    Spark Your Innovation w/ Stephen Shapiro

    Spark Your Innovation w/ Stephen Shapiro

    Stephen Shapiro cultivates innovation by showing leaders and their teams how to approach, tackle and solve their business challenges. Applying the knowledge he has accrued over decades in the industry, Stephen is able to see what others can’t: opportunities to improve innovation models and the cultures that support them.

    The first innovation opportunity Stephen spotted was the opportunity to innovate within his own life. Halfway through his 15-year tenure at Accenture, while co-leading the company’s business process reengineering practice (focused on business efficiency), he realized he no longer wanted to be responsible for people losing their jobs. So he did exactly the opposite by building Accenture’s thriving 20,000-person process and innovation practice focused on growth and job creation.

Blue Star Scott ,

Shaun Jay is a blast !!!

Ever since Shaun Jay was referred to me for the great master magician, Jeff McBride, he has become a genuine, consistent delight in my life. I’ve hosted hundreds of luminaries, musicians and magicians on my online shows. Shaun is consistently one of the most popular with my audience. We are now enjoying his delightful podcast series and encourage everybody to check it out.

Verbal slight of hand

Shaun’s playful but pointed questions allows guest to go deep fast. It’s not overproduced, has smart guests, and does not drag.

In a sea of podcasts Ita a refreshing voice reminding us Magic is everywhere. Make Magic!
