About Stephen Shapiro, Keynote Speaker:

Why Stephen Shapiro

Passionate and captivating, Stephen’s high-energy approach to innovation gets audiences out of their seats and into new ways of thinking about their business challenges.

The first innovation opportunity Stephen spotted was the opportunity to innovate within his own life. Halfway through his 15-year tenure at Accenture, while leading the company’s business process reengineering practice, he realized he no longer wanted to be responsible for people losing their jobs. So he did exactly the opposite by building Accenture’s thriving 20,000-person process and innovation practice focused on growth and job creation.

In 2001, after publishing his first book, 24/7 Innovation, Stephen left Accenture to become a full-time innovation speaker and advisor to clients around the world. Since then he has published four more books – Goal-Free Living (2006), The Little Book of Big Innovation Ideas (2007), Personality Poker (2010) and Best Practices are Stupid (2011) — and spoken to audiences in 50 different countries.

Today, Stephen continues to focus on transforming the way businesses like 3M, P&G, Marriott, Nike, and Microsoft improve innovation practices through customized and keynote speeches, advisory engagements and other services. Passionate and captivating, Stephen’s high-energy approach to innovation gets audiences out of their seats and into new ways of thinking about their business challenges.

Stephen currently serves on the Board of Directors of National Speakers Association (NSA) and is the recipient of the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, NSA’s highest earned designation. In 2015 he was inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame.

Stephen is based in Orlando, Florida and loves traveling to meet his clients around the world.

Testimonials 6

  • Stephen was a HUGE success, the audience was PUMPED by what he had to say, he is SO incredibly personable, riveting and the audience was enthralled. He stayed for lunch, talking and answering questions – he was perfect.

    Fiatech

  • “The most common feedback I heard was that they would have liked to have had another 30 minutes. To get feedback from a scientific audience on a topic that is not a scientific presentation that a session could have been longer is exceptional and unheard of. Once again, a heart-felt thank you.”

    Bristol Meyer Squibb

  • Stephen’s passion for innovation is infectious. His mandate to focus innovation relentlessly on well-articulated problems has caused an internal shift in mindset and approach for our innovators. Stephen delivers both in a way that is truly inspirational and actionable.

    Laurie Heltsley

    Director of Innovation and Strategic Projects, Procter & Gamble
