Most Popular Keynotes

The Innovation Gap:
There’s a difference between what we plan on (or what we accept) and what’s actually possible. In this talk, Sterling first explores Innovation Thinking™ to see that gap in our businesses and our lives, and then, with the audience, steps into the gap. He provides the keys to developing a culture of innovation to take advantage of the growth potential all around us.

The Illusion of the Impossible:
In this talk Sterling unveils the illusion of the impossible opening up new possibilities for everyone in attendance. He brings case studies such as IBM, Amazon and Apple together with pop culture references to give attendees valuable takeaways they’re excited to do something about.

How Leaders Innovate:
Told as a story inside the 80s TV show MacGyver, innovation isn’t about money, who you know, or even being in the right place at the right time. It’s about discomfort. And embracing that discomfort as our access to breakthrough growth.
