Adam Hartung

Adam Hartung’s remarkably consistent track record is built on applying his two proprietary frameworks for predicting business success; The Phoenix Principle and the Status Quo Risk Management Playbook. His keynote presentations and workshops make trends clear and help audiences chart a successful course to a more profitable future in our fast changing world.

Adam has been the No. 1 Leadership columnist for Forbes.com since 2009, written a quarterly column for CIO Magazine since 2010 and been a contributing editor for the International Journal of Innovation Science since its founding in 2008. His columns have boldly predicted highly unexpected declines for market leaders such as Tribune, Sears, and Research in Motion years before anyone else.

For two decades, Adam’s accurate forecasts about market shifting trends and his predictions for industry leading corporations has made him a frequent press interviewee regarding Apple, Microsoft, HP and other tech companies, as well as the automobile, media and retail industries. His insight to business growth and overcoming organizational obstacles have been featured in Inc, Adweek, Washington Times and on BBC television.

Since 2004, Adam has been CEO and Managing Partner of Spark Partners, a strategy and transformation consultancy. In 2010, Adam became the founding CEO of Soparfilm Energy, a corporation that invested early in fracking for oil and gas production. Additionally, Adam has been on the Board of Directors at several successful privately held companies, including Crosfield Electronics and Benchmark Technologies in the U.K., Biometric Access Corp. and Apex Interactive and in the U.S.  Adam provides board advisory services and is a certified Fellow in the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) where he is a regular speaker on risk management.

Adam was formerly an executive with PepsiCo and DuPont and is a Boston Consulting Group alumni. Adam received his MBA from the Harvard Business School with Distinction.  He now travels the globe giving keynotes and leading risk management workshops sharing his insights to how companies and executives can succeed."

 

Through a rich collection of case studies and stories, Adam keeps his presentation relevant and focused on your industry, your business, your marketplace. He reveals four steps to innovation that have been proven successful over and over again in a wide variety of industries. Your team and your employees will understand what it takes to turn an organization in a new direction and seize the opportunities in a turbulent market in order to launch new growth and innovation.

Topics include:

  • Beating the competition through marketplace disruption.
  • Seizing hidden marketplace opportunities.
  • The four steps to innovation management, implementation, growth and success post-2009.
