SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS, SEMINARS, CONFERENCES
Tim Courtney is available for speaking engagements (in person and virtually), to lead seminars, and to moderate panels at conferences in the San Francisco Bay Area or worldwide.
Corporate executives, startup founders, and innovators love hearing the story about how the LEGO Group introduced crowdsourcing and overcame complexity to grow the acclaimed LEGO IDEAS product line. Courtney delivers informative and inspirational talks about how brands can leverage the power of their most engaged customers to create beloved, authentic, and profitable products.
While traveling to Denmark over 35 times over the seven years he was at LEGO, Tim Courtney fell in love with Danish urbanism and design. He’s passionate about engaging with American urban planners, architects, real estate developers, mobility companies, transit officials, civil servants, and elected officials about making the United States safe for people who walk and bike by taking inspiration from Denmark.
