With a real fire–in–the–belly for improved creativity and ethical innovation skills in the world, Natalie is always looking for better ways to move the desire for innovation from aspiration to actuality. She share's this passion to make a difference in a book Demystifying Innovation Culture Efforts (co-authored with Bob Eckert). Natalie is driven by her desire to find creative ways to energize the small flame that is the beginning of an intentional innovation effort to the roaring bonfire that energizes and sustains itself for a large group of stakeholders. In her free time she enjoys spending time with family and friends at the lake, fishing, hiking and telling stories around campfires that are “just the right size”.
