Wayne State University to Host CEO of Menlo Innovations at TechTown, Nov. 14October 29, 2008
The Institute for Information Technology and Culture (IITC) at Wayne State University is hosting guest speaker Richard Sheridan, CEO of Menlo Innovations at TechTown.
The Institute for Information Technology and Culture (IITC) at WSU is pleased to present guest speaker Richard Sheridan, CEO of Menlo Innovations, on November 14 at 3 p.m. at TechTown. The event will be held in the NextEnergy auditorium. Sheridan is the third presenter in the series, "This is Dangerous Territory: Social Research Out of Bounds."
Sheridan will discuss Menlo's unique approach to software innovation using a compelling design practice that takes an anthropological approach. He will also share the effectiveness of an energized work environment created in the spirit of Edison's Menlo Park "Invention Factory."
Sheridan became the Forbes "Hire Yourself" cover story for all those choosing entrepreneurship over unemployment. The next year the story was a Wall Street Journal article on the unique office atmosphere Menlo uses for software design and development. Within six years, Menlo had become one of Inc. 500's fastest growing privately held firms in the United States.
The series, hosted by the Institute of Information Technology and Culture (IITC) at Wayne State University, consists of four presenters speaking on various applications ranging from design and marketing to communications and warfare.
The admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments will follow the presentation.
