Quality Work

I have had the pleasure of taking part in two of Greenfire Innovation’s virtual speakers summit. Eric and his team are great connectors and continue to bring speakers and topics together that have an eye to the future. Greenfire’s network has helped me connect with several other innovation-minded folks around Northwest Indiana. Eric and his team are innovation-minded and put together quality work.

A Yearly ‘Must Attend’!

What an impressive Convoy this year! Having attended the inaugural event I can say this one was even better! I loved the interactive sessions and the content-filled, personable presentations. A yearly must attend!

Dr. Felicity Joy Solomon

"Friendly Universe"

The iNautilus Convoy™ is a seminar for leaders. Part of our Higher Purpose at Greenfire Innovations is to provide valuable content to help entrepreneurs thrive. As a "B2B Missionary", one of the ways we do this is through the Convoy. Every year we bring thought leaders together to deliver amazing content for leaders, small business owners, entrepreneurs, and non-profit directors. This year the theme is "Friendly Universe" from the quote attributed to Albert Einstein: "The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe." Free to attend live, the iNautilus Convoy 2021 is slated for December 6th through 10th, 2021.

Check out the amazing speakers below.

Presentation: Making Creative Choices*


Creativity is widely misunderstood. In this dynamic talk, Gregg Fraley dispels the myths about creativity. He demonstrates thinking and self-expression tools that anybody can adopt and use. If you want to be more creatively effective, and drive innovation in your life, work, and leadership, you can. He'll show us how to make creative choices.

Presentation: Run With Scissors - The Value of Risk In Achieving Goals

Strategic Innovation

Defying conventional wisdom can be a powerful tool for discovering purpose. Jane provides a lively, interactive session that introduces the relationship between risk and innovation/change.  Participants will try exercises from her book to explore how the concepts provide a fresh way to see themselves and their businesses in new ways.

Presentation: Anyone Can Innovate


The idea of inventing something new seems out of reach to many, but innovation on the other hand, should be and is more approachable. Over the last 15 years, I have had the opportunity to build and run innovation networks across Indiana and meet a lot of creative, interesting people. My goal is to share what I have learned about being more innovative and to help you feel more comfortable with the fact that you are an innovator too. You are the one capable of solving the problems you see in the community and world around you.

Presentation: Trophies for Talking


Jenny was told as a child that her parents couldn't wait for her to start talking, and once she did she never shut up. They aren't wrong when they say these things! Jenny calls herself a "words person" and loves how humans communicate their needs with one another. She is NOT a communications expert and admits the topic sounds REALLY boring. But realizing that ALL CONFLICT is caused by poor communication, combined with her love for people, leads her to try to explain how those conflicts can be avoided. Whether you struggle with your kiddos, your team at work, your spouse, your child's school teacher... it all goes back to the words you say, and the words you don't.

Presentation: Peace, Power and Possibility: 5 Powerful Principles for Transforming Conflict


Are there people – co-workers, teammates, associates – with whom you have a conflict?

Do you strategize how you will communicate with them when avoidance isn’t possible?

Are you tense and uptight just thinking about having a conversation with them?

Valerie guides leaders in generating peace, power, and possibility in seemingly unworkable situations, resulting in partnership, workability, and creativity.
