Hire Whitney Johnson and Teach Your Team To Be Disruptive


Nobody likes disruption – except when it comes to innovating in the business industry, and that’s what Whitney Johnson can motivate your team to do.


Johnson was one of the co-founders of Rose Park Advisors, where she worked on a seed round for Korea’s Coupang, a company that is now worth more than 5 billion dollars. Prior to that, she was an Institutional Investor-ranked equity research analyst for eight years, and Starmine named her a superior stock-picker.


Johnson currently contributes to the Harvard Business Review, and is a Linked influencer. She has authored two books, and was named one of Fortune 55’s most influential women on Twitter. She is also a co-founder of the Forty Women Over Forty to Watch, and she’s a fellow at the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards.


Recognized as one of the world’s most influential management thinkers last year, Johnson is known for her work on taking personal disruption and using it to drive corporate innovation. And if you think your team needs to learn what it means to be a market disruptor, you can book her to speak through The Sweeney Agency.


Being a market disruptor is a simple idea, but it really is powerful.  Companies who find a way to disrupt markets do something different. They notice a space in the market, and they find a unique way to fill it. Because Johnson is an expert in using disruption to drive innovation, she can clearly demonstrate how powerful it can be. Daring to innovate in this way can do wonders for a company, and it means dreaming big and taking risks. Johnson will share her knowledge and stories of disruption with your team, and help you reinvent your organization’s whole way of thinking. She uses her background in investment and venture firms to offer a fresh outlook on the industry, and what a simple idea can do to make the most of it.


After her talk, Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work, the audience will be left with tips and steps for how to innovate within an organization, how to reap the benefits of their personal S-curve, use that S-curve to understand the psychology of disruption, and how different variables can slow and progress innovation.


Johnson has given this talk to a wide range of audiences and companies, including SAP, Frito-Lay, Hubspot, AARP and the Social Security Administration.
