I am unbelievably excited to announce Josh Linkner as one of our keynote speakers for JBITS 2020! He was at the very top of our wish list for speakers when we first began planning the Summit, and I am so glad that our theme of Disruption and the focus of our event resonated with him so that he wanted to be part of this event.

Here’s everything you need to know about Josh Linkner to understand why he is the perfect speaker for JBITS 2020, and why his message is perfect for leading your business into the future:
To Josh Linkner, creativity and innovation are the lifeblood of all human progress, and as such, he’s spent his career harnessing the spirit of creative disruption. The five-time successful tech entrepreneur, keynote speaker, and CEO delivers a clear call to action — it’s better to innovate and disrupt your organization before your competition does. The riskiest move companies can make today is hugging the status quo — believing the future will be like the past is the fast road to obsolescence.
Josh – who started his career as a jazz guitarist – personifies creativity, entrepreneurship, and disruptive innovation. He has been the founder and CEO of five tech companies, which sold for a combined value of over $200 million.
He is the author of four books, two New York Times Bestsellers: Disciplined Dreaming: A Proven System to Drive Breakthrough Creativity, and The Road to Reinvention: How to Drive Disruption and Accelerate Transformation, as well as his latest book, Hacking Innovation. He is also the Founding Partner of Detroit Venture Partners, investing in and mentoring over 100 startups.
Josh has twice been named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year and is a President Barack Obama Champion of Change award recipient. He is a regular columnist for Forbes, The Detroit Free Press, and Inc. Magazine. His work on innovation has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, CNN, and The New York Times. And yes, he still plays a mean jazz guitar.
Josh is a speaker you won’t want to miss—just one of many reasons JBITS 2020 is going to be the business leadership and technology event of the year. Grab your tickets now and join Josh and the rest of us on the journey to Disruption.
