3:00-3:30 Keynote Presentation: Gifford Pinchot III, CoFounder and President of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute

Gifford believes that entrepreneurship releases energy in the direction of deep personal values. Similarly, intrapreneurship is a tool for releasing the creativity, values and entrepreneurial spirit of people who work in large corporations. “When you free people from fear and bureaucratic restraint, they are likely to choose innovation projects that serve their deeper values,” says Gifford.

With the success of his books such as The Intelligent Organization and Intrapreneuring, Gifford has spent most of his career teaching intrapreneurship at large multinational companies (IBM, Shell, Ford, HP, Texas Instruments, DuPont, and others), government agencies, and non-profits.

Gifford has taught intrapreneuring and sustainability at Yale, Harvard, MIT, the University of Colorado, many of the universities in Washington state and over 20 other major universities.

Gifford was recently interviewed by Rainmakers TV to explain Intrapreneurship and sustainable business as taught at BGI:
