Rohit Bhargava

"How to Lead the Future with Non-Obvious Thinking"

Rohit Bhargava believes the world needs more non-obvious thinking and he has spent the last decade helping people and companies lead the future by bringing more humanity back to business.

His candid and fast-paced session, “How to Lead the Future with Non-Obvious Thinking," will reveal the five habits of non-obvious thinkers that can help you see opportunities others don’t, be more resilient, and lead the future.

Bhargava will deliver strategies that help you:

  • Shift your perspective and shape your organization to better navigate change and disruption.
  • Understand future customers and prepare your organization to serve needs customers haven’t asked for yet, but will.
  • Discover ideas from other sectors and expertly apply them to your organization.

He is the Wall Street Journal best-selling author of seven books on topics as wide ranging as the future of business, building a trustworthy brand, and how to go beyond diversity to create a more inclusive world. His signature book, Non-Obvious, has inspired over one million readers to shift their perspective.

As a “non-boring” keynote speaker, Rohit has been invited to deliver multiple TEDx talks and taken the stage at over 500 events in 32 countries around the world.

Before starting the Non-Obvious Company, Rohit previously spent 12 years leading marketing and innovation strategy for brands at two of the largest advertising agencies in the world, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy.

Outside of his speaking and consulting, he is also an Adjunct Professor of marketing and storytelling at Georgetown University and writes a monthly column for GQ magazine in Brazil. His insights have also been featured on NPR, Fast Company, CNN and the Harvard Business Review.

Most importantly, Rohit believes in LISTENING before talking, and his business card describes him as a “nice guy” – a claim he hopes to prove by staying after his talk to personally engage with participants.
