Fall 2015 – Chicago, USA

ICON (IIP) Convention in Chicago was hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). This global convention was hosted in the City of Chicago and the UIUC campus. Our consultants visited and attended insightful talks hosted by industry leaders and innovators from Microsoft, AON, and Motorola.

The Microsoft visit was hosted by Chief Technology Officer Paul Edlund. His exciting demos of current and new Microsoft software and hardware gave the students insight into what Microsoft has in hold for the future.

At the Chicago 1871 Innovation Hub, we were fortunate to listen to Mr.Masaki Sato, the UN Chief of Human Resources, about what it takes to pursue a global career. Mr. Masaki Sato has, among other things, been coordinating 2,000 UN peacekeeping personnel at missions throughout the world in his role at the United Nations.
