David Gise connects dots. In Dave's world, these dots include everything from people to organizations to opportunities to ideas. For the first 18 years of his career, Dave connected people to healthy lifestyles as a personal trainer and managing partner in a health club. He then turned his attention to the tech world, where he connected new ideas to help solve new (and old) problems, launching four successful technology start-ups. From there, he connected his biggest dots yet – the Centre for Social Innovation in Toronto with his hometown of New York City (ask him to tell you the story if you see him, he loves telling it!). Dave now presides over the dots at CSI NYC as Managing Director, where he's committed to connecting nonprofits and social entrepreneurs to the supports they need to create lasting change. By the time Dave's done, there will be no more lonely dots - just a web of connections criss-crossing the world.

Creating A Culture Of Collaboration And Innovation In The Workplace: How To Create A “Frequency” That Inspires Innovation

David Gise

Creating a culture of collaboration and innovation does not happen by accident. This program is a conversation with Dave Gise who was tasked with creating community within one of the largest commercial buildings in NYC.

Dave will share his story of spearheading the development of one of the most collaborative workspaces in NYC for social entrepreneurs. You will learn about his strategy for creating a “heartbeat” and “frequency” within a massive building that is resulting in collaboration and innovation beyond its 4 walls. You will hear why corporate executives, global leaders and heads of universities are visiting Dave to learn how they can apply these strategies within their own respective institutions.

You will leave this session with practical next steps for creating a collaborative workplace that results in inspiration, community and ultimately, innovation.
