Lenny Lind

Founder & Chairman and Senior Consultant

Before founding Covision, Lenny was a geologist, a pilot and a freelance photographer. The third time was indeed a charm, as Lenny quickly became the go-to photographer for Bay Area businesses. After a few years, he also began offering videographer services and started filming corporate meetings.

It didn’t take too long before Lenny saw a pattern emerge: meetings were one-sided and lacked any kind of group dynamic, understanding or consensus. That’s when Covision was born along with a new industry—interactive meetings.

Today Lenny still helps with meeting design, supports his incredibly talented staff and, together with Karl Danskin, wrote a new book on the power of interactivity in large meetings. His other books are listed here. Even after leading hundreds of sessions, Lenny still finds great gratification in bringing good ideas to life in a meeting and hearing both the kudos and relief from his clients.

Outside of the office, Lenny enjoys photography (it’s more of a hobby nowadays), running a coffee farm with his wife and feeding a herd of 3 cats, 3 dogs, 6 turkeys, 8 ducks, 3 parakeets, 2 canaries and 1 horse.
