Description

About Our 2009 Forum
Our Eighth Annual Forum, themed ...OurSpace - Bringing Progress In2 View, continues to expand "thinking about thinking," raising the consciousness of better thinking in individuals and organizations. In addition, we are partnering with Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne's Canoga Park site to offer 2 days of pre-conference seminars and workshops and 2 days of post-conference seminars. Add to this schedule a weekend conference at the nearby Hilton Woodland Hills and the result is our 6-day Forum.

As designed, our 2009 Forum aims to promote an environment where compelling ideas and insights will evolve from an exposure to new thoughts, and InThinking colleagues. (And these ideas and insights may lead you in untold exciting directions in your work and life after the Forum.)

Should You Attend?
Anyone interested in improving the effectiveness of individuals and or­ganizations will gain a deeper appreciation of leadership from this Forum. Past attendees reflect a wide variation in backgrounds - which is always a highlight of our event - and as such we have confidence that our program will continue to be valuable to anyone interested in "better thinking about thinking." If you, however, would like to get a "running start" on InThinking and other associated ideas, please inquire with Bill Bellows about attending an "Enterprise Thinking" seminar offered throughout the year at a variety of locations across the U.S.

Where Will We Be?
The Forum will take place in Los Angeles, California, USA, in the Canoga Park/Woodland Hills area of the San Fernando Valley. Pre-conference activities (seminars and workshops) will take place on Thursday, April 23rd, and Friday, April 24th at United Technologies' Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne's offices at 6633 Canoga Avenue in Canoga Park (view the map). Conference activities will begin on Friday afternoon at 4:00pm and extend through Sunday at 12:00pm – all to be held at the nearby Hilton Woodland Hills at 6360 Canoga Avenue, Woodland Hills (view the map). The hotel is an easy walk from the Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne site, where Forum attendees are welcome to park for free. The post-conference seminars on Monday, April 27th, and Tuesday, April 28th will be held nearby at the California State University Northridge campus in Northridge at 18111 Nordhoff Street (view the map) in the San Fernando Valley.
