Professional Networking for Innovation and Creativity

December 10, 2019

Professional Networking for Innovation and Creativity

These days, everybody tells you that you need to be more innovative and creative. They also tell you that you need to network to get ahead in life and business. But you get no advice or bad advice on how to do both of these things effectively. This webinar will help you realize how you can be wise about building and maintaining professional social networks to help you discover and recombine novel ideas.

About Presenter:

Professor Exequiel (Zeke) Hernandez is the Max and Bernice Garchik Family Presidential Assistant Professor. He studies how firms strategically use formal and informal external relationships to internationalize, innovate, and enhance their performance. His research is motivated by a pervasive managerial challenge: firms do not own all the resources they need to be successful and thus have to reach beyond their organizational and national boundaries to get them. This leads firms to establish external relationships with collaborators and rivals, domestically and internationally. Zeke’s research explores how firms strategically access and manage these external relationships (i.e. their antecedents) and how such relationships affect globalization, innovation, and performance (i.e. their consequences).

Zeke is an award-winning teacher, recently recognized by Poets & Quants as a Best 40 Under 40 professor. He teaches the global strategy course in all of Wharton’s MBA programs (full-time, EMBA, and JDMBA) and trains executives from leading companies around the world. He has been recognized for teaching excellence by three different universities, most recently receiving the “Goes Above and Beyond the Call of Duty” (2018) and the Teaching Commitment and Curricular Innovation awards (2017) in the Wharton full-time MBA program.
