Short Bio

Nick Jankel is a sought-after and highly-regarded professional international keynote speaker who inspires, motivates, and empowers people all over the world to forge the future of their sector and space—rather than fail it. He works to eliminate the confusions of our times as a futurist with clarity; take the pain out of necessary business/digital/sustainable transformation; blast through the barriers that block innovation and change; and transform the challenges of teams and cultures by galvanizing creativity, energy, and action where they count most. Nick has worked with senior leaders from organizations like HSBC, Boots Walgreens, Unilever, Diageo, Google, Nike, Merck, Wal-Mart, NHS; led systemic change programs with WWF and Oxfam; worked with entrepreneurs and social innovators on 4 continents; and lectured at world-class universities including Yale, Oxford, SciencesPo, UCL, and London Business School.
Nick has amassed a vast array of hard-won insights into transformation, innovation, and leadership. He has spent over 20 years working with C-Suite leaders and fast-growth entrepreneurs on the frontlines of disruption, designing and delivering 100+ strategic innovation and business transformation projects to drive exponential value and disrupt markets. Uniquely in the space, he has also spent 15 years unlocking the potential of leaders to be able to conceive of, and then deliver, game-changing ideas, coaching and developing 70,000+ changemakers to evolve their cognitive complexity and embodied wisdom so they can successfully wrestle breakthroughs from the jaws of chaos, challenge, and crisis—and then execute them.
Working on both the outer game of innovation competence and the inner game of leadership consciousness, Nick’s life’s works has been to crack the code of transformation for individuals and enterprises. A Cambridge-educated medic, Nick has spent 30 years of relentless research and experimentation co-developing a cutting-edge, yet highly-accessible, neuroscience-led methodology and toolset for leading transformation as fast as humanly possible. Nick was chosen to host his own global BBC TV series as a transformational coach; is often interviewed on transformational tech on international news; and has advised No.10 Downing Street on transformational innovation.
