Improvisational innovation and ‘The risk factor’

The Risk Factor | Deborah Perry Piscione | TEDxHarkerSchool


Deborah Perry Piscione knows how to build organisations into innovation machines. She has uncovered the DNA from the inspired cultures of the most innovative companies in the world and how these companies adapt to the demands of an increasingly fast paced, agile, and unforgiving world.

We all know that great leaders are defined by the extraordinary people that they lead. Deborah also believes that innovative leaders of organisations that build systems that grow the passions of their talented workforce are more productive, more innovative, more loyal, and consistently move faster than competitors.  Deborah helps organisations utilise these under realised assets – their talent workforce – and she helps these organisations build systems that unlock their full potential. She also helps leaders prepare for the future.

Deborah’s discoveries are highlighted by her series of critically acclaimed books:
All of these books focus on the differences between old school power and new school leadership, which Deborah understands well through first-hand experience.

She has worked as an insider at the White House and Capitol Hill and also in Silicon Valley, this was where she was struck by the vast differences in power and leadership between the two coasts. In Silicon Valley she became fascinated by the collaborative cultures of innovation that dominate the region, especially the voracious appetite for growing value from ideas.
This spurred her to launch five successful businesses. This spurred her to launch four successful businesses and she is currently launching her fifth, Nobiyo Freshwear (under-apparel for women). Another, Alley to the Valley, has grown into the most influential program for connecting powerful business women.

Her clients include Google, McKinsey, TED Talks, Cadence Design, London School of Economics, Microsoft, McDonald’s, WOBI/HSM, NetApp, Princeton University, KPMG, Innotown, Qualcomm, Society for Human Resource Management, Stanford University, Accenture, Texas Economic Development Council, Singularity University Council on Foreign Relations, and many others.  Provocative and wonderfully entertaining, Deborah’s presentations (and boot camps for Fortune 500 leaders) are a prerequisite for leaders looking to shake the status quo.
