Larry Cornett, has spoken at numerous public events, conferences, workshops, and keynotes on the topics of design, product management, innovation, creativity, product strategy, and organizational models. He can also be booked for internal corporate events.
“We invited Larry to speak at Fluxible 2013 and couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome. He delivered an inspiring talk titled “Designing for Love & Money”, about the tensions designers face in doing what they love professionally and serving the needs of business. Drawing on his deep experience as both designer and mentor, Larry helped everyone think through these issues and feel re-energized about their careers. He connected with the audience throughout the 2-day event, carrying the conversation forward and providing friendly encouragement — so it’s no surprise his talk was one of the highlights of the program.”
– Robert Barlow-Busch, VP Experience Design, Demeure
“I had the great pleasure to collaborate with Larry during an event that I organised for all WW Product Managers of Dassault Systems (leader in PLM and 3D collaborative solutions), last january in Paris. Larry is such a motivating and passionate speaker to lead and inspire new strong user’s experiences.”
– Bertrand Biard, CEO, C105
“Larry is a consummate product guy – he knows the pulse of what users really want and he can envision the product to deliver that to users before anybody else. His design & consumer product sense is simply the best. To top it all he is one of those leaders who can bring the best out of you – certainly true for me and my team. Larry is a fantastic communicator btw – and coupled with his super design background, his presentations are Jobs-esque! I’d definitely work for/with him anytime.”
– Kaushal Kurapati, Head of Search Operations Emerging Markets, Yahoo!
“I first worked with Larry at eBay. I then had opportunity to collaborate with him and his company Brilliant Forge. Larry is a leader full of charisma. Larry is an expert of user experience design and innovation. He is also a great speaker. With his experience with Apple, eBay, and Yahoo, his approach of innovation is a balanced view of business, user, and technology. Highly recommended!”
