Debra Amidon Launches Book at Bentley

November 7, 2002

WALTHAM, MASS. - International knowledge expert Debra M. Amidon will launch her newest book, "The Innovation SuperHighway," on Monday, November 11 at 7:00 p.m. in Bentley College's Wilder Pavilion.

Amidon will give a reading, accompanied by improvisational piano music by Boston College professor and Copley Marriott resident pianist Silvard.

According to Amidon, "The Innovation SuperHighway" has captured the imagination of industrial managers, academic leaders and government officials. A book said to bridge the digital divide, "The Innovation SuperHighway" is about people - the social and technical networks that shape the future. Contrary to the hype of information, technology and computers, Amidon says her book defines the human and humane agenda for all managers.

The founder of Entovation International, Amidon has been featured in "The International Book of Honor," "Woman of the Decade" and was a finalist for the Competitive Intelligence Champion of the Year. Her previous bestseller, "Innovation Strategy for the Knowledge Economy," has been translated into six languages.

After the reading, Amidon will sign copies of her book.

This event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Bentley College Model United Nations and the Distinguished Lecture Series.
