Nils Vesk's Biography

A self confessed innovation junkie, Nils spots innovation successes from around the globe, deconstructs them and then couples them with his latest innovation strategies to accelerate business growth. Nils Vesk is an expert in Innovation, Idea generation and design thinking.

 

Nils Vesk has been applying, teaching, and researching innovation around the world for over 18 years. The key innovation problem he solves is that organisations have too few innovations and they are too far apart.

 

Nils’ research has identified that the major cause of this problem is that our biases get in the way of innovating. Simply put ‘what we see changes what we see’. This is human nature, except it often results in us filtering and making decisions we’re not even aware that we’ve made.

 

This is why Nils believes that every innovation expert you’ve ever heard speak, has been totally right yet totally wrong at the same time. Each expert (and everyone else) comes with a bias based on the professional roles they have had in their career.

 

Having spearheaded the science of diagnosing and prescribing critical innovation skills. Nils has reinvented the innovation process, through the use of innovation archetypes. By matching the right perception to a specific situation we can hatch the innovation.

 

Professionally trained as a designer Nils used ‘Design thinking’ as a key skill in becoming Australia’s pioneering ‘Innovation Architect’.  Nils is democratising innovation so that everyone, not just a select few, can create rapid commercial innovation that helps to create millions of dollars of additional revenue.

 

Nils is the author of the innovation book Innovation Archetypes: democratising innovation (2015), Ideas with Legs: how to generate and realise ideas (2011), Life's little toolbox: tips for a happier healthier you (2003) and co-author of Ideas: original perspectives on life and business from leading thinkers (2006).

Nils has delivered keynotes and workshops around the world from Tokyo to Munich. Whilst there’s many tailored topics that Nils speaks on, the topics he’s most in demand for, revolve around applying innovation. That being said he’s spoken on future trends, design thinking, process improvement and stress utilisation to name just a few.
