Dr Jonas Ridderstråle is at the forefront of the new generation of European-based business gurus. He cuts through the madness and hyperbole surrounding the global economy and his appeal is truly global. Jonas has attained tremendous media coverage throughout the world.

The 2005 Thinkers 50, the bi-annual global ranking of management thinkers, ranked him (and his colleague Nordström) at number nine internationally and as the leading European business guru.

Dr. Ridderstråle holds an MBA and a PhD in international business and has been recognized as Sweden's outstanding young academic of the year. Formerly, he was an assistant professor at the Stockholm School of Economics where he was responsible for the school's Advanced Management Program. Jonas is currently a visiting professor at Ashridge Business School in the UK. His research focuses on new organizational models and leadership styles in the information age and has been published in leading academic journals. Jonas contributed to the best-selling Financial Times Handbook of Management and Business: The Ultimate Resource. He is on the editorial board of The Capstone Business Encyclopaedia.

His uncompromising, imaginative and decidedly funky take on contemporary business life has made Jonas one of today's most sought after speakers. With his extensive experience Dr. Ridderstråle is widely admired for his integrity and insight and is considered to be one of the most prominent business professionals. He assists corporations to prosper in the global marketplace and cuts through the madness and hyperbole surrounding the global economy making his appeal truly global.

Jonas practices what he so persuasively preaches. With his unorthodox combination of academic rigor, forceful logic and funky free-thinking he hits home hard with a powerful message for businesses worldwide.
