Natalie Nixon Bio
With 37 years in the Aerospace industry, the Boeing Company executive Doug French has helped orchestrate great strides in innovation. French will inspire conference attendees with real-life innovation stories he’s encountered at Boeing, and draw meaningful parallels to how those experiences can be applied to the classroom and beyond. Innovation isn’t reserved for aerospace and other high tech industries; it can be embraced at every level across every sector in our society, and, contrary to belief, is something that is not elusive at all. It can be achieved by anyone with a passion to exceed. Our classrooms are the perfect fertile ground for innovative thinking and inspirational use of arts integration that will create the Boeing engineers of the future.
