Member Testimonials
I am proud to say that I am a founding member of NBDN. The group began based upon the idea that innovation doesn't start and end with R&D. Our first organizational meeting was standing room only and ever since there has been no lack of agenda items or discussion topics. With the Global Recession and the current downsizing going on across industry, it is even more important that we make innovation quicker and less costly. I find the roundtable discussions and the specific topics on the agenda to be highly relevant.
