Vivek Bedi

Product Advisor

An engineer by education and entrepreneur by trade, I am obsessed over pioneering initiatives that will change the way we work, live, and communicate. I've spent my career focusing on people, innovation, and technology — the ingredients that I believe are fundamental to building a successful business. I'm an experienced leader with the unique combination of deep product management expertise, disruptive executive leadership, and a portfolio of motivational keynotes that have inspired thousands of individuals. Over my career journey, I have had the fortunate privilege of driving explosive change across Fortune 100 companies as well as rapidly scaling multiple startups to reach success. Having led in both environments has taught me the lesson of blending aspects of the best of both cultures together, which is the key to a winning business strategy. I am passionate about sharing these lessons on stage so others can benefit from my experiences.
