Erik Wahl

Art of Vision: Motivational Artist & Speaker

Bio

Internationally recognized artist, TED speaker, and #1 bestselling author, Erik Wahl’s message is that disruption is the new normal and businesses must embrace creativity in a wholesale fashion, or risk being left behind. His presentation inspires organizations to be increasingly agile, and outlines how to use disruption as a competitive advantage. +

Wahl discovered an alarming truth early in his career as a partner in a corporate firm: organizations that encouraged the mental discipline of creativity did better than those that did not put innovation as a priority mission. So he set out to challenge companies to change their way of thinking.

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 “provocative with a purpose”. His list of clients includes AT&T, Disney, London School of Business, Microsoft, FedEx, Exxon Mobil, Ernst & Young, and XPrize. --

Topics

UnThink +

Somehow we’ve come to believe that creativity is reserved for the chosen few: the poets, the painters, the writers. The truth is bigger and better than that. Creativity is in all of us. We simply need to rediscover the keys that will unlock our potential. UNthink is the keynote experience that will push members of your organization beyond their traditional thought patterns and habitual levels of performance. UNthink will inspire audiences to realize they are capable of so much more than they have been led to believe.

The UNthink program helps reframe your organization’s thinking so that new creative actions become possible. Learning how to UNthink will inject your daily grind with new passion, allowing employees to see how the organization wants and needs all of their talents and energies, not just the ones they’ve been using so far. You’ll begin the process of rethinking your life as a blank canvas of limitless opportunity on which to create your masterpiece.

This program will allow your organization to:

  1. Step outside convention to discover new and unexpected solutions to business challenges
  2. Challenge pre-conceived notions about what’s possible
  3. UNthink your way to increased creativity, productivity and passion --

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.

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?”  --
