Join us for February's “Take 3 Business Breakfast" led by Fabienne Jacquet, Founder & CEO of INNOVEVE, LLC, where the topic of Innovation and Emotional Connection with Consumers will be discussed.
Fabienne is a seasoned strategic executive … a disruptive innovator with unusual two-pronged experience in technology and marketing. She has extensive international experience with a passion for supporting companies in their human-centered innovation efforts. Fabienne’s unique background gives her the capability to connect technology with business and to translate their respective needs. Her problem-solving attitude is grounded in deep knowledge of successful business strategies.
Fabienne will explore how:
- The female economy represents $20 trillion, but women still feel vastly underserved
- Most innovative solutions don't emotionally resonate with consumers, especially women
- Current innovation efforts mostly result in incremental innovation, as innovators predominantly work with masculine skills
She'll provide 3 Takeaways that will be revealed at the Breakfast.
