FutureThink CEO Lisa Bodell ranks among the Top 50 Speakers Worldwide and is the best-selling author of Kill the Company and Why Simple Wins. She’s a global expert on simplification and innovation, who inspires audiences to stop their old ways of working so they can do more work that truly matters.

A thought leader and serial entrepreneur, Bodell's transformational message has inspired executives at top-ranked organizations such as Google, Novartis, Citigroup, LinkedIn, and CVS/Aetna. Her provocative yet practical approach enables leaders and their teams to eliminate the unnecessary complexity and time-sucks that hold them back and make simplicity their competitive advantage.

Bodell is a monthly contributor to Forbes and has frequently appeared in Fast Company, WIRED, The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, and more. She's been featured in many major books such as Warren Berger’s A More Beautiful Question, Adam Grant’s Originals, and After Shock, the 50-year celebration of futurist Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock.

Bodell has taught at both American University and Fordham University and has a TED talk on the topic of simplification. She's served on the board of advisors of several organizations, including the Global Agenda Council for the World Economic Forum, the United States National Security Agency, the Association of Professional Futurists, and the Novartis board of Culture, Diversity & Inclusion.

This kick-started her journey towards self-love and embracing her Authentic Self. She spent hundreds of hours on healing and self-love, quit her job, got her MBA, started her own business, and dedicated her life to helping others embrace authenticity - and she's never looked back.

Authenticity for Ritu means embracing her imperfections, loving hard even though she's had her heart broken a bazillion times, and embracing all aspects of herself— the good, the bad, and the ugly. It means taking care of herself so that she can live her best and give her best to others. It means wearing funky clothes, dancing it up to Bhangra and Soca music, and laughing really loud.

It also means speaking up about injustice and using her actions to interrupt the oppression that permeates society.

But most importantly, authentic living for her is about creating a world where everyone feels like they can do this too. She wants you to live your best, most authentic and empowered life, even in the face of experiencing oppression and other life challenges. This is your fundamental right in life.
