Dr. Erez Morag, Nike game changer, talks about innovation in products and in business sharing with the audience the principles of innovation and creativity from sports science and advising his audience to make use of these principles in the business context.
While at Nike’s headquarters in Oregon (1998-2011), Erez contributed to four unprecedented start-ups within the company. He was recruited initially to lead innovation research in the multi-billion dollar global football and women’s fitness industries. After a successful run with product innovations, he founded programs that linked product and business innovation. Two of these programs, Boot Camp and Nike Football+, utilize websites and field events to create football communities in over 25 countries worldwide. Not only do customers get great shoes, they are invited to join an insider club of expertise. With the tag line, “buy world-class boots, access world-class pros,” Boot Camp and Nike Football+ have reached hundreds of thousands of players around the globe.
Erez is dynamic and personable, inspiring audiences with his passion for sport and business. His speaking engagements have included Harvard Business School (where his talk has evolved into a case study), Stanford University, the National Football League, Syngenta Corp., and Pipeline 2011 Innovation Conference, where he was the featured speaker.
