MAGNUS LINDKVIST (SWEDEN)

FUTUROLOGIST AND AUTHOR

Magnus Lindkvist is a trendspotting futurologist and author who weaves together important current trends to forecast what life, society, and business might look like in the future. He has given in excess of a thousand keynote speeches over the past decade to everyone from Fortune 500 CEOs and civil servants in the Middle East to anyone looking to be inspired and enlightened by trendspotting and future thinking. His next book, Creative Friction, will be published in 2022.

With a Master of Science in Business and Economics from Stockholm School of Economics and a degree in film production from UCLA, Lindkvist weaves together the worlds of quantitative insights with the imaginative storytelling of Hollywood. It is the fantastic timing, storytelling, and politically incorrect humor that keep the audience – a global audience – laughing and talking well after his talk ends.

At SHIFT Magnus will talk about how to drive organizations through disruption and most importantly how to reconnect humans and technology creatively to drive future growth.
