Workshop Details

Focused 100% on your company, the workshops are high-impact, high-intensity experiences that the world's leading companies, billionaires, CEOs and NASA have relied on to either:
1. Dramatically accelerate innovation;
2. Extract the best thinking from their teams;
3. Prototype scenarios of their future; or
4. Make change happen when change is hard.

In the innovation workshops, Jeremy will guide your team through his proven methodology in a series of exercises applied directly to your most concerning challenges. Sub-groups of 4-8 people will work together developing impactful new ideas, disruptive thinking and a cohesive set of next steps. Multiple teams provide multiple perspectives, leading to even more ideas. Workshops can include a dozen people or a full conference room, although the structure is different based on size. Also note the workshops are especially useful for CEO participation, corporate boards and leadership teams.

In addition to the tangible takeaways, your team will develop a new set of tools that can be replicated, including: rapid prototyping, building cohesion, disruptive scenario thinking, forecasting the pace of change and the 6 Patterns of Opportunity.

Jeremy's innovation keynote and workshops helped: NASA prototype the journey to MARS, the top 200 from Microsoft prototype cultural change, the top 50 from Victoria's Secret better understand their customer, the top 250 from NBC prototype their long term future, the top 80 from Chicago Tribune reinvent their strategy, and hundreds of other brands and billionaires to prototype a better future.

"If you're looking to extract better thinking from your team or to make change happen when change is hard, you need Jeremy's innovation keynotes and workshops. His workshops led to new opportunities and revenues. He engaged our people into thinking differently and allowed us to identify things we would not have identified on our own. We green lit / funded ideas directly from the workshop. Jeremy made me a better leader, stretched my imagination and created opportunities for our organization that would not have happened without him. He energizes your team, gets them to think differently, and leads them to action-oriented ideas. His book became our manual for accelerating change and transforming our company from a newspaper to a business services company... and we went from Chapter 11 bankruptcy to one of the most profitable media companies in America. - CEO, Chicago Tribune

In addition to the keynote, we hired Jeremy to lead a workshop with our executive team. His energy and enthusiasm is contagious and what followed was the most creative session we've ever had. I don't think our team would have achieved the insight we did had it not been for Jeremy. He helped us sharpen our focus on some key strategic initiatives which will lead to game-changing results. As if that wasn't enough, he even got us featured on CNN."

He will make you BETTER because he will teach you the how to overcome the psychological traps that consistently block successful people from realizing their potential. Connecting 10,000 years of evolution to our ability to adapt to rapid change, he will show you why smart people miss great ideas and what to do about it.

He will make you FASTER by teaching you six patterns of opportunity; the proven paths to unstoppable ideas.

As the guy referred to as the "Intellectual Can of Red Bull," all of Jeremy's examples will stem from highly engaging, humorous and educational lessons from the untold tales of reclusive billionaires, unexpected stories of success, ex-criminals who made it big, and ordinary people who achieved the unthinkable by simply seeing the opportunities that others overlooked.
