Ralf Specht is a visionary business leader and creator of the Soul System™, a framework that aligns value-creating employee action with broader corporate strategy through shared understanding & shared purpose.
As a founding partner of Spark44, he was the architect of an innovative, industry-first joint venture with Jaguar Land Rover which grew under his leadership to a global revenue of $100+m and 1,200 employees before it joined forces with Accenture Interactive in 2021. Previously, he consulted with global companies and brands for more than two decades with McCann Erickson.
He is the author of Building Corporate Soul: Powering Culture & Success with the Soul System™ (Fast Company Press). During his 25 years in executive roles, one key question kept him awake at night: How to build and sustain a human-centric performance culture? Today, his driving vision is to make soulless companies a thing of the past.
