The Art of Vision
An 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. Wahl leaves audiences and organizations inspired to be increasingly agile and outlines how to use disruption as a competitive advantage.
Wahl discovered early on in his corporate career that organizations that encouraged the mental discipline of creativity did exponentially better than those that did not prioritize innovation. Today, he challenges companies to change their way of thinking to become the disruptor instead of the disrupted. His extensive client list includes top organizations such as AT&T, Disney, London School of Business, Microsoft, FedEx, Exxon Mobil, Ernst & Young, and XPrize.
A #1 bestselling author, Wahl’s new book, The Spark and the Grind, activates the essential components of translating ideas into action. His previous book, Unthink, was hailed by Forbes as “the blueprint to actionable creativity”, and by Fast Company as “provocative with a purpose”.
Wahl is also an acclaimed graffiti artist who uses his art to raise money for charity.
