Future possibilities, possible futures


Magnus Lindkvist

Futurologist, author and trendspotting phenomenon

The ideas driving humanity onwards 
Ideas are central to Magnus’ lectures. How they clash. How they change the way we work, create and live. The ideas that drive humanity onwards, creating future possibilities and possible futures. Magnus masters the art of letting opposites collide, creating a keynote that changes the way you think and create. 

Qualitative insights, imaginative storytelling 
In his book Minifesto (2016), he celebrates small ideas and explains why they are so important in a world obsessed with major narratives. In 2021 he and Swedish music journalist Jan Gradvall released Creative Friction (available in Swedish) in which they draw on the history of popular culture to explore what unites creative people. With a Master of Science in Business and Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics and a degree in film production from UCLA, Magnus Lindkvist combines his qualitative insights with imaginative storytelling.

Future possibilities, possible futures 
Magnus Lindkvist ranks as one of Sweden’s leading international speakers and has been awarded multiple prizes and awards for his achievements. He has founded and run several companies to help organizations find their way into the future. With his passion for helping businesses to develop, he has also organised training courses to promote a future-focused way of thinking. In 2008, Magnus created the world’s first academically accredited course in trendspotting and future thinking at Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship.
