Stefan Hyttfors is an acclaimed futurist, author and global speaker.
”The future is about how we create new, rather than capitalize on old, forms of society and business models to expand wealth and quality of life. So that’s what I do; I study change and I try to inspire as many as possible to embrace it.”
Stefan’s top themes & topics for 2023:
Only old people talk about digital
While most companies still have a lot of work with the digital transformation, their customers’ and employees’ expectations will hint at where we are. Yesterday’s buzzwords, such as wearable devices, cloud computing, and cryptocurrencies, is today’s reality.
You might still think of experiences as ”real” or ”digital,” but your children don’t. They are busy playing games and meeting with friends on platforms such as Roblox. Digitalization and ultimately, the emergence of a new world – the metaverse – is already a fact.
This means there is a whole new universe to explore.
So what are you waiting for?
Sustainability is no longer a cost, it’s one of the big opportunities for profitable growth.Customers as well as Wall Street are all looking for the next Tesla.
NFT’s for leaders

In a time characterized by change, a culture brave enough to challenge experience is even more valuable than experience itself.
In a fast changing environment, the risk is not to lose what we have but to miss out on the new
When the unknown gains are a thousand times greater than whatever we want to keep, we must acknowledge the problem of loss aversion.
Sustainability is the greatest business opportunity of a lifetime.
In the past decade, decarbonising the global economy has moved from being a problem to the greatest business opportunity of the century. The shift from brown to green is no longer about CSR or charity but rather about increased growth and profitability; the race to zero has begun.
Digitalisation is done
Exponential growth in technology like digitalization means everyone will have access to advanced technology, so this is no longer a competitive edge. In the digital world, competition will be all about human emotions.
