A PREMIERE IN THE SILICON VALLEY PROGRAM
AUG 12–16 • 2019
THE WORLD'S LEADING BUSINESS PHILOSOPHER
Our Leaders of today need the philosophy of the past, paired with the
scientific knowledge and technology of tomorrow.
Anders Indset is one of the world's leading business philosophers and a trusted sparring partner to international CEOs and political
leaders. Titled "Rock'n'Roll Plato" by media, he is currently one of the most sought after keynote speakers in the world with his
approach to practical philosophy.
Thinkers50 , the premier ranking of global business thinkers, regarded as by many the “Oscars of Management Thinking", has recognised Anders on the Radar 2018 as one of 30 Global Thinkers "most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and led”. Anders was also named "Thinker of the Month" in July and August 2018.
Based on his 10 postulates of change, he explains how to cope with our fast-moving time. The native Norwegian, based in Frankfurt, is also a guest lecturer at leading international business schools and a member of the supervisory board of the German Tech Entrepreneurship Center (GTEC). With his Sa.|shapingwork academy he has outlined a new academic approach that combines practical (applicable) philosophy with the “best-of-breed” practices from Leadership, Management and Execution.
He finds his drive of practical philosophy by claiming that there is so much bullshit in business today. As the bullshit can no longer be tolerated due to advances in technology and continuous creation of transparency of the complexity of the world, he is convinced that the practical philosophy is needed. In 10 years we will not be searching for more software engineers, but for people that can bring contemplation of philosophy to the (business) world.
Known for his unconventional way of thinking, his provocative theses and his rock star attitude, Anders covers topics such as technology, leadership, change and creation in his inspirational keynote speeches. His latest book "WILD KNOWLEDGE - Outthink the Revolution" (www.wild-knowledge.com) was released in Europe in 2017 and has been translated into further languages in 2018. In Q1 2019, his book Philosophy@Work (www.philosophyat.work) - a collection of philosophical concepts with contributions from some of the leading thinkers of modern times - will be published with the focus on howcompanies and executives can master the challenges of the 21st century.
His next book - The Quantum Economy - What comes after Digital? - is announced for early 2019 and deals with a completely new
engine for our economy.
