One of the most influential and respected figures in the technology, economic, and business worlds, Rich Karlgaard advises audiences on how to harness an organization’s strengths to maximize business opportunities in a fast-changing global marketplace.

Harvard Business School professor and one of the world’s leading authorities on disruptive management, Clayton Christensen writes, “Rich Karlgaard is a navigator for the rest of us.”

Praised by Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, and FedEx chairman and CEO, Fred Smith for his insights, Rich is a thought leader that Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and national associations turn to for a reliable roadmap of what’s to come. Drawing from his roles as a Silicon Valley-based publisher for Forbes, a columnist for Forbes Asia, host of the annual Forbes Global CEO Conference and semi-annual Forbes investor cruises, Rich’s business-consultant-like approach helps audiences gain a practical understanding of the events that are rapidly changing their world—from tech to Trump—and the impacts on business, industry, and markets.

Rich is also a regular guest on the FOX Business network, the author of best-selling books on high-performance organizations, and a past recipient of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Rich equips today’s leaders with timely insights that help them adapt to the era of technological and political disruption and thrive in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.
