"This new partnership brings the perfect combination of two focal points, growth and innovation, to our work with today's companies." — Peter Sheahan, Founder and CEO, Karrikins Group
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) September 22, 2016
Companies looking to hone their competitive edge by creating innovative, growth-enabled organizations will experience an energy surge from a new partnership between Karrikins Group and innovation expert Josh Linkner’s Institute for Applied Creativity. The alliance greatly enhances the company’s ability to build growth-enabled organizations across the world, says Peter Sheahan, CEO and Founder of Karrikins Group. Linkner becomes Karrikins Group’s Managing Director for the Innovation Practice.
“Josh Linkner is a world-renowned thought leader who has catalyzed innovation in many iconic companies,” says Sheahan. “This creates brings perfect combination of two vital focal points, growth and innovation, to our work with today’s companies. Without innovation, there is no growth. And without growth-enabled culture and leadership, there is no innovation. In this ever-disrupted business climate, this partnership is a no-brainer.”
The partnership creates a cutting-edge brain trust that gives ambitious clients greater strategic advantage. “We are excited to join forces with Karrikins Group and integrate our work in the area of innovation with their capability in creating growth-enabled organizations,” Linkner says. “With the added global scale of Karrikins Group, we’ll collectively increase the impact we have for our clients and ensure they grow and remain relevant in the face of significant disruption.”
Karrikins Group is a highly sought-after consulting firm with more than 120 staff in five countries. It partners with companies that want to boost growth, transform communities, and change behavior. “We enable our clients to grow in today’s unprecedented climate of nonstop change,” notes Sheahan. ”As disruption accelerates, companies need to get on the offensive or risk irrelevance.”
Both Sheahan and Linkner are bestselling authors, with six books between them. Their clients include powerhouse organizations such as American Express, Apple, AT&T, Cardinal Health, The Coca-Cola Company, De Beers, Fidelity Investments, Microsoft, Mondelēz International, Intel, and SAP.
Josh Linkner is also a four-time entrepreneur whose companies sold for a combined $200 million. He’s a hyper-growth CEO, venture capitalist, and in-demand keynote speaker on a mission to drive creativity, innovation, and reinvention. He is Founding Partner of Detroit Venture Partners, investing in and mentoring more than 100 startups. He twice was the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and he received the Champion of Change award from President Barack Obama. A regular columnist for Forbes, The Detroit Free Press, and Inc. Magazine, Linkner also has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, CNN, and The New York Times.
“It’s time to break through complacency — and spark creativity and immediate, meaningful growth,” says Sheahan. “Too many organizations are sitting in the corner hoping disruption will pass them by. Meanwhile growth is stalled, innovation is lackluster, and morale is low. It’s time to get serious. That’s what combining Karrikins Group and the Institute are all about: Outcomes that are 10 times faster and less expensive than traditional consulting practices, and actionable results that don’t die in PowerPoint decks.”
