If you have ever had any interest at all in pursuing a patent or a concept, feel free to come join us. You may make a new friend...likely one who thinks outside the box like you do. We encourage you to attend all the meetings you can, because that is where all the connections and friendships are made. 

Where North Florida's Inventors and Innovators Come together.  NFIIG.com. North Florida Inventors/Innovators Social Group.

We hope you can join us Wednesday March 25th 2015 at 12 noon at Carrabba's Italian Grill at 8406 Blanding Blvd. Jacksonville Florida. Please RSVP to let us know you will be attending. There is no cost to attend but since Carrabbas does not charge us for the room, they do ask that all who attend purchase lunch.

Letting Go of the Past, So you can move forward-- Paid to Think

James Kies, Founder of StageTally, is a battle hardened Agility Consultant who has a gift for helping companies improve quality, morale and profits. When James is not adding value to development teams or writing software himself he serves as a transformational leadership coach helping businesses with their scrum adoptions. (Yes he is a Rugby Guy.)

James serves on the Presidents Advisory Counsel to the John C. Maxwell Team, is studying under Les Brown and is an avid Inventor, Edutainer and Father of 5 amazing children.

Join us Wednesday March 25th as James presents from his "A Better Way" series of talks and training's on operating a business in this new world. In this series James explores key shifts and changes in our world that have us at this reset moment. He will share from his 7 key strategies on how we can invite our current adult selves back to the table of teamwork, to let-go of how we have been taught in the past.  He reveals how we have been paid to follow-directions and encourages us to move forward ...Paid to Think.  
James will also be showing and demo'ing to us his software LiveVotingapp.com . Be sure to bring your cell phones or tablets to see a demonstration of the live group voting that he's developed...with no downloads necessary.
James' presentation will be a follow up along the lines of his Ted Talk he recently gave. It would make sense to watch it here if you can before you attend.  


Join James and the rest of us as we look at this fresh new world with child like wonderment... and decide today how we want to move forward in response to these new discoveries.

We hope you can come by and see and support all of our fellow Inventors.Innovators at OneSpark this year. 
At this point the Inventors/innovators Venue at OneSpark is full. 

Our Inventors/Innovators area is a block on Laura Street in-between Independent Drive and Bay street. It is directly in front of the center of the Jacksonville Landing and is on the route most folks take when going between Hemming Plaza and The Landing. We are right next to the food area which you see as a red + in the picture below. The solid green box is Hemming Plaza. Ours will likely be one of the high traffic areas of the Festival.

Here is one of my favorite quotes which relates to all steps of the Invention/Get to Market process. 

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan PRESS ON! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."....Calvin Coolidge

Thank you to everyone who continues to talk to and encourage others to attend our group.

Feel free to send interested folks to www.nfiig.com If they sign up in the contact area, I will add them to the list of updates.

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating.

When you look into your future, What do you see? Will it be you pursuing your goals, concepts, and dreams, or will it be you saying Gosh I thought of that idea 10 years ago but never pursued it?
If Not Now, When?......
