About Keynote Speaker Michael Maddock

About Speaker Michael Maddock…

Mike Maddock considers himself an entrepreneurial anthropologist whose purpose is “to inspire and empower curiosity.” He gives leaders the confidence to take action by providing the inspiration, tools, and connections they need. He is an entrepreneur, a keynote speaker, a writer, and an Idea Monkey. 

He calls himself an Idea Monkey because he loves to solve problems with disruptive ideas. This passion for problem-solving led him to establish Maddock Douglas, Inc. in 1991. Maddock Douglas has become an internationally recognized innovation consultancy that has helped more than 25 percent of the Fortune 100 create and launch new products, services, and business models. It is the perfect place for Idea Monkeys and the Ringleaders who keep them on track. 

Mike has launched six successful businesses. He also co-chairs the Gathering of Titans Entrepreneurial Conclave at MIT, he is past Chapter Chairman of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), both located in Chicago. 

A doodler turned cartoonist turned author, Mike has used words and pictures to get laughs and build ideas his entire life. Today, Mike is the author of four books: “Free the Idea Monkey…to focus on what matters most!”; “Brand New: Solving the Innovation Paradox”; “Flirting With the Uninterested: Innovating in a Sold, Not Bought Category” — and, finally, “Plan D,” his latest book about Disruptors. He is also a featured innovation columnist for Forbes where he writes about entrepreneurship.
