Whitney Johnson

2017 Speaker

WHITNEY JOHNSON is recognized as one of the fifty leading business thinkers in the world (Thinkers50). She is an expert on disruptive innovation and personal disruption, specifically, a framework which she codifies in the critically acclaimed book Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work and the upcoming book Build an “A” Team: Play To Their Strengths and Lead Them Up the Learning Curve (Harvard Business Press, 2018).
