Opening Keynote - "HappyBrain: Dynamic Mindsets & Creative Thinking in the Agile World"

Johnny Sundin

We are in an extraordinarily challenging, exciting and even scary window in history right now. Change happens at warp speed. When facing disruptive technologies, new ways of working and a gig-economy, we have to re-think how we think.

Trend-watcher Johnny Sundin takes us on a thought-provoking trip to life in the future. Be inspired to find your own creativity. Gain insights into the brain and the neurology behind the challenges in every change process. Creative thinking can help us in two ways: building new solutions and adapting to new ways of working, living, loving and creating. Sundin is one of Sweden’s most popular speakers on this topic. With a background in media, events and communication, Sundin shares his extensive experience and knowledge of our habits, attitudes and ideas, both with regard to success and our willingness to change.
