Nilofer Merchant

A celebrated innovator and best-selling author, Nilofer Merchant not only illuminates the future of work but also gives us the strategies to win in that future. She is a former executive of Apple and other tech companies, who once got sworn at by Steve Jobs himself. Her impressive operational accomplishments include shipping over 100 products, netting $18 billion in revenues. She literally wrote the book of “new rules” for business and innovators in our Social Era in 2012. As those insights evolved into accepted truths about our connected world, she again lit the path to the next frontier. Few industries or brands will survive the coming AI and commoditization unless they understand what Merchant calls “Onlyness” – the experience, talent, perspective, and purpose lying untapped in our own people. Leaders ask her to speak at their companies for good reason; She was awarded the Future Thinker award by the notable London-based organization, Thinkers 50, noting her as the #1 person most likely to influence the future of management in both theory and practice.
