Hi, I am Chetan Walia

What’s next for breakthroughs?


In my vision for CSCHOOL, that’s the question I’m continually asking, both in terms of where we should look and what we should create next.


Through writing and speaking, and through guiding the choices we make within CSCHOOL, I am continuously expanding both the academic research on creative-strategic perspective and its application in business.

What you wouldn't know from looking me up online?

I have been a professional, black and white photographer. Yes! the traditional darkroom stuff....
