This week on the show I brought on The Creativity Explorer, Fredrik Haren, to discuss how to increase your productivity and become more creative. Here is his bio:
Fredrik Haren is an author and global keynote speaker, based in Singapore. He speaks on business creativity and human innovation, on embracing disruption and change, and about the importance of having a global, human mindset. While some speakers claim they are global, few match Fredrik; he has given over 2,000 speeches in 67 countries across six continents of the world, and usually speaks in 20 to 30 countries a year.
He is the author of 10 books, the most significant ones being The Idea Book, Developing World and One World One Company. The Idea Book has sold over 200,000 copies, and was included in the 100 Best Business Books Of All Time. Fredrik draws on literally thousands of conversations and interviews he has had over the past 20 years, with business leaders from all corners of the globe. This unique experience allows him to connect with audience members from diverse cultures and backgrounds, and what makes being the global speaker for global conferences his speciality. He is invited to speak at conferences, client events, company offsite meetings and leadership development programmes. His use of storytelling, interaction and humour, along with his authentic speaking style, makes him one of the most sought-after and inspiring speakers in the world., Fredrik essentially believes in the potential of humanity and the power of ideas to achieve this. He understands that people are often resistant to change, yet also curiously creative. He encourages his audiences to embrace rather than fear disruption and change through becoming more creative and innovative, and to develop a truly global mindset.
What I love about Fredrik is that he's interviewed creative people ALL over the world and he was able to talk about the different ways creatives have cracked creativity and productivity in their countries. It's fascinating to see what is the same and different with creatives everywhere.
