Full Presenter Profile & Bio

If you're after the type of speaker you would usually book, you aren't going to find him here! Nils is as unusual as they come. Nils Vesk is the quintessential go to man for organisations looking for money making thinking and energised people who get stuff done.

Nils is a professional designer but you won't find him designing your office layout or your company website. For the last 18 years Nils has been applying the process of design thinking to the business of generating and realising ideas. His clients include the worlds fastest growing companies who use Nils as a virtual think tank and change catalyst for accelerating business growth through innovation.

He's strategic but stops at number crunching, he's mentored Australia's most successful entrepreneurs yet stopped at becoming a venture capitalist and his fast thinking is in higher demand than instant coffee. Of course he's published books and been on TV but more importantly he wants to collaborate with you!

Nils began his careers as an urban designer, creating amusement parks and towns in Asia, but in the process became concerned with his colleagues inability to perform under pressure. So Nils became a personal trainer and yoga teacher, and went on to write his internationally-published book, Life's Little Toolbox as a foundation to help teach people how to utilise stress to get things done.

Nils' core services are often described as 'innovation to go'. Nils has a number of keynotes, workshops, and consulting services that are primarily focused on helping organisations innovate and create innovation from blueprint to bottom line.
