Seminar & Speaking Engagements
Seminars: Engineering Groups & Entrepreneurs
- With inclusion of "ideation" sessions
"YOU AND INDUSTRIAL DESIGN WITHIN IDEATION" - Here, Russ Strong explains for innovation, engineering and marketing groups the key "methods" he utilizes to expand your ability to breakdown objectives, create openings for expanded creative thought and innovation, then "map" and reconstruct desired objectives. These are aspects that aid in seeing things in a broader sense --- to aid expanding new concepts, new technologies integration opportunities and advance your product development strengths.
With your engineers and marketing --- working "in the trenches" --- this seminar and session also provides engineers furthered understanding of styling/art, and the depth of "tools" to get from concept to production product. How to best incorporate styling within engineering efforts. How to leverage internal and external design and prototyping resources. How to leverage suppliers, team partners, materials and processes to achieve higher quality outcomes --- and quality perception. Engineers are encouraged to combine insights with those of marketing, market analysis, customers, dealers and others --- unstructured, and then focused, problem solving.
Speaking: Organizations, Corporate, Academia, Entrepreneurs
"INNOVATING AND ACHIEVING TOGETHER" - This talk, and often follow-on work sessions, are well received as high value to product development organizations, innovation initiatives of academia, and entrepreneurs. This is an excellent addition to any "innovation ecosystem" seminar series for graduating engineers, business majors and young professionals. Here, Russ Strong brings you proven insights on how to advance an innovation culture, expand your experience and capabilities within tech integration and design, and advance cross-discipline personal career and leadership skills. Points are communicated through case stories, examples, analogies and humor. The information is simplified enough for someone first learning, and also bring depth enough to advance the knowledge and skills of the most experienced.
Russ Strong draws on his 35 yr experience and studied insights from across the global spectrum of engineering, ideation, program management, industrial design/styling --- from corporate/industry "intrapreneurial", entrepreneurial and defense worlds --- covering the realities of the politics of innovation, and how to achieve within this.
This applies to any organization seeking greater abilities in innovation, tech integration and achieving solutions to complex challenges. Russ Strong communicates fresh and proven means to create the team dynamics that "map" out and generate opportunities --- while furthering understanding of the challenge, the "customer", the worker, management, and working across disciplines.
People-Oriented, Creative, Simplified and Visionary
I have had the pleasure of working with Russ since 1999 where we worked together on a new vehicle program in Detroit, USA. Russ is without doubt the most dynamic and creative person I have ever met. Not only is he extremely talented industrial designer for which of course he is ‘world famous’, but he disseminates positive thinking and motivation throughout ones organization.” -- Jeff Mowatt Sr Project Engr. CNH Basildon, UK
“His enthusiasm and passion for creating new vehicles that would shape the future of agriculture and other industries was a key motivator for our team members and helped shape the leadership style of our business unit.”
