Named on several Global Thinkers Lists , the eminent Kjell is a dynamic and highly respected keynote speaker.
Kjell’s first foray into business was academic. After an engineering degree, he completed an Economics degree and a Phd in International Business (both from Stockholm University), which incorporated extensive research into globalization and business strategy. An academic role at the Institute of International Business at the Stockholm School of Economics followed.
Using his knowledge he now advises and consults for many multinational businesses, and writes endlessly on the subjects. He has published three books and numerous articles in all of the world’s most widely read and respected business and management magazines.
Alongside colleague Jonas Ridderstrale, he presents his findings in print and via the spoken word. A world-class team of orators, the pair travel the world extensively expounding their managerial wisdom.
They have published Funky Business – Talent Makes Capital Dance, and in 2000, both Amazon and the online magazine Management General rated it as one of the five best business books of the year.
Karaoke Capitalism - Management for Mankind, also written together with Jonas Ridderstråle, was published in 2003. The book has been translated into 23 languages and the duo has appeared on international TV to talk about their findings.
