Marcia Conner advises executives in some of the world's largest companies on how to unite technologies, analytics, and human power into the energy that drives best-around-the-globe performance. Often brought in as a "fixer," she quickly aligns collaborative strategies with organization culture and amends skill shortages to radically change the speed of innovation.

She has been quoted on the BBC and World News This Morning, and in The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and Forbes. Former Vice President and Information Futurist at PeopleSoft and Worldwide Manager at Microsoft, she is a fellow of the Batten Institute at the Darden School of Business, a member of Telefónica's Disruptive Council, and contributes to Fast Company. Marcia has published three books. Her next one will be about human ingenuity.
