About the Program

Visit San Antonio and TSAE are excited to bring our Transforming Leaders Series back to the Austin area on Thursday, February 16, 2017, with speaker Andrew C. Boynton, Dean of the Boston College Carroll School of Management.

In this session based on his groundbreaking book, THE IDEA HUNTER: How to Find the Best Ideas and Make Them Happen, Dean Boynton will share the essential skills and tools of idea hunting and how ideas drive progress for individual leaders, high-performance teams and winning organizations. He will demonstrate how creating world-class “IDEA HUNTER” capabilities and culture in your organization will lead to:

  • High-performance leadership and teamwork
  • Effective change management
  • Strategy formation and implementation
  • Innovation, creativity and originality
  • Greater engagement and empowerment

The session is offered at no charge and has been approved by the Convention Industry Council for 2.5 CMP credit hours under the Strategic Planning domain. 

Following the session, we invite you to stay for lunch and the latest news from San Antonio.
