Art of Vision: Motivational Artist & Speaker

Bio

As the landscape for business continues to change, leaders need to stay creative to stay ahead of the game to keep customers interested. Internationally-recognized artist Erik Wahl shows how organizations can tap into creativity to achieve superior performance and differentiate themselves from the competition.

Drawing from his experience in both business and art, Wahl has grown to become one of the most sought-after corporate speakers today. Demonstrating his painting and graffiti live on-stage, Wahl uses his talent and process as a metaphor for his message for clients such as AT&T, Disney, London School of Business, Microsoft, FedEx, Exxon Mobil, Ernst & Young, and XPrize.

A featured TED presenter, Wahl consistently delights and motivates audiences toward new ways of breakthrough thinking. His bestselling business book, Unthink, was hailed by Forbes magazine as “THE blueprint to actionable creativity”, and by Fast Company magazine as “provocative with a purpose.” His latest e-book The Spark and the Grind was released in early 2017.

The Art of Leadership

As the landscape for business continues to change, Leaders need to foster a steady stream of disruptive strategies and unexpected solutions to stay ahead of the game. This requires solutions that revive stagnant markets or completely reinvent the competitive dynamics of an industry. Disruptive thinking is about fostering a culture of innovation leadership that provides the framework and motivation to generate those strategies and execute those solutions. It is an essential skill for any business leader, from a small start-up to a global corporation, with the desire to transform organizational processes and behaviors, and ask “Why hadn’t we ever thought about our business and culture this way before?”

NEW FOR 2017:

The Spark and The Grind: Ignite The Power of Disciplined Creativity

This new keynote presents the yin and the yang of the creative process: How to create and maintain the flow of ideas, and how to execute them. The world is filled with dreamers and doers—but the only way things happen are when  dreamers muster the mental tenacity and hard work, and when doers harness their innate creativity and flexibility.

Erik's dynamic presentation explores the process of creativity and creation. Audiences are inspired to laughter, tears and always leave with a desire to unearth more meaning in their work and their lives, and the tools to find it.

In THE SPARK AND THE GRIND keynote, Erik:

  • Deconstructs the process and discipline necessary to realize the visions of master creators such as Isaac Newton, Thomas Edison and Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Delves into the science of innovation, and how to tap it for your own purposes

  • Drives home the importance of creative culture, regardless of industry, and how to harness it for individual and collective success.
