WORKTECH, the leading international conference series on the future of work and the workplace, will present a special keynote address from Steven Johnson, best-selling author, in San Francisco Bay on 15 October 2012.

Mr. Johnson – the author of Where Good Ideas Come From, The Invention of Air, and Everything Bad Is Good for You will address an audience of 150 business and thought-leaders at the Evernote HQ as part of the 2nd annual WORKTECH West Coast event.
