Dr. Mark Bonchek
Founder and CEO (Chief Epiphany Officer) of Shift Thinking.
He works with leaders and organisations to update their thinking for a digital age. He holds Harvard University’s first doctorate on the topic of social media, since 1997. Since then, Bonchek has launched new businesses, created award-winning programs, and advised global leaders for such organisations as McKinsey & Company.
In the early 2000’s, he left Strategos to lead the strategy practice in Boston for iXL, and then served as COO of TomorrowLab for McKinsey & Company. At McKinsey, he advised global leaders, The Economist, IBM and the American Heart Association, designed a new offering using digital media and collaborative community to help leaders build disruptive business models.
His thinkORBIT concept, dealing with leadership, strategy, and learning, is focused on helping organisations shift their thinking beyond channels to “orbits,” and to design strategies that engage stakeholders — including employees and customers — in new ways. Through the framework of Shift Thinking and the thinkORBIT concept, he delivers insights on how to organise, engage, transform cultures and compete in the digital age.
