Disruptive Innovation is Every Company’s Business
Dr. Soren Kaplan’s keynote speaking focuses on a single theme: innovation. Having worked across industries including technology, consumer products, financial services, healthcare, hospitality, media & entertainment, and many others, Soren tailors his keynotes to his audience’s specific definition of “innovation” – which can range from incremental to the disruptive innovations that change the game. He also frequently leads and facilitates collaborative working sessions and breakouts following his keynotes – something that sets him apart from other traditional speakers.

In addition to these keynote presentations and others like them, he often tailors his message by sharing emerging trends, case examples, and strategies for driving disruptive innovation and change within specific business functions or industries like healthcare, financial services, and design.
