The Art of Vision
Internationally recognized artist, TED speaker, and bestselling author, Erik Wahl’s keynote experience creates a dynamic, multi-dimensional metaphor for how to systematically embrace innovation and risk. His message is that disruption is the new normal and businesses must embrace creativity in a wholesale fashion, or risk being left behind. He leaves audiences and organizations inspired to be increasingly agile and outlines how to use disruption as a competitive advantage.
Wahl started challenging companies to change their way of thinking after discovering, early on in his career, that organizations where the mental discipline of creativity was encouraged did exponentially better than those that did not make innovation a priority. Today, his list of clients includes AT&T, Disney, London School of Business, Microsoft, FedEx, Exxon Mobil, Ernst & Young, and XPrize.
Wahl’s new book, The Spark and the Grind, activates the essential components of translating ideas into action. His previous book, a bestseller called Unthink, was hailed by Forbes as “the blueprint to actionable creativity”, and by Fast Company as “provocative with a purpose”.
