Founder & CEO of FutureThink Bestselling Author of Kill the Company & Why Simple Wins
Lisa Bodell Bio
I'm pleased to introduce our keynote speaker, Lisa Bodell.
Lisa's work focuses on the power of simplification, and her speech today has a simple message for us all: Imagine what you could do with the time you spend every day sitting in meetings, answering emails, and doing unnecessary work. Are we spending our time on the work that really matters? For most of us, the answer is NO, and Lisa's here to inspire us on how to change that.
As the author of her second best-selling book Why Simple Wins, Lisa believes that operating with simplicity will be the number one competitive advantage for organizations in the future, because it allows us to focus and do more valuable things. She's the founder and CEO of FutureThink, a company that uses radically simple techniques to help teams kill complexity, increase their capability for innovation, and do more meaningful work.
Lisa brings her compelling message to over 100,000 people a year, transforming teams inside Google, Pfizer, Lockheed Martin, and more. She's used the power of simplification to launch three successful businesses, write two award winning books (called Kill the Company and Why Simple Wins), and is a contributor to Forbes, WIRED, and Harvard Business Review. She also enjoys shaping big picture issues on the global stage and served as an advisor on boards such as Novartis' Diversity and Inclusion Board, the US National Security Agency, and the Global Advisory Council for the World Economic Forum.
Please welcome, Lisa Bodell!
