Douglas Merrill is the former Chief Information Officer at Google. Put another way: he championed innovation at one of the world's most innovative companies. In his passionate keynotes, Merrill draws on real world experience to help companies build their own thriving, strategic, and sustainable cultures of creativity.

Douglas Merrill brings to his keynotes a rich real-world perspective on innovation as strategy, as culture, while delivering an overview of how new technologies have changed the way we live and work.
