Opening Keynote: Why the Future Begins – How to Create Tomorrow
  • Magnus Lindkvist - Futurist, Author, The Attack of the Unexpected

When times are unpredictable, it is never reality’s fault. When Bob Dylan wins the Nobel Prize of Literature and a reality soap star becomes U.S. president, we all have to ask the question: Have the rules changed? Trendspotter and Futurologist Magnus Lindkvist (dubbed” the best Swedish export since ABBA and meatballs” by CIPD UK) acts as kind of software update patch for our future thinking, not by predicting but by polishing and sharpening the lens through which we gaze at tomorrow. At PMI EMEA Congress 2017, he will show us why the word ”trend” is obsolete, why competition is rewarded while creation is punished and what we can all learn from a jobless grind core musician in rural Sweden. All delivered with wit, insight and a multimedia experience that will make you go ”aha” and ”haha” in equal doses.
