Andrew Razeghi is adjunct associate professor at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. As a writer, educator, and adviser to organizations on creativity, innovation and leadership, his work spans industries, from consumer packaged goods to healthcare, tourism to media, and non-profit organizations to professional sports teams.

A few of his clients include Aurora Healthcare, Brinker International, Darden Restaurants, GE, GlaxoSmithKline, the Houston Texans, Motorola, Novartis, PepsiCo, Switzerland Tourism, and World Kitchen. Andrew speaks to thousands of people each year at trade association and organization events and has appeared in a number of media outlets including ABC-TV, Air America, The Chicago Sun-Times, China Daily, El Norte (Mexico), FAST COMPANY, NPR, The San Francisco Chronicle, and The San Jose Mercury News.

Prior to joining Kellogg, Andrew Razeghi taught the capstone MBA course on strategy and organization at The Graduate School of Business at Loyola University Chicago. Shortly after the fall of communism in Central Europe, he was invited to be among the first American professors to teach free market economics at The Prague University of Economics in Prague, Czech Republic. In addition to his work as an educator and adviser, Andrew is a review panelist for The Wright Centers of Innovation at The National Academies of Science in Washington, D.C.; a Thought Leader with Knowledge Dialogue; and an Advisory Board Member of Americans for Informed Democracy (AID), a non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization working to raise global awareness on more than 500 university campuses and in more than 10 countries.

Andrew Razeghi's newest book on innovation is entitled THE RIDDLE: WHERE IDEAS COME FROM AND HOW TO HAVE BETTER ONES (February 2008). In THE RIDDLE, Professor Razeghi explains how the common precursors to "Eureka moments" can be replicated in order to help people learn to become more innovative.

Hope - How Triumphant Leaders Create The Future:
Whether businesses face uncertainty or meet the challenge of the constant pressure to innovate, leaders must dig deep to keep their focus and stay effective. In his book and keynote presentation, Hope: How Triumphant Leaders Create The Future (2006), Andrew Razeghi isolates the critical factor that is a core element of successful leadership and business strategy in any climate. The book sheds new light on an ancient virtue by exploring why - in moments of uncertainty - some leaders succeed while others fail? Fundamentally, how do they make hope happen?

Using research from neuroscience and behavioral psychology, along with real world stories of CEOs, business start-ups, political leaders, groundbreaking scientists, and others, Razeghi shows that hope is a proven tool for competitive advantage. Andrew reveals a solid strategy that develops leadership skills and applies them to individuals, teams, and organizations.

This keynote presentation is rich in inspiring stories from business, politics, science, sports, art, religion, exploration, and philanthropy. Andrew also presents a wealth of thoughtful questions to ponder and exercises to help you learn to turn "hope" into an actionable and tangible tool.

Andrew's work is receiving rave reviews and has been endorsed by everyone from Cancer Survivor and Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong to best-selling authors Dr. Ken Blanchard and Dr. Jim Belasco, who calls "Hope" "...the trail blazing management book of our time!"

Business Unusual - Unleasing Creativity In Search Of Growth:
Have you ever asked yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?" - amazed by the obvious simplicity of a great idea. Or have you ever encountered a product or service and wondered, "What were they thinking?" - dumbfounded by the irrelevance of a failed idea? In his keynote presentation Business Unusual, Andrew shares the principles, secrets, and strategies of the world's greatest innovators in order to help audiences think of that!

Audiences will learn how to: unleash creativity as a competitive advantage; foster continuous innovation as an organization competency; and ultimately create new products, services, and strategies to help the organization grow.

The Riddle: Where Ideas Come From and How to Have Better Ones
In this fascinating keynote presentation, best-selling author Andrew Razeghi will share his research from his book, The Riddle, whereby he takes readers on a journey into the precise moment of creative insight known famously as the "Eureka moment." He will explain why it happens, when it happens, and most importantly -- what you can do to make it happen more often. As it turns out, "thinking differently" may be oversold. If you want to learn to be more innovative, you won't want to miss this talk.
