Award-winning, Cambridge-educated thought leader (and serial entrepreneur) Nick Jankel develops original ideas and powerful tools to ensure organizations and their leaders can metabolize change and turn it into exponential value and breakthrough impact. Nick is not simply interested in what the future holds but how we can all forge a thriving future with conscious leadership and innovation. Nick inspires people with the limitless opportunities on offer within the networked age – from disruptive business models and org cultures to future cities and styles of leadership - as well as how to leave behind industrialage thinking to become agile and entrepreneurial enough to seize them. He warns that those that don’t switch on like this will fail their own future due to unstoppable change.

At the pinnacle of leadership thinking having dedicated his life to understanding the liquid leadership needed to thrive in a VUCANDS world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous, Networked, Disrupted and Stressed), Nick has advised organizations as diverse as Novartis, Nike, No.10 Downing Street, Oxfam, Genentech, Intel, lendlease, HSBC, Unilever and the BBC. He has also spoken at LEGO, Google, RBS, Roche, Aspen Ideas Festival and global Economist Innovation Summits amongst scores more.

Nick’s advanced leadership and innovation methodology, painstakingly forged over 25 years into the Switch On Way, provides a rigorous pathway for unleashing transformational change - AKA breakthroughs - in any area of business or society. It provides leaders with the tools, skills and qualities they need to seize the opportunities within the “triple threat” of global risks (like climate change), new technologies (like 4th Industrial Revolution blockchain and AI), and our shifting culture (towards empowerment, diversity and purpose). Nick helps leaders cut through treacle to make change happen, takes the pain out of business transformation and blasts through the barriers that block breakthrough innovation.

A former elite medic, Nick draws on the latest neurobiology to show that every audience member was born for breakthrough but that old beliefs, habits and fears get in their way. He uses enlightening insights and real-life stories to empower creativity, plants seeds of change and provoke people to switch on. He customizes every talk and has over 70 proprietary tools and experiential exercises to drive maximum impact of the event. Nick hosted his own BBC TV series, has been featured in the FT and The Sunday Times, and taught at London Business School, Oxford and Yale. He obtained a Triple 1st Class degree in Medicine & Philosophy from Cambridge University and is the author of a number of books on creativity and leadership including the international bestseller Switch On: Unleash Your Creativity With the New Science & Spirit of Breakthrough.
