The Short Bio

Greg Roth is a keynote speaker and consultant. His practice, The Idea Enthusiast LLC, teaches individuals and teams to challenge themselves creatively and to establish a culture of experiments that lead to better ideas and better products. (aka “go small”, “just try it”)

He began his career as a journalist, helping Lancaster Newspapers break a story about NCAA violations in the Millersville University athletics department. He worked in sports marketing for a PGA professional, oversaw communications and speechwriting teams at national membership associations, and ran the national flexible workplace initiative for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Greg is a faculty member of the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Organization Management, the chair of the Washington Speechwriters Roundtable, and has served as vice chair of education for the Communication Section Council at ASAE. He earned a B.A. in journalism, with a minor in coaching, from Millersville University of Pennsylvania.

Fun facts

In his career, Greg has had over 100 jobs, including a handful of “real jobs” and many side gigs and one-offs. Some of the more notable ones have been musician, emcee, mascot, photographer, actor (“winner, best acting”), referee/umpire, pedicab driver, tour guide, paperboy, stand-up comic, crayon maker, video producer, showrunner, focus group participant, farmhand, and pizza delivery dude, and garbage truck crewmember.

Because of this, his talks are peppered with analogies from all walks of life. And from this, his ability to translate creativity and design thinking to virtually any field was born.
