Tim Hurson

Tim is Disruptor in Residence for a wide range of institutions. His first public act of disruption was spreading pasted sheets of paper, sticky-side up, on his third-grade classroom floor. He now focuses on more productive activities as a speaker, author and innovation facilitator for businesses and start-ups in 37 countries. He has guest lectured at universities in Canada, US, UK, Denmark, Chile, and Australia. His book, Think Better, is a McGraw-Hill Business Classic, available in ten languages. He is a senior advisor for Oberlin College’s Innovation Studio and co-founder of Mindcamp which hosts annual conferences in Canada and Chile. Tim is recipient of the Creative Education Foundation’s Distinguished Leader Award. He thinks the phrase “out of the box” should be put back in the box and buried in a deep hole.
