    Rohit Bhargava is an innovation and marketing expert, skilled facilitator, and keynote speaker. After a successful 15 year career as a brand and marketing strategist at two of the largest agencies in the world (Ogilvy and Leo Burnett), Rohit became an entrepreneur and has since started three companies.

    He is the Wall Street Journal best selling author of five books on topics as wide ranging as the future of business and building a brand with personality and has delivered sold out keynote presentations and workshops to business leaders in 32 countries. His signature book Non-Obvious is updated annually with 15 new trend predictions, has been read and shared by more than 1 million readers and is translated in ten languages. Rohit has been invited to share his insights at some of the most forward-looking organizations in the world including Intel, NASA, Disney, JP Morgan Chase, LinkedIn, Microsoft, American Express, BP, the World Bank, Coca-Cola and hundreds of others.

    Outside of his consulting work, Rohit also teaches his popular signature course on storytelling and marketing at Georgetown University in Washington DC and has been invited to deliver guest lectures at many other prestigious schools including Stanford and Wharton. For the past 14 years Rohit has also been writing his personal “Influential Marketing Blog” which has been featured in global media and named one of the top 25 marketing blogs in the world by AdAge magazine.

    "Bhargava made much of how important it was to curate one’s own ideas rather than simply collecting and regurgitating those of others. With that in mind, therefore, this reporter is taking a leaf from his book by curating a list of his own top takeaways from what was a highly entertaining and insightful talk on the opening day of SXSW Interactive 2019. Guess what? This list only includes six!"
    --John Holden, SXSW Interactive

    "Rohit thank you again for contributing to the success of our Sage Impact Leadership Summit!  It was an absolute pleasure working with you.  Our attendees are still talking about your fantastic presentation and how much they enjoyed it.  From my years of planning there are speakers who run in and deliver and leave.  There are speakers who say “customize” and then do little of that.  Not only did you deliver, customize and stayed around to visit with our attendees, but you did so in a way that exceeded our expectations.  When speaking with our group it felt like you were a part of the team because you connected so well with everyone.  I overheard individuals say things like. “What a great presenter!”, “I want to be that guys best friend.”, “What a creative and smart presentation that was.”  You should think about marketing yourself not just as a “speaker” but as an “experience”, and a great one at that!   You have amazing energy, a great sense of humor and very relevant and interesting messages to share.  I look forward to working with you again in the near future."

    "While I'd remained "connected" to Rohit over the years, after first meeting him at Ogilvy 7-8 years ago, we ran into each other yesterday at an event. Not only was it great to see him, but his gracious, generous and "High EQ" style was as if we'd been close professional friends. That's important. Prior to our conversation, I sat in the event hall, as an audience member of many hundreds and listened to Rohit's keynote address. Rohit's deep knowledge, expertise, warm, personal style was evident to all of my table mates, and we each expressed our "a-ha! moment" as Rohit described "4 important" takeaways about thinking differently, "non obvious" trends, curating ideas, and predicting the future. I learned much, but I also learned about Rohit, and want to leave a recommendation for Rohit as an expert in branding, data analysis, "non obvious" trends, storytelling, and business strategy, but also a great person. Thanks again, Rohit, for an excellent keynote, and for being such a decent, thoughtful person.  Rohit is a perfect combination of professionalism and knowledge in this day and age of brevity and superficiality."
