David Goldsmith is an award-winning businessman, consultant and adviser, author, speaker, patent holder, and President and Co-founder of the Goldsmith Organization (New York and Hong Kong), a consulting firm servicing executive clients across six continents in commerce, nonprofits, governments, militaries, and education. He is a trusted consultant and adviser to executives in some of the world’s largest companies, including Infosys, Maersk, Illinois Tool Works, Dole, KPMG, Techtronics, and Wipro, travelling more than 300,000 miles each year to improve leaders and their organizations. David’s close work with top-level decision makers and world leaders gives him a comprehensive insight into the challenges facing leadership today and enables him to challenge leaders to think differently, cross-pollinate solutions across industries, and provide practical (and sometimes counterintuitively innovative) tools and methodologies that create immediate, rapid, and sustainable results.
Though his formal education—a dual major in biology and psychology—prepped David for medical school, as his undergraduate studies neared completion, he took a detour into the world of business, earned an MBA, and never looked back. His first startups, before they were called “startups”, spanned a range of industries, earned entrepreneurial awards, and garnered international interest. His past and present accomplishments have been featured in media such as the South China Morning Post, the Japanese version of Entrepreneur Magazine, the Financial Times, CNN, and various newspapers in the US and Europe.
Currently, David is also the Co-founder of ecosystem.AI (San Francisco and London), a predictive analytics and visualization company that finds hidden value within markets; Co-founder of Buzd, LLC (San Francisco), a firm in which he is a patent holder for technological applications and products related to artificial intelligence, cell phone applications, battery technologies, and consumer products; Co-founder and CEO of TymSync, Inc. (San Diego), a forward-oriented firm that develops innovative technologies; Founder and Project Leader of an Project Moon Hut, a three-year effort with NASA (Silicon Valley) to enable sustainable life on the moon through the accelerated development of a space based economy; and adviser and stakeholder in several cutting-edge startups globally.
David is the author of Paid to THINK: A Leader’s Toolkit for Redefining Your Future, a work described by readers as “an MBA in a book” and acclaimed by experts as a groundbreaking approach to modern leadership and management.
