The immense pressure to conjure up grand ideas can prove to be overwhelming. While the recognition of the pivotal role bold innovations play in our disruptive and fiercely competitive era is clear, the prospect of achieving revolutionary thinking often leaves us paralyzed. Rather than fixating on the pursuit of a monumental $10 billion IPO or a coveted Nobel Prize, the most prolific innovators redirect their focus towards the realm of Big Little Breakthroughs — the small, imaginative gestures that, over time, yield immense rewards.

The Big Little Breakthroughs framework unveils a specific and pragmatic approach to harnessing latent creative potential. Rather than embarking on audacious, risky, and resource-intensive endeavors, participants uncover the potency of unleashing minor, everyday acts of creativity that cumulatively yield monumental outcomes.

In this invigorating, timely, and impactful keynote, Josh Linkner, a New York Times bestselling author and globally-recognized innovation luminary, guides us through the journey of mitigating the risk associated with the creative process. He provides insights into developing the aptitude to catalyze transformative breakthroughs and cultivates the confidence required to responsibly embrace creative risks. This keynote is meticulously crafted for leaders and teams confronted by: The acknowledgment of the necessity to innovate but grappling with the initiation of the process, The mandate to instill a culture of innovation within their spheres, The weight of generating breakthroughs while wrestling with delivery challenges.

Upon conclusion of this experience, attendees will leave with: A validated framework for fostering a profusion of innovations devoid of the conventional risks that often accompany them, Illuminating and unforgettable anecdotes that underscore how ingenuity, creative problem-solving, and inventive thinking pave the way for breakthrough accomplishments, Insights into the mindsets, routines, and strategies of the world’s most prolific artists, business magnates, and entrepreneurs.
