Keynote Speaker – Kyle Scheele

"Patron of Outrageous Ideas" and Award-Winning Author

Kyle has been called “the patron saint of outrageous ideas.” Whether he’s having a Viking funeral for the regrets of 21,000 people, hosting the world’s first fake marathon, or gaining a million TikTok followers in just 25 hours, Kyle is always on the lookout for outrageous ideas that produce wildly outsized outcomes.  Over the last decade, his projects have been featured in outlets like Fast Company, WIRED, The Washington Post, Yahoo!, BuzzFeed, UpWorthy, Goalcast, and more.  His videos have been viewed over 250 million times, and he has spoken to hundreds of thousands of audience members across the United States.  More than anything, Kyle hopes that his story can inspire others to chase their own outrageous ideas and become the people they were meant to be.

Kyle is also the author of “How to Host a Viking Funeral: The Case for Burning Your Regrets, Chasing your Crazy Ideas, and Becoming the Person You’re Meant to Be” and the children’s book, “Pizza with Everything on it.”



If there’s one belief that is holding you back from getting the most out of your team, it’s this one: some people are creative, and some people aren’t.

That belief is based on outdated ideas about what creativity means, where it comes from, and who gets to harness it.

The truth is, creativity is a skill like any other: it can be learned.

In the same way that we teach employees how to track expenses, process invoices, and jiggle the lock just right to get into the supply closet, we can teach them how to be more creative, how to have better ideas, and how to build a culture where innovation is a natural by-product.


In this talk, Kyle will:

  • Inspire audience members to harness their own capacity for creativity and innovation.
  • Give practical tips for how to get more (and better!) ideas out of yourself and your team)
  • Share the 5 things that every idea needs
  • Help you avoid common idea-killers in your organization
