Leapfrog your way to breakthrough innovation – by creating new products, services, customer experiences and business models.

Dr. Soren Kaplan’s keynote speaking focuses on a single theme: innovation.  Having worked across industries including technology, consumer products, financial services, healthcare, hospitality, media & entertainment, and many others, Soren tailors his keynotes to his audience’s specific definition of “innovation.”  He also frequently leads and facilitates collaborative working sessions and breakouts following his keynotes – something that sets him apart from other traditional speakers.

Disruptive Innovation Keynote Speaker – Speaking on Disruptive Innovation, Change, & Leadership

Soren Kaplan’s diverse, hands-on experience with disruptive technology, product and service innovation, and new business models, gives him a unique perspective that keeps his audiences on the edge of their seats. With an eye on the future, he outlines the intersecting trends, technologies, and the forces shaping new opportunities. But he doesn’t stop there. He also reveals the emerging and potentially disruptive applications of these technologies, while drawing connections and outlining implications for business leaders and organizations as they move into their increasingly fast-paced and uncertain futures.

How to Create a Culture of Innovation

As a leading expert in organizational culture, leadership, and innovation, Soren Kaplan delivers high-impact keynotes that tap into his 20+ years’ experience working across industries, his executive education programs in strategic innovation at the Copenhagen Business School, and research and insights from his widely recognized FastCompany article, 6 Ways to Create a Culture of Innovation.

In addition to these keynote presentations and others like them, he often tailors his message by sharing emerging trends, case examples, and strategies for driving disruptive innovation and change within specific business functions or industries like healthcare, financial services, and design.
