Anders SĂ¶rman-Nilsson (LLB / EMBA) is a global futurist and innovation strategist who helps leaders decode trends, decipher whatâ€™s next and turn provocative questions into proactive strategies. With an average of 240 international travel days a year, Andersâ€™ view is that the future and the now are converging in a city or start-up near you, giving the curious, the creative and the courageous a competitive and sustainable edge. At the same time, that same future contains fearsome forecasts for futurephobes.
This Swedish-Australian futurist has shared stage with Hillary Clinton, Nobel Laureates, and European and Australian heads of state. He is an active member of TEDGlobal, has keynoted at TEDx in the United States and Australia, was nominated to the World Economic Forumâ€™s Young Global Leaders in 2015, and was the keynote speaker at the G20â€™s Y20 Summit in Australia.
