Magnus Lindkvist

Magnus Lindkvist will tell you what life, society and business might look like in the future.

It is the fantastic timing, storytelling and politically incorrect humour that keep the audience laughing and talking well after his talk ends. Magnus is a rock star on the scene.

As a writer, Magnus is driven by a relentless curiosity about our mental space where the outside world collides with the human brain. His book Minifesto (2016) tells us why small ideas matter in the world of grand narratives. By sharing a vision of the future we can strive to surround ourselves with as many strange, conflicting ideas that we can in order to immerse ourselves in future possibilities and possible futures. His next book, The Reset Book, 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. His talks are often described as ‘performances’; he calls it ‘intellectual acupuncture’ with the expressed intention of changing our minds with needles of insight, examples and observations.

He has won several awards for his ‘performances’ on stage and for his books, but perhaps the best acclaim ever given was from an UK director who said ‘Magnus Lindkvist is the best Swedish export since ABBA and meatballs.’
