About the author

How do the best get better? Companies like KPMG, ExxonMobil, Novartis, Johnson & Johnson and Canon continue to work with Paul Rulkens to raise the bar and quickly bring results to the next level.

Paul knows that doing more is no longer the default answer to too much to do. He is an expert in high performance: the art and science of accelerating bold executive outcomes with the least amount of effort. He is an award-winning professional speaker, author and a trusted boardroom advisor who has helped thousands of business owners, professionals and executives get everything they can out of everything they have. His ideas to improve results and accelerate careers are often described as thought-provoking and counter-intuitive, yet highly effective.

You do not have to be sick in order to get better. As an international keynote speaker, Paul annually addresses dozens of successful international audiences about essential mindsets and proven strategies to reap exponential improvements. His most popular topics cover the secrets of consistent execution, easy innovation, powerful leadership, growth focus and seamless teamwork.

Originally trained as a chemical engineer, Paul’s work is based on deep knowledge and extensive experience in the practical business applications of behavioral psychology, neuroscience and, especially, common sense. As a corporate leader he has worked more than 20 years on the frontline of global business. This makes him both a scholar and a strategist and provides his clients with a unique mix of scientific insights and proven, pragmatic help. His popular TED talks are used frequently in professional training sessions all over the world.
