Watch Magnus Lindkvist from #TDC12
Magnus Lindkvist is an internationally known speaker, trendspotter and the author of three books – Everything We Know Is Wrong, The Attack of The Unexpected and the upcoming When The Future Begins. In his work, he challenges our entire way of thinking about and looking towards the future. As Magnus writes, “business is all about focus. But with focus comes myopia and to conquer that, I come in to shake things up.” Based in Stockholm, you’ll find Magnus is blessed with the Scandinavian ability to be analytic, challenging, creative, optimistic and humorous seemingly all at the same time.
