Can large, established, and already successful companies–industry leaders–continue to innovate and grow at the rate of startups? Alberto Savoia does not believe it’s possible. He knows it’s possible! Because it’s happening. Because he knows how to make it happen.
As Google’s first Engineering Director, Alberto Savoia led the launch of the phenomenally profitable Google AdWords. He then shifted his focus. He wanted to make sure that success and exponential growth would not destroy Google’s original entrepreneurial and innovative spirit–the sad fate of almost all companies once they reach a certain size. As Google’s Innovation Agitator, Alberto forged, tested and perfected a powerful set of tools and techniques that established company can use to become Apex Innovators: market leaders that innovate with the same speed, daring and agility of the best startups–pretotyping was born.
News of the dramatic impact and results from Alberto’s pretotyping teachings, quickly spread beyond Google. Stanford and many of the world’s largest companies began to regularly kidnap Alberto from the Google campus so they could learn from him. From the first Stanford “Innovate Like A Startup. Go To Market Like A Grownup” workshop in 2011, to today’s “Rise Of The Apex Innovators”, Alberto’s seminars and workshops have consistently–and without exception– received the highest possible ratings from CEOs, senior managers, and hands-on innovators at all levels and in all functions. More importantly, they have resulted in deep and lasting impact on innovation at all levels of the company.
As a compelling and highly- engaging speaker, teacher, and hands-on innovator, Alberto is in constant demand as he keeps representing entrepreneurial innovation at Google. In addition, he’s currently collaborating with Stanford University where he’s teaching, coaching and further developing his unique set of innovation tools and techniques. Alberto’s dedication and contributions to innovation have been recognized with many industry awards over the years, including the prestigious 2005 Wall Street Journal Technical Innovator Awards.
If you want to understand Apex Innovators–and how to become one of them–Alberto has the tools, know-how, and drive to help you succeed.
