Speakers for 2017
Former Swedish Prime Minister
Fredrik Reinfeldt has been active in Swedish and international politics for over 25 years. Reinfeldt reinvented the Moderate Party (centre- right) creating the New Moderates and entered into an alliance with three other centre and centre-right parties. The four-party alliance won two successive elections and Reinfeldt, as Prime Minister, presided over two coalition governments (2006-14) – the longest non-socialist government period in modern Sweden.
During his time as Prime Minister, Reinfeldt reformed the Swedish economy and labour market, making Sweden one of the most competitive countries in Europe. More than 300,000 new jobs were created despite the financial crisis. The Swedish economy had higher growth rates and sounder public finances than many other European countries during his time in office. Sweden was also the only country in the EU that lowered its national debt during the financial crisis.
Reinfeldt was elected as chair to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) in 2016. The EITI is a coalition of stakeholders from government, civil society, oil, gas and mining companies and investors, working together to promote open and accountable management of natural resources. Over the past decade, they developed the EITI Standard, which is now implemented by 49 countries around the world.
In 2016 Reinfeldt was also appointed as a senior adviser at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Reinfeldt is an experienced speaker with almost thirty years of experience in public appearances both in Sweden and internationally.
He talks about changes in Sweden, Europe and the world. How are we affected by these changes, and how should we adapt and renew ourselves? What kind of leadership and what experiences are important for managing constant change.

Software Licensing, Data Protection, Outsourcing, Intellectual Property, Internet Law and Technology Transactions). She previously worked as an attorney at Baker & McKenzie law firm and Nokia, focused on IT and IP law. She is a trusted advisor on digitalisation and privacy issues to C-level management in e.g. E-health, Cloud, Online and Retail.
Digital Philosopher & Artist
Alexander is a cyberphilosopher, music producer, television show host, and highly sought-after international lecturer. He is the author of the globally successful The Futurica Trilogy – co-written with media theorist Jan Söderqvist, and so far translated to over 20 languages – consisting of The Netocrats, The Global Empire and The Body Machines.
October 2014 sees the release of Alexander’s fourth book with Söderqvist: Syntheism – Creating God in The Internet Age, in which the authors set out to construct a complete new metaphysical system for the digital age, covering everything from the inner existential truths of the new physics to the radical utopian potential of participatory culture.
Alexander studied Economic Geography at The Stockholm School of Economics in the 1980s while building a highly successful international career as a songwriter and record producer. In 1992, he and his business partner Ola Håkansson co-founded Stockholm Records – which quickly achieved global success with bands like The Cardigans, A-Teens, and Bard’s own Army Of Lovers – which went on to become Scandinavia’s biggest independent record company before it was sold to Universal Music in 1998.
Even though he has claimed to be too busy with cyberphilosophy and political and spiritual activism to find the time for any more songwriting, Alexander achieved No 1 hit records in both Europe, Asia and North America as late as 2013. Never afraid of entering the stages himself on which he builds his groundbreaking theories, Alexander has become (in)famous for his controversial television performances as a flamboyant star judge on Swedish Idol.
Alexander has given lectures on the philosophical, sociological, and economic implications of the internet revolution at the Stockholm School of Economics and other academic institutions worldwide since the late 1990s. Having Alexander as a keynote speaker means extraordinary lecturing and not just another predictable power-point presentation. Having made it a habit to talk dressed in haute couture shorts and an impressive fin de siècle beard, Alexander gives impressive speeches and interesting insights into his thinking. He makes an ideal match to enlighten business and management conferences around the world.
