Unthink What You Know about Conference Keynotes

Unthink what you know about conference keynote addresses.

Unthink your expectations.




You’ve been to conferences before, no?

Of course you have. 

What word would you say best describes a great keynote address?

Is it…

  • Academic?
  • Informative?
  • Educational?

Is it…

  • Motivating?
  • Energizing?
  • Exciting?

Is it…

  • Thought-provoking?
  • Enlightening?
  • Insightful?

If a keynote presentation was all nine of these things, wouldn’t you want to experience it? Wouldn’t you think it shouldn’t be missed?

Have I got a conference keynote for you.


At Appian World 2016, you can see the incredible Erik Wahl.

An internationally recognized graffiti artist, # 1 best selling author, and entrepreneur, Erik Wahl redefines the term “keynote speaker.”

Pulling from his experience as both a businessman and an artist, Erik has become one of the most sought-after corporate speakers. His bestselling business book UNTHINK was hailed by Forbes Magazine as THE blueprint to actionable creativity and by Fast Company Magazine as Provocative with a Purpose. On stage, Erik’s incredible, fast-paced painting is a visual metaphor to the core of his message, propelling organizations toward greater innovation and superior performance.wahl-ananheim-blog

After a eight-year career as a partner in a corporate firm, Erik became frustrated by the lack of innovative thought he saw in business. He set out to challenge companies to change their way of thinking, while simultaneously pursuing his own individual passions. Over the past ten years, he has shared his incredible message with the largest and most influential companies in the world, leaving behind his prized artwork as a reminder of what breakthrough thinking can do.

He’s the Warhol of Wall Street…the Renoir of ROI…the Picasso of Productivity…

He is Erik Wahl: graffiti artist, author, entrepreneur and philanthropist.

And, he’ll be joining us all at Appian World 2016.

I hope you’ll be there.
