Webb, CEO of Lassen Innovation, works with Fortune 500 companies throughout the world to help them lead their industries in innovation, strategy, and customer experience (CX) design. Webb speaks to audiences across the entire healthcare ecosystem on the future of healthcare in the face of changes driven by the Affordable Care Act, the consumerization of patients, and the impact that disruptive innovation is having on both clinical and business models.

Webb helps organizations understand and, most importantly, be relevant in the fast-moving and hyper-connected future. In his recent body of research, he discovered the four key trends that will determine the success of any enterprise, from entrepreneurial startups to Fortune 500 companies. He helps his clients and audiences understand the trajectory of change so that they can take the insights from his talk and apply it in their business to ensure their relevance in the future.

Webb has been awarded more than 45 patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for breakthrough technologies, ranging from one of the world’s smallest medical implants to state-of-the-art wearable technologies. His most recent book, What Customers Crave, is used by top brands to design their CX and innovation strategies.

In recognition of his contributions to healthcare, Western University of Health Sciences, located in Pomona, CA, awarded Webb with an honorable Doctorate of Humane Letters in 2016.
