  1. 1. Geoff Colvin Award-winning thinker and author on significant trends in business Booking Fee: $28,500 What if everything you believe about raw talent, hard work and great performance is wrong? Geoff Colvin’s bestselling book, Talent is Overrated – What Really Separates World Class Performers from Everybody Else, reframed the way people and organizations thought about great performance. Five years later the book is still having a profound impact on people looking to improve their performance and the people who lead them.Geoff Colvin shows how most organizations value the wrong things – passion, honesty andlearning are more valuable than hours, IQ, or “native ability.” In an engaging, entertaining way,he demonstrates that world-class performance doesn’t come from mysterious natural gifts butrather from very specific behaviors that every individual and organization can adopt. His re-lates his examples to real life in real organizations. People and organizations that learn fromthese principles gain a tremendous advantage. The same principles used by the greatest per-formers can be applied by all of us – and must be, if we’re to meet the challenge of rising stan-dards in today’s global economy.
