Robert Tucker Biography

Robert B. Tucker is an award-winning global futurist and innovation keynote speaker whose client list includes over 200 Fortune 500 companies.

President and founder of Innovation Resource Consulting Group based in Santa Barbara, California, Tucker is an internationally recognized pioneer in the field of strategic innovation. His high energy, multi-media keynote speeches lead audiences on a journey of possibility and encourage leaders to tackle even the biggest challenges they and their organizations face in a period of unprecedented and disruptive change. Through stories of both successes and messes from his travels, Tucker challenges audiences to think bigger and go bolder about their opportunity future and to master what he calls “the mindset, skillset and toolset” that enables today’s leaders to successfully face the driving forces of change, instead of being marginalized because they missed the moment.

During his 30-year career, Tucker has been invited to lecture in 54 countries and every state in the United States. Economic development groups in Singapore, Dubai, Mexico, and Morocco have turned to him for thought leadership. He has advised companies such as Microsoft, American Express, and Citibank, as well as over 400 trade and professional associations and customer groups, on how to create future-ready cultures that thrive no matter which way the wind blows.

A multi-year winner of the Top Five Speaker Hall of Fame, Tucker’s pioneering research in identifying the critical attributes of innovators became the acclaimed book "Winning the Innovation Game." Former Intel Chairman Andrew Grove described Tucker’s international bestseller "Managing the Future: 10 Driving Forces of Change" as a “lucid, practical guide to total quality in business.” In "Driving Growth Through Innovation," Tucker delved into the emerging best practices of companies pioneering radically more effective approaches to developing cultures of innovation. In his latest book, "Innovation Is Everybody’s Business: Making Yourself Indispensable in Today’s Hyper-competitive World," Tucker takes up the issue of leadership development and reveals the innovation skills essential to success in today’s hyper-change era.

Tucker was recently awarded the prestigious Brand Personality Award by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation for outstanding contributions to the field of innovation. He is a contributing columnist to Forbes and has appeared on Channel News Asia, CNBC India, PBS, CBS Radio, and was a featured guest on the CNBC series "The Business of Innovation."
