About me

Roel de Vries

For the most of my career, I’ve been immersed in the world of innovation management. This is where my true affections reside. I founded RiverStoneBlue to aid other businesses in their collaborative innovation initiatives after establishing and running the idea management program at a major, international organization.


Over the last decade, I’ve been actively engaged in people-driven innovation across a broad range of industries, gaining invaluable experience and insight along the way. My goal from here is to work with you to implement this knowledge so that you may better manage your own ideas and innovations.


I have been able to advise firms on how to cultivate a culture of innovation via means such as ideation, incubation, entrepreneurship, and more because of my passion for people-driven innovation and my love of public speaking and education.


If you want to effectively innovate, I think you need to include everyone from entry-level workers to C-suite executives. Only by encouraging original thought from every employee can meaningful progress be made.

Let's meet!
