After writing my book for seven years, it was amazing to get such emotional and positive feedback on my first keynote speech with Homo Stupido.
SOME POINTS from the speech: • Are we intelligent enough to handle AI? No! BUT, AI will force us to improve our intelligence! When we don’t have a choice we can do magic by exploring our capabilities. • Do we really deserve this planet? • Peace will never be a stupid idea. • Our language functions as an algorithm for behavior • Do we have a choice to not be stupid? • I believe AI could make us smarter and kinder.
Thanks to the audience, Stefan Petersson, David Holm and the rest of the Dream Team at AIM North 2022!
Not in a million years did I think that my book, ONE, could inspire peace. But readers have told me that the book can lead to a better understanding of people and society (which can end wars).
I originally wrote the book to start a consumer revolution. And today it is consumers, through social media, who are demanding nations to end wars. I have thought about updating the book, but now I realize that the content could be the DNA for change and to build a better future on. So the thing I have changed is adding the word “peace” to the title: ONE: A Consumer Revolution for Peace.
In order to inspire peace, I want to give the whole book away for free. My humble hope is that its DNA will inspire and build a revolution for peace, so that one day soon we can be ONE WORLD! Download the ONE book for free here (PDF).
I have told many colleagues that Stefan is by far the most curious adult that I have ever met. He asks “Why?” repeatedly until he gets to the real root of a problem, challenge or opportunity. He approaches situations with an unbiased approach, and inspires teams by offering alternative perspectives that challenge the “truths” that we all develop over time as a result of experience. Stefan has worked closely with our sales and marketing team at Bio-Works over a 15 month period as an inspirational speaker and coach, helping us to find our inner sharks. Together, we have workshopped a number of ideas on how to identify, attract and retain new customers, and the results speak for themselves. (Just look at Bio-Works Investor Relations page to see our performance.) I warmly recommend Stefan to any team looking to sharpen its commercial skills. If you cannot honestly answer the question “Are you a shark?” with a “Yes”, invite Stefan to a meeting and hear what he can offer. CEO Jonathan Royce, Bio-Works
Professor Philip Kotler is a legend who started The World Marketing Summit, which is broadcast in 101 countries with +20 million in the audience. Stefan Engeseth is one of the speakers and he lectures on Sharkonomics.
Philip Kotler, often referred to as the father of modern marketing, started the WMS (The World Marketing Summit) event, which is broadcast live for 48 hours globally. This year, they have expanded their digital platform to a Netflix-version to reach the maximum people. For Stefan, it was a great honor to be able to lecture with his role model Philip Kotler. The stage was filled with 90 eminent lecturers and heads of state from around the world, such as Berkeley, Wharton, London Business School, Google, Facebook, Nissan, PepsiCo, BNP Paribas, Microsoft, DDB and Unilever.
WMS 2021 is the world biggest online summit The audience, which figures around +20 million, is impressive and it is a world class event. The most important thing, however, is not the number in the audience, but to be able to contribute with knowledge, and inspiration, that leads to a better world.
