To Josh Linkner, creativity and innovation are the lifeblood of all human progress…and he’s spent his career harnessing the power of creative disruption.

He has been the founder and CEO of five tech companies, which sold for a combined value of over $200 million. Josh is a New York Times Bestselling author, and an internationally-recognized expert on innovation and applied creativity.

His books, Disciplined Dreaming: A Proven System to Drive Breakthrough Creativity, The Road to Reinvention: How to Drive Disruption and Accelerate Transformation, and Hacking Innovation: The New Growth Model from the Sinister World of Hackers have received critical acclaim and pushed the boundaries of business leaders worldwide.
