Bill O’Connor is the Dean of the Vault Innovation Academy (VIA), focused on designing and directing innovation research, developing innovation analysis/insights, and developing innovative techniques.
He is also the Director of Vault Innovation Services (VIS), focused on working with large global companies; Silicon Valley tech giants, unicorns, and startups; and governments around the world, helping them to go beyond mere "innovation poetry" and to actually do real innovation.
Bill is also the Founder/Director of the Autodesk Innovation Genome Project, a 10-year research project and an evolving innovation methodology. Over the past seven years, Bill has delivered 500 innovation-related presentations and workshops to 200 companies/organizations from 40 countries around the world, including Facebook, Tesla, Airbnb, Google, Twitter, Starbucks, Nike, IKEA, Bechtel, Boeing, the US Naval Academy, the US DoD, and the World Bank.

Previously he was the Innovation Strategist at Autodesk in San Francisco, working with Autodesk's largest customers to help them to actually innovate (versus just talking about innovating).

He has 25 years of experience managing projects at the intersection of strategy, innovation, technology, and design, living and working in New York, London, Boston, and San Francisco.
