Announcing our Inspire 2019 Keynote speaker: Malcolm Gladwell

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)



Alteryx is excited to welcome Malcolm Gladwell, five-time The New York Times best-selling author, as this year’s keynote speaker at Inspire North America 2019!

We're getting closer and closer to Inspire 2019, where the theme, You.Amplified, is all about you - our Alteryx users and Community members. As Community members reserve their spots to attend Inspire in Nashville (have you reserved your spot yet?), brush up on your skills for the Grand Prix, and dream of the breakout sessions you're most excited for, we have one more must-see to add to your Inspire agenda.


Introducing our keynote speaker, Malcolm Gladwell! He's a highly respected journalist with an exceptional ability to make meaning out of a variety of social and scientific phenomena. 


He has explored how ideas spread in The Tipping Point, decision making in Blink, and the roots of success in Outliers. With his latest book, David and Goliath, he examines our understanding of advantages of disadvantages, arguing that we have underestimated the value of adversity and over-estimated the value of privilege.


“Success is not a random act. It arises out of a predictable and powerful set of circumstances and opportunities.” 
― Malcolm Gladwell, Outliers

Malcolm’s popular 10-part podcast Revisionist History is in its third season. In the weekly podcast, Malcolm re-examines an overlooked or misunderstood aspect of past events.


He has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1996, won a national magazine award and has been honored by the American Psychological Society and the American Sociological Society.


Always on target, poised, eloquent, warm and funny, Malcolm's keynote is sure to be a highlight of your experience at Inspire. Who wants to race to get a front row seat?


Be sure to reserve your spot at Inspire - is it too soon to start packing my bags?


See you all there!
