In this session, Bishop will address the ramifications of the new economy on health care delivery, how to create a big idea, and manage the expectations needed for patient-centered relationships. Founder and CEO of The Big Idea Company, an innovation and communications company based in Toronto, Canada, he has a keen ability to transcend current reality, frame it and make it useful to others. He also founded The New Economy Network, with chapters in Toronto, Edmonton, Hamilton, Vancouver, and Richmond, Virginia.

Bishop authored the book, The New Economy Thinker: The Complete Guide to Your Success in the New Economy, in which he discusses the repercussions of moving from command and control old factory production models to the new economy model, where customers demand tailored solutions and seek business agility.

We are proud to add the VCU Langston Center for Innovation in Quality and Safety, in partnership with VCU’s da Vinci Center and the Richmond Chapter of The New Economy Network, to his list of presentations, which have included the MIT Entrepreneur Program, MacKay CEO Forums, The Knowledge Bureau, and many others.
