Biography

Jonas Ridderstråle made his name at the famous Stockholm School of Economics. Along with Kjell Nordstrom, his co-author on the global bestseller Funky Business, his work focuses on the challenges facing international management and the future of the corporation.

Ranked amongst the world’s ten most influential business thinkers, Dr Ridderstråle serves as an advisor, lecturer and consultant to a number of major companies. He defines the characteristics of the future firm to help senior management formulate organisational strategies and solutions.

Originally concentrating on the impact of the technology revolution, Jonas’ presentations now look at how corporations prepare for the next turn of the wheel. How can a business profit from the ‘wisdom of crowds’ and mimic self-organising systems? How can it work on real-time feedback, and become as good at innovation as it used to be at exploitation?

As well as Funky Business and the follow-up book Karaoke Capitalism, Jonas has published numerous articles on innovation, new organisational structures and leadership styles. In print as on the conference platform, he avoids dry academic theory; instead he delivers an entertaining, challenging and occasionally frightening ‘full colour’ look at the future.
