Yanik Silver has been called a Cosmic Catalyst, a Maverick Mischief-maker and a Galactic Goofball. He redefines how business is played in the 21st century at the intersection of evolutionary growth, impact and fun. Yanik is the author of Evolved Enterprise and the founder of Maverick1000, a global collective of visionary entrepreneurs making a serious difference in the world, without taking themselves too seriously. In fact, it’s not unusual to find him dressed as a lemur, a showgirl or even in matching mermaid tails with Sir Richard Branson.
Yanik believes we all have our own “Cosmic Alarm Clock” that goes off at exactly the right time to fulfill our destiny of greatness. It starts as a whisper, a small voice that gets louder and louder until you either answer it or hit snooze. He has spent his life exploring that connection of head, heart and highest purpose… with his colored pens in hand. It might have all started when he snuck out at the age of 5 to buy markers — only to catch the wrong bus home and end up at the police station. (Undaunted, his love of doodling and exploring still continue to this day!)
