Bill Taylor's Biography

A spirited and hard-charging entrepreneur, Bill Taylor co-founded Fast Company, the most influential voice on business and innovation in the last two decades. Fast Company chronicles the revolution in management and competition driven by technology. In less than six years, the magazine sold for $340 million. In addition to writing, Bill’s passion has always been speaking. He brings audiences groundbreaking new ideas and techniques to compete, innovate, and succeed. He’s also authored three bestselling books on leadership, culture, and change. Bill created the “Under New Management” column for The New York Times and has published numerous essays and CEO interviews in the Harvard Business Review, where he now blogs regularly.

Bill’s book, “Simply Brilliant: How Great Organizations Do Ordinary Things in Extraordinary Ways” (2016), offers a set of messages and a collection of case studies about how to unleash breakthrough creativity and cutting-edge performance in even the most competitive, hard-to-change fields. It was published in September 2016 by Portfolio, the business imprint of Penguin Random House. The book was named “Best Book of 2016” by Leadership Now. “Simply Brilliant” is a sequel of sorts to Bill’s popular book, “Practically Radical: Not-So-Crazy Ways to Transform Your Company, Shake Up Your Industry, and Challenge Yourself.” Bill also co-authored “Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win.” Just weeks after its release, “Mavericks” became a New York Times Bestseller, a Wall Street Journal Business Best Seller, and a BusinessWeek Best Seller.

Fast Company has won just about every award there is to win in the magazine world, from “Startup of the Year” to “Magazine of the Year” to three National Magazine Awards. In recognition of Fast Company‘s impact on business, Bill was named “Champion of Workplace Learning and Performance” by the American Society of Training and Development.
