Amir Ghannad, author of The Transformative Leader, is a captivating and sought-after keynote speaker on the topic of leadership development and culture transformation. He does not believe in cookie-cutter messages and tailors every presentation to the unique needs of the audience.



Let’s face it — We all know many of the timeless and universal principles of leadership. The value that a great speaker brings comes from understanding the audience, their goals and challenges, selecting the right content, and presenting it in a style and language that resonates with them and compels them to move beyond the constraints of the past and toward what’s possible. 


Rated the No.1 keynote presenter at the 2015 International Shingo Conference

I was waiting in line to discuss your presentation today but thought it would be better (line was long) to write to you instead. I didn’t see any other folks lining up to talk to the presenters in any other sessions and I know you struck a chord!
