Deborah Perry Piscione is an authority on how leaders are changing the mindsets of their companies and driving unprecedented innovation and growth as a result.
Her intriguing work stems from the stark differences between old-school power and new school leadership. Having worked as an insider at the White House and Capitol Hill, and then moving into the centre of Silicon Valley, Deborah was struck by the vast differences in mindsets between the two coasts. She became fascinated by the collaborative cultures of innovation that dominate the Silicon Valley region, especially the voracious appetite for growing value from ideas. Provocative and wonderfully entertaining, Deborah’s presentations are a prerequisite for leaders looking to shake the status quo.
Through her years of research and hands-on work with many of Silicon Valley’s pioneer companies, she has found the keys to building organisations into innovation machines and preparing leaders for the future. Deborah’s discoveries are highlighted by her series of critically acclaimed books:
- Secrets of Silicon Valley: What Everyone Else Can Learn from the Innovation Capital of the World
- The Risk Factor: Why Every Organisation Needs Big Bets, Bold Characters, and the Occasional Spectacular Failure
- The People Equation: Why Innovation Is People, Not Products
This spurred her to launch four successful businesses, including Alley to the Valley, which has grown into the most influential program for connecting powerful business women. It is this unique experience and understanding that has made her one of the most sought-after business speakers today. With companies and industries looking for every new customer, every new idea, every advantage they can find, Deborah specialises in opening new ways of thinking and executing that unlock the organisation’s full potential. Both her keynotes and her boot camps for Fortune 500 leaders are fully customised for your very specific needs.
Her clients include Google, McKinsey, TED Talks, Cadence Design, London School of Economics, Microsoft, McDonald’s, WOBI/HSM, NetApp, Princeton University, KPMG, Innotown, Qualcomm, Society for Human Resource Management, Stanford University, Accenture, Texas Economic Development Council, Singularity University Council on Foreign Relations, and many others.
Ultimately, Deborah Perry Piscione is the perfect speaker if you are searching for an undeniably compelling presentation exploring how to adapt to the demands of an increasingly fast paced, agile, and unforgiving world.
