Bio: Christopher S. Rollyson


I have had the good fortune to do some exciting work in corporate innovation, strategy and transformation for over 25 years. My passion is identifying unusual market phenomena that break the rules and helping curious, responsible people learn how to be jujitsu artists. Although I’m not a martial arts practitioner, I appreciate that in jujitsu, you learn to turn external forces to your advantage or, competitively, you can turn an opponent’s force against him.

I’ve advised executives and enterprises in adopting disruptive technology, and I’ve worked disruption from both sides of the desk, having led transformation as a marketing executive and advised firms on high risk technologies as a management consultant. I’m an alum of two of the Big Four global consultancies as well as several boutique firms and ventures.

I have lived and worked in six countries and speak several languages.
