“There aren’t too many people walking this earth that could get away with calling themselves Creative Provocateurs, but Michael Sturtz is undoubtedly one of them. The list of achievements he has racked up over the past 25-odd years is beyond impressive, as these have been achieved in the unbroken ground beyond the known frontier of innovation across a number of fields of endeavor, and artistic disciplines.”

Michael Sturtz has worked with business leaders, entrepreneurs, innovation hubs, maker spaces, governments, and art schools to ignite revolutions in organizational development, innovation, and creative empowerment across the globe.
Michael found early success as a sculptor and instructor, and led the now-global Maker Movement as founder of his own industrial arts educational facility. After 12 years of leadership there, he moved to program development, prototyping, and, finally, moonshot investigation. Today, he empowers others to take on “impossible challenges” and evolve beyond their wildest dreams.
Michael’s out-of-the-box thinking strategies dissolve barriers, deconstruct conventions, and give flight to unexpected and seemingly magical transformations. Clients combine consulting with his keynote addresses and workshops to spark creativity, inspire innovation, and transform audiences, communities, and the world.
