COMPANY INFO

Pragmatic Innovation Partners LLC

I work with executives and founders to mobilize and inspire their organizations to deliver innovation results. I tap into my career's worth of experience as an innovation operator inside demanding, conservative and proud brands where I focused on building and leading teams to create customer-obsessed approaches that were essential to fostering innovation and change. In my award-winning book, The Change Maker's Playbook: How to Seek, Seed and Scale Innovation In Any Company I share some of the practical advice, tools, and stories (my own and that of 50 other innovators interviewed) gathered to help the person sitting in the innovation "hot seat" make progress to achieve their vision that I expand upon in my advisory, project-based consulting, keynote addresses and executive consults.
