About Paul
  • I help executives, leaders, and entrepreneurs get unstuck.
    Great ideas move companies forward.
    Why do some companies lead while others follow? They simply solve problems better. HeadSmack gives your teams proven tools to do that. Starting now.

    My name is Paul Povolni, for over 20 years I’ve been a creative leader. I’ve lead teams in creating award-winning branding and design as well as helped clients solve problems and think creatively, even if they were not creative.
    What is the value of one great idea?
    Why do some companies lead while others follow? They simply solve problems better. I work with leaders and coaches to get unstuck, think creatively and solve problems quickly-without the need to be a creative.
    I speak for a variety of audiences, including businesses, schools, conferences, churches, and nonprofit organizations. My speaking topics are creative thinking, leadership and personal growth.
    Branding and Visual Strategy
    There’s nothing I’ve enjoyed more than leading award winning projects and teams for 24 years. A major portion of my career has been in branding and design. My experience and clients range from local start-ups to international corporations. I’ve worked with clients in Australia, Boulder, Canada, Dubai and Europe (A, B, C, D, E…see what I did there?).
Favorite Quotes
  • “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
