He has worked with Google, Unilever, PlayStation, and Dyson, and regularly speaks and runs Be More Pirate workshops at these industry-leading companies.

Be More Pirate is his first book.

[Conniff Allende is] one of the sharpest thinkers on the planet. Diving deep into the pirate mythology and ethos, Conniff-Allende riffs on the power of being a swashbuckling, take-no-prisoners leader in the Steve Jobs mode--but also presents a powerful deconstruction on the state of work today and how it can be different if we chose to. It is a manifesto for each of us to create the sort of Good Trouble the world needs."
