    About Phil McKinney 

    Phil is the founder and host to the award winning Killer Innovations™ podcast.

    He retired in late 2011 from Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) as the vice president and chief technology officer (CTO) of the $40 billion (FY12) Personal Systems Group at HP where he also created and oversaw the Global Innovation Office.

    Phil released his first book on innovation and personal creativity titled Beyond The Obvious, in early 2012 (published by Hyperion). The book presents his rule-breaking approach to  harness the power of innovation. The book is available in hardcover, digital and audio formats.

    • MSNBC and FOX Business both call him “The Gadget Guy”
