We're very excited to share that Leading Authorities is now exclusively representing former president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America Inc., Reggie Fils-Aimé, for lectures.


Fils-Aimé is revered by business leaders and gaming fans alike for helping bring Nintendo’s greatest successes – including the Nintendo DS, the Wii, and the Nintendo Switch – to the global marketplace. A proven expert on transforming companies, re-vitalizing brands, and reshaping industries, he is credited with revamping Nintendo’s public relations, bringing their “cool” factor back with unique products that no other game company had thought of.

Check out this Reggie appreciation video created by the International Video Game Hall of Fame and Museum:


The face and voice that defined Nintendo of America for 15 years, Fils-Aimé’s legacy has spawned record-breaking business results and internet-shattering memes. He’s played video games with Jimmy Fallon (see video below!) and been dubbed the ‘Regginator’ by fans. But it wasn’t always this way. The first American and African-American to hold his position, Fils-Aimé’s story is one of breaking barriers and breaking rules.


In speeches, Fils-Aimé shares his personal key principles that he has developed to thrive in an age of disruption. Relating these principles to his personal story and 35-year experience leading Nintendo and other fast-moving businesses, Fils-Aimé provides actionable strategies for audiences in any industry to stay ahead of disruption, solve daunting business challenges, and even achieve ‘the impossible.’


  • Next Generation Leadership Principles for Disruptive Innovation. According to Reggie Fils-Aimé, “everyone has the capacity to be a leader. It takes practice. It takes skill development. But everyone has that opportunity.” In this talk, Fils-Aimé provides his personal key principles of leadership that he has developed – including intellectual curiosity, courage in decision-making, and “irrefutable integrity” – to thrive in an age of disruption. 

  • The Innovator’s Rulebook for Breaking the Rules. Innovation doesn’t just happen. Organizations needs to build capability and capacity to innovate across the entire enterprise.  In this talk, Fils-Aimé shares seven principles he’s honed from his 35+ year career driving innovation across the packaged-good, restaurant, and media/entertainment industries. Audiences will get actionable advice for increasing their ability to innovate and learn how to leverage these principles across any industry. 

  • How to Change the Game and Win.

At Nintendo of America, he turned around an iconic brand leading to record-breaking sales for the Nintendo DS, Wii, and Nintendo Switch systems. He also revamped Nintendo’s messaging and brand positioning, while maintaining its brand identity.
