Accelerate Your impact - August 17-19, 2023

Ignite Innovation

Karen Mangia and Chris Westfall present Ignite Innovation

With Chris Westfall and Karen Mangia

A live, three-day workshop that can help you to show up differently for your career, your relationships ...and your life. Discover how to re-engage with the things that matter most - connect with the potential that's waiting for you - and explore new possibilities, in this one-of-a kind retreat. Join us in Indianapolis August 17-19, 2023 - and Ignite Innovation.


We've all had those times of discovery, where we know exactly what to do and how to do it. Have you been there? A moment of genius! Wouldn't it be great if you knew how to show up at your best, even when circumstances are at their worst? What would that mean to you, to your team - and to your organization? 

When you get out of your own way, you access an authentic approach to life that opens up new opportunities. Beyond "that's just how I am" and "that's the way we've always done things" is a world of possibility - if you choose to see it. Adaptability and resourcefulness are part of our human nature - it's built into who we are. So, how do we access new resourcefulness? Innovation is the key. We all have the capacity for new ideas, and new innovation. What if you gave yourself permission to see things in a new way? Maybe you're facing some challenges right now. If you're here, it must be time to turn change into powerful progress.

Ignite Innovation is a three-day retreat, happening in Indianapolis on August 17-19, 2023. 

We all have the ability to innovate.When you are surrounded by people who are focused on your success, you realize that you don't have to go it alone. You uncover what's been missing. You step into possibility - and into your potential. And in the middle of difficult circumstances, difficult career challenges, difficult people and difficult choices...things get easier.  Even when (and especially when) life isn't easy. 

Ignite Innovation and discover success on your own terms. Why not?

Ignite Innovation - August 17-19, 2023.  You will connect within a community - and discover....

Back to NATURE

Fort Harrison State Park is an inspiring 1,700 acre nature preserve, filled with hiking trails, a championship golf course, and over a century of military history. Against this natural backdrop, Ignite Innovation happens at the Heartland Film Headquarters, located on the edge of the park.  A return to a natural state is key to helping ignite innovation, and exploring the park is part of the journey that's available to you. Our location at Heartland Film, on the edge of Fort Harrison State Park, is a perfect place to reset and renew. Come to Ignite Innovation, and be inspired to access your true potential.
