Braden Kelley is the author of â€œStoking Your Innovation Bonfireâ€ and has been advising companies on how to increase their revenue and cut their costs since 1996. Braden writes frequently on the topic of continuous innovation and works with clients to create innovative strategies, effective customer marketing, organizational change, and improved organizational performance. He has maximized profits for companies while living and working in England, Germany, and the United States. Braden earned his MBA from top-rated London Business School.
But he hasnâ€™t always been an author and a business consultant. Braden served his country honorably in the United States Navy and traveled all around the Western Pacific. In his pre-MBA life he created Symantecâ€™s first web-based interactive technical support and customer service, along with an electronic suggestion box to power 360-degree customer feedback. He then left to pursue a career as a knowledge management and collaboration consultant in Silicon Valley.
Braden is passionate about innovation and has published more than 400 articles for online publications â€“ including articles translated into Portuguese (and soon Hebrew). In addition, he has written white papers on â€œCharitable Innovationâ€ and â€œEffective Conversational Marketingâ€ for Business Strategy Innovation.
In his spare time, Braden runs the popular multiple author innovation blog â€“ BloggingInnovation.com â€“ home to over 2,850 articles and video interviews with luminaries like Dean Kamen, Seth Godin, Scott Cook, Kevin Roberts, John Hagel III, Judy Estrin, Roger Martin, Dan Pink, and more. And last but not least, he is an innovation leader on Twitter (@innovate) with 10,000+ hard-earned followers.
