Jeremy Utley

Director Of Executive Education At Hasso Plattner Institute Of Design At Stanford
Stanford d.school

In addition to leading professional development programs at the d.school, Jeremy teaches two celebrated courses at Stanford, d.leadership, and LaunchPad, which focus on creating real-world impact with the tools of design. He is also on the teaching teams of d.org, an organizational design course, and Transformative Design, a course that turns the tools of design onto graduate students’ lives. One of the most prodigious collaborators at the d.school, Jeremy has taught alongside the likes of Lecrae, Dan Ariely, Laszlo Bock, and Greg McKeown. On his 10th birthday, his father asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. Jeremy replied, “One of the people who carry boxes with handles.” Jeremy is a recovering investment analyst and management consultant who does not try to hide his love of spreadsheets. He came to Stanford’s Graduate School of Business to pursue a career in economic development, but an unexpected encounter with the d.school shifted his trajectory to helping others.
