I offer compelling insights on the future of business and organizational culture. My top objective is to engage people into thinking differently see how opportunities and threats can be approached in new ways.
During every talk, no matter the topic, I strive to challenge the conventional notions of leadership and how we run companies, enabling leaders to understand how to form and act on the next paradigms that are needed to run innovative organizations. We usually cover a journey of evolution, taking lessons from the past, present and future to offer compelling solutions from my personal experience on how to take action and execute for success.
Consider me to speak at your event if:
You are looking to “shake things up” with a different, provocative point of view.
You are striving to get people to break out from the norm and think differently.

Revealing the New – Fundamentally, the change that is occurring in front of our eyes has a lot to do with the core way of how businesses create and capture value. The very foundational principles that many existing companies have been built and grew on are being challenged every day. As we move from defined products to co-creation of value, any new ideas will be accepted, rejected or ignored because of how they’re understood. Preparing markets for innovation requires unusual creativity to achieve clarity around the problem or the proposition. Reuven shares techniques and examples that humanize the innovation by telling compelling stories. He will explore bringing the complex, unfamiliar and still-emerging innovations to life with artifacts, prototypes and demonstrations, taking customers on a journey of co-creating their future with our organizations.
