Rohit Bhargava Speaker Biography


Rohit Bhargava is on a mission to inspire more non-obvious thinking in the world. He is the 3-time Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of 10 books and is widely considered one of the most entertaining and original speakers on trends, innovation and marketing in the world.

Rohit has been invited to deliver sold-out keynotes and workshops in 32 countries around the world to change the way teams and leaders think at the World Bank, NASA, Intel, Novartis, Coldwell Banker, MetLife, American Express, Pizza Hut, Schwab, Disney and hundreds of other well-known organizations.  He has been a Featured Speaker at 5 previous SXSW events and also did a keynote at SXSW Sydney in 2023 (the first SXSW outside of America!).

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur and founding two companies, he spent 15 years leading brand strategy at Ogilvy (Global) and Leo Burnett (Australia) where he advised global brands on human behavior, marketing, and storytelling.

Outside his speaking and consulting, Rohit has taught persuasive speaking and global marketing as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, is frequently quoted in the global media and writes a monthly column for Inc Magazine about Non-Obvious books, hosts a podcast, and has been writing his award-winning email newsletter for the past six years.  At the end of every year, he also leads a program called the Inc Non-Obvious Book Awards where he selects the most fascinating books of the year for business people.

He is a lifelong fan of anything having to do with the Olympics (he’s been to five so far), and actively hates cauliflower (yuck!). Outside of work, Rohit believes that the most entertaining and impactful job he will ever have is being a great dad and teaching his two boys to be kind when no one expects it, curious about the things others take for granted, and confident enough to change the world.

INNOVATION
How to be a Non-Obvious Thinker (and See What Others Miss)
See What Others Miss and Shift Your Perspective

When every day brings constant disruption, it’s hard to know where to focus. With the right mindset, we can look to the future with informed optimism. In this candid and fast-paced session based on the bestselling book that has inspired more than 1 million readers, trend curator Rohit Bhargava will reveal the five habits of non-obvious thinkers that can help you become a “speed understander” who can see the opportunities others don’t, be more resilient and lead the future.


MARKETING
The Art and Science of Non-Obvious Marketing (In a Skeptical World)

Be more believable, persuasive and trustworthy.
We are living in a time when it is harder to earn trust than ever before. People skip ads, mistrust brands and demand transparency from the companies they buy from or work for. What does it take for any organization to be more believable? In this entertaining and eye-opening talk, renowned marketing expert and bestselling author Rohit Bhargava will reveal the five “non-obvious” secrets of building trust and what it really takes to stand out as real, human, authentic and trustworthy in a skeptical world.

TRENDS
7 Non-Obvious Trends Shaping the Future Normal: What are the world-changing trends that will actually shape the future?

From biophilic skyscrapers to generative AI to haptic interfaces, this keynote will offer a clear-eyed overview of not only the technology changing our world, but also explore the deeply human questions all this advancement will raise. This is not a boring academic talk or “futurist theater.” Instead, it's a highly actionable (and deeply non-obvious!) glimpse into how you can anticipate and lead the future.

DIVERSITY
The Non-Obvious Method To Leading Diversity (When It's Not Your Day Job)
How Leaders Can Actually Make Diversity & Inclusion Happen

This keynote offers an approachable introduction to diversity and inclusion for busy leaders. Inspired by the world’s most ambitious gathering of diversity experts at the Beyond Diversity Summit and the WSJ bestselling book Beyond Diversity, this talk is specifically for leaders who don’t spend all day working on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Instead of blaming and shaming or focusing on a long list of “-isms,” this optimistic keynote candidly approaches some of the biggest myths and realities of diversity while offering practical suggestions to actually build a more inclusive and diverse team.
