In Everything Connects, Faisal Hoque—noted thought leader; serial entrepreneur; technology innovator; advisor to CEOs, BODs, and the US federal government; and author of the #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller of LIFT—provides a framework that shows readers how to:

  • Holistically connect the “when” and “what” with who they are
  • Inspire and lead inside and outside of their organization
  • Generate ideas, grounded decisions, and long-term value

Part philosophy, part business, and part history, this thought provoking book explores the intersection of mindfulness, creativity, and innovation. You’ll learn from the wisdom of 2500 year old Eastern philosophies and the interconnected insights of Leonardo da Vinci. Couple that with Fortune 100 corporate cross pollination for creativity and startup thinking for how to adapt with ease, and you have Everything Connects. This isn’t just a quick fix for your next financial quarter; this is how you succeed in the long run.

I am a student of life, entrepreneurship, and humanity. As a child, I lived through war and famine; as a college student, I worked as a janitor on the graveyard shift; as a serial entrepreneur since the early 90s, I have been traveling the cutting edge world of innovation, technology, and global business; as an author for two decades, I have been exploring the intersection of science and humanities; and as a traveler, I have been roaming around the globe with utter gratitude.

In my late teens, I left my father’s home in Dhaka, Bangladesh for U.S. to study. It was August of 1986 when I just finished my first (and rapid) summer semester at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I was a student of the College of Engineering studying Electrical Engineering. After paying my tuition fee for summer and fall, I had $700.00 to survive, get educated, and move forward with my life! Since then, I have traveled many miles and my journey continues.

I hold a strong belief that it is through knowledge sharing that we may provide the greatest clarity on how to improve our collective future. I am passionate about nature, people, culture, music, and design, and love to cook.
