Lisa helps leaders understand that endless emails, meetings, and weekly reports are not the right tools to measure workers’ productivity. Workplaces need to innovate and utilize time-saving methods, kill old-fashioned rules, and boost productivity with simplicity.
She also teaches that lack of innovation holds organizations back. We must think differently, and learn how to solve problems creatively. Lisa Bodell is also a global council member of the World Economic Forum.

Winning innovators embrace change - do you? What holds you and your organization back from better innovating, every day?
In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place inside organizations to help them grow all too often hold them back.
This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work. If you want people to approach change differently, you have to help them change their approach.
Imagine what you could do with the time you spend sitting in meetings and writing emails every day. Complexity is killing companies' ability to innovate and adapt, and simplicity is quickly becoming the competitive advantage of our time.
Drawing on research and themes from her latest book, Why Simple Wins, our CEO, Lisa Bodell, inspires leaders and their teams to proactively move beyond the feelings of frustration and futility that come with so much unproductive work in today’s corporate world, to create a corporate culture where valuable, essential, meaningful work is the norm.
