Dr. Chris Arnold

Dr Chris Arnold is dyslexic, ADHD and an award winning creative, having been a Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi, where he established a 'fast thinking' team of ND staff, that solved problems others couldn't. He is founder of Creative Orchestra (which positively employs neurodiverse people) and founder of DYVERSITY LAB, a global collective of high achieving diverse + neurodiverse thinkers, “using our abilities to think differently to make a difference in the world". He applies both his experience of running teams with ND members (autism, dyslexia, ADHD) with psychometric modelling to help companies tap into ’the talent within' their organisation to create better teams that think different, solve problems in new ways and innovate. “If you look at it a different way, to see Neurodiversity as a diffability, not a disability, you can tap into talent within that can transform your business.”  It’s estimated that up to 20% of staff are ND. Don’t expect another formulaic D&I talk, this is immersive, experiential, enlightening and will make you think different.
