I often describe myself as a 'professional troublemaker.' It's a playful nod to my unwavering commitment to challenging established norms and sparking transformative change. This title resonates deeply with my early realizations in high school, where I discerned that the education system often rewards conformity at the expense of genuine curiosity. Such insights didn't thwart my spirit, but instead bolstered my drive to view the world through a unique, questioning lens.
For over two decades, driven by a passion to envision the future and uncover potential advancements, I have ventured into uncharted territories, persistently pushing boundaries and acquiring new techniques and expertise. This unconventional curiosity has set the stage for a career centred on the intricate interplay of technology, society, and human behaviour.
My journey in the professional realm has been nothing short of fascinating, delving deep into the ramifications of technology on society and human dynamics. As a strategist, futurist, and speaker, I've had the privilege of collaborating with and shaping digital strategies for industry stalwarts like Volvo Cars, Microsoft, and Ericsson. Every role I've embraced has expanded my horizons, refining my ability to spearhead meaningful innovations in today's rapidly digitizing world.
Further, enriching my journey have been my associations with respected organizations such as MasterCard, Siemens, The World Bank, and various governmental entities. Each partnership has deepened my understanding of the emerging trends, ensuring that I bring a wealth of insight and perspective to every collaborative venture.
But my engagement doesn't end with corporate collaborations. I am deeply invested in researching and sharing insights through writing, thereby contributing to the vibrant discourse surrounding the symbiosis between technology and society. I don't merely observe the evolving future; I am an active participant in its shaping. My primary goal? To underscore the myriad ways' technology can be harnessed for the collective benefit of society.
In essence, my vision draws deeply from the timeless dance between past, present, and imagined futures. With an unwavering gaze set upon the horizon, I seek to collaboratively weave the tapestry of tomorrow. Through bespoke offerings, eloquent discourses, and contemplative conversations, I endeavour to be a compass for souls and entities navigating the intricate web of our ever-transforming reality.
Writing is the painting
of the voice;
a silent symphony of words
that speaks volumes.
I write primarily for personal fulfilment; it's my form of therapy to sift through life's chaos and find clarity. I invite you to download a free copy of my books. If they're not to your liking, feel free to simply delete them. No strings attached. However, if you find value in my words and wish to support my journey as an author, I'd be grateful if you could hop onto Amazon and purchase a copy. Your support means the world to me.
The Intellectual Rage
The Intellectual Rage. The underground, unfiltered guide to corporate innovation & bullshit. A.K.A. Navigating the psychology of innovation in a world of sociopaths, psychopaths and other monsters.
This is not a long book, it's also not a short one. Come to think about it, this is not a book at all, but rather a (mis)guided journey.
Over the years, I have heard many definitions of what innovation is. It's a process, it's a culture, it's a department, it's a bird, it's a train, it's a man, it's superman.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of books and articles written about innovation every year. They all use big words to try to sell you on the author's way of thinking about innovation.
A philosophical perspective on technology, innovation, the evolution of humanity and life.
In a nutshell, this book is the “Thinker's Guide to a Chuckle.” Imagine innovation as a ballroom, with ideas and insights waltzing and foxtrotting to the time-honoured tune of human ingenuity. It's a sprightly dance-off between the sagely and the silly, where the neurons don't just spark; they practically do the cha-cha.
We're not just cooking up tomorrow's world in a pot of the same old stew; we're in a culinary extravaganza where knowledge is the spice and creativity is the chef's secret sauce. As the landscapes of our lives constantly get a facelift, we're the plucky designers, sketching blueprints with pens of possibility and rulers of reason.
