A modified version of "ImagineIt in the Workplace" is now part of the global MBA program at the Graduate School of Business and Society (ALTIS) at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan, Italy. The 24 students represented 15 countries on four continents.

Concepts ranged from innovative storage options for downsized living spaces in crowded metropolitian cities to products that allow the elderly to live independently despite physical limitations.

June 6, 2010 ImagineIt! CEO Keynotes SIPA Annual Conference Washington, DC
"Profit Ability" was the theme of the annual international gathering of members of the Specialized Information Publishers Association (SIPA). With the glut of free information on the Internet, some questioned whether corporate or trade association newsletters would remain a viable business model. ImagineIt! CEO Joseph Kayne was asked to set the stage for the three-day event during which SIPA members would assess the future of their industry. Encouraging the audience to challenge current assumptions about their products and customers, Kayne demonstrated how good creative process might lead to new approaches to an industry that began with the Kiplinger Newsletter in 1920. In closing, Kayne suggested the SIPA acronym might better stand for "Seeing Infinite Possibilities Association."
