Tom Triumph is a consultant, speaker and author who helps companies grow by helping them reinvent their business, product development, and marketing.
He’s helped large organizations act nimbly and small companies scale. He’s participated in two global technology revolutions—(less invasive surgery and software-as-a-service) - and along the way has been part of some remarkable success stories (and some misfires).
Tom lived aboard a research ship where he tended to the mini-sub (Jacques Cousteau was on the Board), wrestled in the Olympic trials, and helped oversee the design and build of the largest composite hovercraft ever built in the US.
He’s the author of the book "Evolve or Die: Lessons for World-Class Innovation & Creativity."
He resides in North Carolina with his wife of 38 years, and is an ultrarunner who envies Tom Hanks’ long run as Forrest Gump.
