Harrington, an Original Shark on ABC’s SHARK TANK, Inventor of the Infomercial, and a pioneer of the "As Seen On TV" Industry, has launched over 500 products resulting in more than $5 Billion in sales worldwide. At OktoberTEK 2016, Harrington will be speaking about fostering this Culture of Corporate Innovation and Intrapreneurship to help business owners and executives accelerate their business.

As a “Disruption Leader”, Kevin introduces corporations and organizations to comprehensive strategies that will help them leverage their #1 innovation asset – their employees. Corporations, Organizations and Universities who have experienced the power of Fostering a Culture Innovation and Intrapreneurship realized it is a market differentiator in both retaining top talent and being able to surge ahead of their competitors. AT&T, Pfizer, Concur Technologies and Microsoft are just a few of the corporations who have directly benefited from Kevin’s game-changing approach to collaborative innovation. Kevin believes that innovation is everyone’s job and that empowering the intrapreneurial spirit in a team will give companies the lead on their competition.

“What I propose is a radical and new alternative for the business world that is a trilogy of relational behaviors—Cooperation, Collaboration and Co-creation,” says Harrington. “It’s a new relational value system that takes the focus off of pure compensation and forces companies to think, act and operate differently.”
