2017 FEATURED SPEAKERS
For this year's Summit, we are delighted to have Magnus Lindkvist headline our agenda.
Magnus is a renowned trendspotter, futurologist and author, and an active member of TED – the world’s leading trends forum. In a world that requires increased agility and innovation, he mixes business facts with a visionary perspective that challenges our entire way of thinking. As one of the most sought-after speakers on future-thinking, megatrends and trendspotting, he asks two questions relentlessly: “What’s going on in the world?” and “Where is this all heading?” As a trendspotter and futurologist, these questions fuel his curiosity and enable him to inspire and provoke the minds of audiences around the world.
To date he has authored three books: Everything We Know is Wrong: The Trendspotter’s Handbook (2009), The Attack of the Unexpected: A Guide to Surprises and Uncertainty (2010), and When The Future Begins: A Guide to LongTerm Thinking (2013).
A management consultant and filmmaker by background, Magnus mixes quantifiable business facts with the visionary art of ‘futurology.’ In his own words, his presentations are designed to generate ‘ahhs, ha-has and ahas.’
