Innovation SPEAKERS

Our speakers bureau represents over 150 of the top innovation speakers in the United States and Canada; with speaking fees starting at $5,000 and up for a keynote address. Choosing a great innovation expert will help define the tenor of an event – we can help you choose the best candidates to match your event goals.

Most of today’s leading innovation experts focus on utilizing new technologies or fostering a culture of innovation within organizations. Your keynote speaker needs to mesh with your organization’s mission statement, goals, audience expectations and organizational culture; most will usually incorporate case studies into their presentations and will inspire your team to spark overall innovation in the corporate culture.

Innovation is one of the primary ways to differentiate your products and services from the competition. If you can’t compete on price, you’ll need innovative products and ideas to make your business stand out from the crowd. Some of our top innovation speakers are: Luke Williams, Ray Kurzweil, Jay Silver and Frans Johansson. You might also be interested in joining our Google+ Innovation Forum.
