David Grady    

Information Security Manager

David Grady is an information security manager who believes that strong communication skills are a necessity in today’s global economy. He has been a print journalist, a “PR guy” and a website producer, and has ghostwritten speeches and magazine articles for Fortune 500 company executives.

A mid-life career change brought him into the world of information risk management, where every day he uses his communications experience to transform complex problems into understandable challenges.

In his TED Talk “How to Save the World (or at least yourself) From Bad Meetings,” David Grady dared employees to take control of their calendars and “just say ‘maybe’” to time-consuming meeting invitations. The message struck a nerve: Grady’s TED Talk has been viewed 3 million times and has been translated into 38 languages, and a companion YouTube video on poorly-managed conference calls has been viewed 2 million times and is used in new-hire training at some of the world’s best-known companies. Using humor and data, Grady helps organizations improve employee engagement and efficiency by rethinking how, when and why to meet.
