An acclaimed international speaker, bestselling author, and advisor to Fortune 500 CEOs, Frans Johansson has inspired audiences worldwide – in virtually every industry and across disciplines, from creatives to engineers, financiers to scientists, and politicians to humanitarians – with his ideas on business transformation, innovation, leadership, and diversity, while his practical insights have empowered thousands to take action.
Johansson’s debut book, The Medici Effect, was hailed by innovation legend Clay Christensen as “one of the most insightful books on managing innovation that I have ever read,” while his follow up, The Click Moment, was cited by Fast Company as the book that challenges traditional business-school thinking. Since its publication, The Medici Effect has become the definitive book on diversity driving innovation, influencing numerous industries and fields such as architecture, design, economic development, education, scientific research, and investing.
As an innovation and change transformation expert, Johansson has advised executive leadership at Fortune 500 companies such as Walt Disney Company, US Navy, IBM, Nike, Pfizer and Mastercard. He has been featured on ABC, CNN, CNBC, the PBS Newshour, and National Public Radio. Currently, Johansson is founder and CEO of Via Renaissance, which he recently launched to disrupt traditional behavior change management in the workplace.
Raised in Sweden by his African-American/Cherokee mother and Swedish father, Johansson has lived all his life at the intersection. He has written articles on healthcare, information technology, and the science of sport fishing. Throughout his career, Frans has founded a software company, an international healthcare firm, and a hedge fund. Johansson holds a B.S. in Environmental Science from Brown University and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.
Johansson’s thought leadership centers on:
● Innovation – what drives innovation, how to gain an innovative edge in your industry, why people matter to innovation, and what it takes to develop an innovation mindset and how to lead innovation.
● Business Transformation - enabling leaders and their organizations to adapt to global change and shifting cultures for growth and high performance.
These two talks represent foundational themes that can be adapted to the client's audience and goal of the event.
The AI Moment
Unlock your innovation capabilities with a keynote that dives deep into the transformative power of new innovations like AI. In this talk, Johansson will share how to create pivotal moments and opportunities where AI, combined with other technology, can catapult your business to new heights. He will also share how to best go about exploring these technologies, why the most meaningful insights might not come from the obvious experts and why your speed of execution matters more than ever.
This talk distinguishes the flash-in-the-pan trends from genuine breakthroughs, arming you with strategies to be a proactive ‘Change Driver’ in your organization. By the end, you’ll know how to identify and act on the enduring innovations that offer real value. Don’t be a follower of trends - anticipate them or, even better, create them.
Innovation and Growth Driven by DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion)
The world is changing fast. Today more people than ever move between cultures and countries. Companies, cities, even nations, must compete on a global basis just to stay even. Based on his bestselling book, The Medici Effect, diversity has become a key driver for innovation, growth and performance. Johansson explains how today’s most innovative companies form culturally diverse talent pools and teams as a specific strategy to innovate. These companies have become #1 brand leaders, R&D centers—and very profitable. In this program, Frans clearly and persuasively shows what happens when different cultures collide and ignite an explosion of extraordinary new ideas and discoveries.
