The Intangible Labs
Nilofer Merchant is a renowned business strategist and innovator on a mission to reinvent work so that it actually works. A bestselling author, TED mainstage speaker, and recipient of the “Future Thinker” Award from Thinkers 50, Merchant says few companies will survive unless they understand what she calls onlyness—the experience, talent, perspective, and purpose lying untapped in the workforce. Through her impactful talks, she reveals new ways of connecting our ideas to the world, and empowers leaders to unlock the vast source of innovation too often overlooked in their own people. During her 25 years in technology, Merchant personally launched more than 100 products, netting $18 billion in sales. She is the bestselling author of three books, including The Power of Onlyness: Make Your Wild Ideas Mighty Enough to Dent the World.
