A Speaker With a Difference Who Makes a Difference
In his speaking engagements Dr. Ridderstråle works with a modular “Lego-style” approach. This design enables him to be flexible in adapting both content and length of his presentations to the context and specific needs of the client. In keynotes, workshops and after-dinner speeches, Jonas shares his insights into what’s changing in the new world of business. Depending on the client, the impact of these trends is then linked to implications for issues such as business strategy innovation, talent management, new organizational solutions, leadership challenges, etc. Examples used are aligned to the industrial and cultural setting.
