FORMER PROCTER & GAMBLE EXECUTIVE
Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America’s true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher, and one of the world’s most highly rated speakers. He is acknowledged in numerous books and periodicals and by savvy successful corporate executives everywhere as the foremost leader in change management. It was Lou Pritchett who changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “Partnering”.
Creating the Future
Lou Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history as an “Agent of Change” at P&G. He stood at the vanguard of corporate futurists to challenge a hidebound corporate giant to face the future by creating the future, thus ensuring its continuing role as one of America’s great corporate success stories.
A White Water Ride Into History
It was Lou Pritchett who, in 1987, boldly engineered an adventuresome partnership between two corporate titans. Lou Pritchett talked Sam Walton, the founder and Chairman of Wal-Mart, into getting into a canoe to ride the rapids of the South Fork of the Spring River in Arkansas. By the end of that white water ride, these two visionaries had agreed to change the way America did business. In 1989, Lou retired from his post at P&G to spread the Gospel of Change.
The Real Secret of Success
Over the last ten years, Lou Pritchett has become one of America’s most popular speakers on customer partnering, change management and the growing importance of the human factor in the tidal wave of 21st century technology. His presentations, always delivered with humor and enthusiasm, have inspired long-established Fortune 500 companies and upstart entrepreneurs alike. He has bought his message of corporate success to companies throughout the USA and around the world…big and small, old and new, to those making five million and those making 50 billion, to companies that have been around 100 days and those that have survived 100 years. Those companies and affiliated organizations all have learned from Lou Pritchett how to survive and succeed by leading change in an unforgiving world of global economic revolution.
The Global Perspective
His visits with corporate executives around the world have given Lou a unique perspective on business in today’s global economy. He brings his own wisdom and experience to the podium and shares what he has mined from the combined knowledge of hundreds of America’s greatest corporate minds to create a singular, memorable learning experience that is unequalled in power and scope. Every business that is serious about meeting the challenges of the 21st century needs to hear what Lou Pritchett has to say.
If Lou Pritchett could teach Sam Walton a thing or two, imagine what he can do for you!

A great job! A powerful start to our meeting! I heard nothing but raves about Lou Pritchett’s speech to our members—many of whom are not easily impressed by business speakers. His content, delivery and energy were all outstanding! As outstanding as Lou was on the podium, I was even more impressed by his attention to and focus on my needs as the meeting planner. In my eyes, he differentiated himself from 99% of the competition in this regard.
