WELLESLEY, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Yegii Inc., the insight network, is announcing the event Trends in Crowdsourcing Expertise to be held on June 12, 2014 at Babson College in Wellesley, MA. The 3 hour event will lead a discussion around the trends, players, and future of crowdsourcing knowledge and runs from 4-7pm. It is open to the public and free for all participants that register on Yegii.com by June 12.

Big clients are entrusting strategic projects to distributed teams they have never met. How can professionals capitalize on this growing trend? Speakers include Alan MacCormack, Professor at Harvard Business School; Peter A. Gloor, Research Scientist at the Center for Collective Intelligence at MIT's Sloan School of Management; Kelly Higgins, Associate Principal, Challenge Design and Development, InnoCentive; and Kevin Redmond, Director of Digital, MMB.
