With a background in management consultancy and film-making Magnus Lindqvist is unquestionably one of the most forward thinking visionaries of our age. A trendspotter and futurologist of great repute, he is an active member of TED, the world’s leading trends forum and also heads an influential Swedish agency.
Magnus sees his current role as one of mixing quantifiable business facts with visionary perspective. In his presentations, he challenges his audiences in preparation for what lies ahead. Believing that business should offer its consumers “a piece of the action” he uses multimedia and a dry Nordic wit to capture imagination and impact on the way of thinking for the future.
With the ability to think inside and outside the box, Magnus not only acknowledges the constantly evolving technology scene and the huge impact it will impose on us all but turns our current way of thinking on its head, dispelling many of our assumptions while painting a far more reassuring picture of how the human race will confidently adapt to change ahead and backs his theories with factual and fallible alternatives.
A former Business Speaker of the Year Award in Sweden, Magnus’ unique style is both energising and inspirational with topics covering; Energy and Sustainability, Digital and Online Business, Creative Thinking and Business Strategy.
In addition to his speaking skills, Magnus created and developed the first academically accredited course in trendspotting and future thinking at Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship and has written a number of books on his specialist subject.
