Alan Gregerman

President and Chief Innovation Officer

Alan Gregerman is a highly-respected and award-winning author, business consultant, teacher, keynote speaker, community volunteer, and all-around nice guy.

His work, research, and writing focus on helping companies and organizations to unlock the genius in all of their people in order to innovate, grow, and deliver the most compelling value to their customers

Alan’s three books—The Necessity of Strangers, Surrounded by Geniuses, and Lessons from the Sandbox—challenge our thinking about people, the world around us, where brilliant ideas actually come from, and how to reach our full potential as individuals, leaders, and organizations.

“Alan has been called one of the most original thinkers in business today” and “the Robin Williams of business consulting.”

The Necessity of Strangers

Alan’s latest book, The Necessity of Strangers, is all about the power of connecting with and learning from people who are very different than us as the key to greater innovation, collaboration, and success.
