Talent Anarchy is the dynamic speaking duo of Jason Lauritsen and Joe Gerstandt. These Talent Anarchists use their collective experiences, common beliefs and different perspectives to deliver thought-provoking, actionable keynote and workshop presentations in an engaging and, at times, comical way.
Joe Gerstandt is the sage consultant. He’s a middle-aged white guy who is a national thought-leader on issues of diversity and inclusion — need we say more?
He brings a unique and powerful perspective to everything he does. The core of Joe’s work is to help organizations solve issues of diversity, culture and innovation through consulting, training and speaking. Listening to Joe speak, you will hear tales of his days as a U.S. Marine and Gulf War veteran blended with his experience in sales, education, and community-building.
To say that Joe is intense and passionate about his work would be an understatement. He is one part professor, one part philosopher, and one part “not quite right.” Be prepared.
Jason Lauritsen is the reformed corporate guy. For nearly a decade, he spent his days in the belly of the beast as a corporate Human Resources leader where he had to actually “walk the talk” each day.
Today, he consults with organizations to help them transform how they approach talent and leadership development. Since his first management job as a corn detasseling team leader at age 13, Jason has been studying people and why they do what they do.
Classically impatient, curious and well groomed, Jason’s early career was a rapid progression of sales and management roles including launching, leading and ultimately selling a small business in his mid-twenties. He’s a leader, sales guy, entrepreneur and corporate executive — all rolled up in one.
