Anders Indset is one of the world’s leading business philosophers and a trusted sparring partner to international CEOs and political leaders.
By bridging the philosophy of the past with the technology and science of tomorrow, Anders explains how leaders can cope with the 21st century.
Dubbed “Rock’n’Roll Plato” and “Digital Jesus” by European media, he is currently one of the most sought-after intellectuals with his approach to practical philosophy.
Thinkers50, the premier ranking of global business thinkers, regarded as the “Oscars of Management Thinking” by many, has recognised Anders on the Radar as one of 30 Global Thinkers “most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and led”.
For the 2019 Thinkers50 Gala his work on the “Q Economy” was a finalist for the Breakthrough Idea Award.
The native Norwegian, based out of Frankfurt, is a guest lecturer at leading international business schools, a founding partner of the Global Institute of Leadership and Technology and advisory board member of the Swiss-based deep tech pioneer Terra Quantum.
He is known for his unconventional way of thinking, his provocative theses and his rock star attitude.
His book “The Q Economy – What comes after Digital?” entered the Spiegel-Bestseller list and was #1 in Manager Magazin and Handelsblatt for the most sold business books in the German-speaking region.
Q Economy has already been translated and sold to 11 countries around the world.
The book has been updated in the UK and US for 2020 – The Quantum Economy – Saving the Mensch with Humanistic Capitalism.
“The Quantum Economy is a highly timely and truly relevant book– in this new world where Covid-19 and all the panic following it – begs us all to redefine how we live – and how we do business. A must-read for anyone in search for meaning in how to run businesses” Martin Lindstrom
His international bestseller “WILD KNOWLEDGE – Outthink the Revolution” was released in Europe in 2017 and has been translated into further languages in 2018 and was also a Spiegel-Bestseller in 2019.
His forthcoming book The Infected Mind is scheduled for early 2021.
Additionally, Philosophy@Work, a collection of philosophical concepts on how to cope with today’s technological fast-paced and complex society will be published Q3/2021.
