Magnus Lindkvist

Business intelligence and Trends Futurologist

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.

As a writer, Magnus Lindkvist is driven by a relentless curiosity about our mental space where the outside world collides with the human brain. His recent 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.

It is the fantastic timing, storytelling and politically incorrect humour that keep the audience – a global audience – laughing and talking well after his talk ends. 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.

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 ‘shows’ or ‘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 HR director in the UK who said ‘Magnus Lindkvist is the best Swedish export since ABBA and meatballs.’

Association of Corporate Treasurers

Magnus Lindkvist is a total total total rock star! Seriously. He is fiercely intelligent, wonderfully curious, hilariously funny and amazingly insightful. Magnus was the closing keynote speaker for a conference in Vienna with 150 senior media executives involved in strategy and strategic planning. After a full day of hearing about Google this and Netflix that, along came Magnus. And he showed us that we can think about the future without having anxiety attacks (ha!) and we can learn to be the sexy dancer in the left hand side of the screen...Seriously, he is a truly wonderful and inspiring speaker!
