I catalyze transformation as an expert on disruption strategy and leadership. I'm an entrepreneur and NYTimes bestselling author and have seen business, society, and the world undergo seismic changes. My work includes leading a new research group at PA Consulting, writing books, speaking, and advising companies and their leaders. I help leaders and their organizations in three ways: 1) Research, Writing, and Streaming: I share my research and thinking through books and articles. I also stream weekly here on LinkedIn, usually Tuesday at 9am PST. My latest research focuses on disruptive innovation strategies, leadership in challenging times, and the future of work and organizational culture. In my current role as Chief Research Officer at PA Consulting, I lead our thought leadership efforts in addressing ''wicked'' problems facing business leaders, such as how to leverage ESG to do well and also to do good. 2) Speaking and Workshops: From opening conference keynotes to intimate executive gatherings, my speeches and workshops educate and identify specific actions people can take to start making the future a reality today. Peppered with relevant examples, I tailor the content for every audience. I love creating ''a-ha'' moments when the audience not only sees what is possible in the future, but also has the confidence to take the next step toward it. 3) Consulting and Advisory. I'm lucky to have 4,000+ globally-based colleagues at PA Consulting with whom I partner to deliver end-to-end innovation and transformation. Our purpose is to use the power of ingenuity to build a positive human future. For more information about PA Consulting, visit
