Chris Griffiths's Biography

Chris Griffiths is bestselling author and world-renowned expert on creativity and innovative thinking skills. He is the number one expert in the world for the application of Mind Mapping.

With over 28 years’ experience in setting up and leading successful businesses, Chris is a successful entrepreneur, having started his first business when he was 16 and selling his first company at the age of 25. He has founded several start-ups and companies that have ranked in the ‘Deloitte Fast 50′ and ‘The Sunday Times Fast-track 100′.

Chris delivers a refreshingly pragmatic approach on systemising innovation in business. If you’ve always thought creativity was all fluff and no substance, Chris will convince you otherwise. In an era of automation and chatbots, Chris can provide rare insight on the ways in which AI can enhance human ingenuity with reference to his own AIpowered creativity app, Ayoa.

He is a multi-time bestselling author whose work has been translated into over 20 languages, and a serial entrepreneur. He has launched 4 apps to date, each with over 1M users; he has grown and sold a global network of over 1000 innovation coaches, and built a 22,000 sq. ft. tech-hub.

Chris has been asked to facilitate brainstorming sessions at the Petra Nobel Conference of Nobel Laureates and has worked with Governments, Royals, and a wide array of global CEOs. He is a regular contributor to publications such as Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Forbes, and the BBC (among others).
