About Speaker Rajat Paharia…

Widely recognized as the father of gamification, Rajat Paharia founded Bunchball, the company that launched both the social gaming and gamification industries, in 2005. Since then, he has parlayed his unique understanding of technology and design – along with a preternatural ability to recognize patterns – into the creation of a company whose market refining solutions have helped engage customers and motivate employees at hundreds of companies, including Ford, MaFel, Adobe, Bravo, Cisco, Coca Cola, SAP and Kimberly Clark.

Before founding Bunchball, Rajat was an Interaction Designer and then Practice Lead at world–renowned innovation and design firm IDEO, where he did everything from human factors, interaction design and software prototyping to organizational  change, innovation training, and business strategy for clients ranging from startups to multinationals. His work at IDEO spanned industries including enterprise telecommunication, highvolume consumer goods, medical, wireless data services, law enforcement, connected media devices, aerospace and automotive.

Prior to IDEO, Rajat worked at companies including Philips Consumer Electronics, IBM Research and ViewStar. Rajat earned a master’s degree in Computer Science (with a focus on Human Interaction) from Stanford University, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of California Berkeley. Rajat is the also the author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller Loyalty 3.0   How to Revolutionize Customer and Employee Engagement with Big Data and Gamification.

Testimonials 3

  • My team invited Rajat to introduce the world of gamification to an Asian client who knew very little about this space. We asked Rajat to give his presentation on a day when our client had to sit through several other presentations. In spite of the meeting fatigue, Rajat managed to get everybody’s undivided attention for the entire time by delivering a presentation that was crisp, compelling, and tailored to our client’s needs. Everyone agreed that his was the best presentation of the day.

  • Rajat Paharia captivates audiences with the unique combination of his lightning-fast delivery, keen data points, and forehead slap-inducing insight. While listening to him speak, Rajat almost dares you to blink, out of fear that you’ll miss something that will change your company forever. The Fantasy Sports Trade Association has booked hundreds of speakers and panels. Five years later, our attendees still talk about Rajat’s presentation. He stands alone as the only keynote speaker to be asked to reprise his role.

    President of Fantasy Sports Trade Association

  • I invited Rajat to speak at an event my company hosted and having him as part of our agenda helped drive registrations for our event.  On the day, he delivered a fantastic talk that was tailored to our attendees.  He is a talented public speaker who engaged the audience and delivered a thought provoking presentation.
