Rohit Bhargava is a trend curator, innovation and marketing expert, and author of six best-selling books (including the Wall Street Journal bestseller Non-Obvious). As founder of the Non-Obvious Company, he focuses on marketing disruption and innovation in the world, helping individuals and businesses learn how to be more interesting by focusing on things that are … well … not-so-obvious. 

His books cover a wide range of topics that include the future of business, branding with personality, and why leaders always eat left-handed. Previously, he spent 15 years as a marketing strategist for international heavyweights like Leo Burnett and Ogilvy. He also manages to squeeze in time to lecture at Georgetown University (with a hugely popular course that explores the connections between marketing and storytelling) and speaks to sold-out audiences into the tens of thousands.
