Dr. Rozen is one of the most booked speakers on leadership through change.

She is humorous, engaging and provides real strategies to change our lives, accomplish our goals and become the best version of ourselves, personally and professionally, in a rapidly changing world.

Charlie Garland
Charlie is a behavioral engineer – designing companies, products, processes, and content that focus around innovation. His latest endeavor is a coaching process that helps make innovative thinking -- and, thus, innovative behavior -- a reliable, measurable habit. It combines models and methods created by BJ Fogg, PhD (professor at Stanford University), integrated with cognitive-behavioral elements of major innovation processes, including Design Thinking, Creative Problem Solving, Agile, Lean, and many more.

Mr. Garland defines innovation in the following way: "the process of creating and delivering new value, for one or more stakeholders, through the unique use of available resources." You may choose to define it differently; if so, he is interested in understanding your rationale and context. Mr. Garland finds value in learning new insights from others, especially those with unique/diverse perspectives. His pragmatic definition has evolved via iterative refinement for over 15 years, and he’s found it to be especially empowering (and motivating) to others. Mr. Garland has also developed an innovation/critical-thinking tool that both triggers and guides innovative thinking, called "CubieTM." This is a tool that helps to increase your Cognitive Buoyancy®, which is an individual's propensity to access their "higher-order" (System 2) thinking -- a necessity for innovative thinking.
