Awards winner
• Brian Krause, Vice President of Global Marketing &Communications, Molex, Past Chicago Innovation Awards winner
• Maria Wynne, CEO, Girl Scouts of Greater Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana, Past Chicago Innovation Awards winner
