Tom is a speaker, consultant and author who helps companies grow by collaboratively helping them innovate their business and product development. He’s helped large organizations act nimbly and helped small companies scale. He’s been a participant in two global technology revolutions—and has been part of some remarkable success stories (and some misfires). He lived aboard an ocean research ship and tended to the mini-sub (Cousteau was on the Board), wrestled in the Olympic trials, and helped oversee the redesign and fabrication of the largest composite hovercraft ever built in the US.
Tom is the author of the book Evolve or Die: Lessons for World-Class Innovation & Creativity. He resides in North Carolina and is an ultrarunner who envies Tom Hanks’s long run as Forrest Gump.
