Hør Magnus Lindkvists speak: Langelinie – 13. juni 2019 Aarhus – 26. juni 2019

The future has changed in the past decade. It used to be a bright place full of flying cars, shiny glass skyscrapers and one happy, healthy and wealthy globalized family holding hands. Today, we instead envision a burning planet full of job-stealing robots, crazy politicians and abandoned shopping malls. This is the backdrop against which we – leaders, entrepreneurs and, above all, human beings – are expected to work, dream and create today.

The question  – and the starting point of Magnus Lindkvist’s talk – is why. Based on over 15 years experience in futurology and trend spotting, Lindkvist will share his best and most useful insights into the kind of mental tools we have at our disposal when we think and plan ahead. With a mixture of academic rigor and humor, Lindkvist blends examples from the arts, business and politics with futurological wisdom to generate talks full of ahhh’s, haha’s and a-ha´s.
