Dr. Kaihan Krippendorff, Author, Outthink the Competition

A renowned business strategist, Kaihan Krippendorff is a best-selling author, former McKinsey consultant, and popular corporate keynote speaker. His unique style of combining innovative thinking with sharp business acumen has led him to become a trusted strategic advisor to a growing cadre of global corporations. Kaihan is a recognized expert on innovation, business strategy,   and   creativity,   appearing   on the likes of Fox Business News, CNBC, NPR, as well as opening for Jack Welch and speaking at hundreds of leading conferences worldwide including Harvard Business Review and TEDx.

Krippendorff has trained over 6,000 executives and entrepreneurs in his unique business strategy approach, "The Outthinker Process," and works with the leadership teams at firms such as Microsoft, J&J, Citibank, L'Oreal, United Technologies, Kraft, and Experian to design innovative business   strategies that disrupt markets and unlock new growth. 

As Marc Speichert of Google (formerly CMO L'Oreal USA) says, "Kaihan provides practical methods to systematically analyze and intelligently manage the competition. This does not mean copying or even responding to the competition. It means precisely the opposite."
