Presentations and talks

In his various talks and workshops, Nir invites us to return to renaissance thinking – combining art with engineering, science, and technology. Nir especially advocates the connection between artistic talent and business entrepreneurship, two areas that fuel each other and provide endless opportunities for mutual learning. Contact him to discuss the options for an inspirational and eye-opening lecture or workshop at your event.

In an era when companies struggle to be innovative and creative, compete on talent, and constantly look for the next big thing, Nir inspires listeners to think differently about innovation and creativity, emphasizing the shift in mindset required of business professionals in order to lead in the future. Two of his major topics are:


In this session, Nir advocates the connection between business success and renaissance thinking – combining the brain of a scientist with the empathy and sensibility of an artist. Using examples of leaders in the business world that have already capitalized on the synergy of art and science, he raises questions such as: is it the balance between the right brain and the left brain that made this person or company successful? How can we accomplish this balance? Why should we do it? These questions help to initiate a change in paradigm.


In this session, Nir explores the impact that art has on the innovation process in the business world. Through examples from the past and the present of business companies and projects like Experiments in Art and Technology, Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), he shows why art and science go together, what we can learn from the arts that will help us in the innovation process, and how companies work with the art as innovation collaborator.

The topics above include some of the major themes I am asked to speak on, but they are by no means the
only themes I speak on. I have also done niche keynotes around specific topics. If you have an idea for a session that isn’t listed above, please contact me and we can explore it.


Nir exposes his listeners to a new way of thinking about tools required in the business world. University’s studies won’t help you to lead and develop in this current environment. To succeed one needs to think out of the box and in a creative way. Thus how can one be prepared for the future challenges that are already taking place? What should we do to develop our right brain thinking, the creative, emotional and holistic thinking? In his talks, Nir speaks about these topics and more. Every talk opens a new door to interesting knowledge about innovation, art and the relations between the two.

He speaks about art and creativity in a business language – his talks are focused squarely on creativity, design, and art in the business context and are based on studies of successful business leaders. In addition, he brings examples and tips on how to pursue this way of thinking.

A “mind-blowing journey to the importance of art in business” and “unconventional and one of the most unique talks I have ever attended” to name a few of the comments from his listeners.
