Nicklas Bergman is one of the foremost tech and futurist speakers in Europe, providing a technological perspective on society or on business.
Your audience to leave with a set of tools to handle the techstorm, or with a more awe-inspiring perspective on technology, maybe both!
With over 20 major tech investments under his belt, Nicklas Bergman is one of the most sought-out advisers and speakers on emerging technologies and their business implications. Nicklas spends extensive time with early-stage start-ups and keeping global businesses on par with the latest innovations so they can make the best decisions for their companies.
He has extensive knowledge of AI, nanotechnology, new materials, genetics, web services, and computing.
Bergman is the Scandinavian adviser to the TechCast Technology Think Tank in Washington DC, where he focuses on how technology transforms society. In 2016 Bergman published a book on how to deal with new technologies from a business perspective: Surviving the Tech Storm – Strategy in Times of Technological Uncertainty.
“I’m a strong believer that technology is one of the main drivers of change in business and society today. Often people bring up digitization, but when it comes to the question of ”disruption” (an extremely worn-out expression btw), digital is only the warm-up! True transformation will come from a combination of digital innovations, advances in nanotechnology and new materials, a deeper understanding of the human brain and the ability to understand every aspect of our genome and tailor our DNA.
The framework for understanding these effects are similar independently of what technologies are being discussed. One needs to analyze technologies, assess the business or societal effects, and then adapt to a new reality.
As a speaker, I always enter the stage with the goal to inspire, entertain, and educate with the promise to give you a new perspective on technology as well as examples of tools you will need for surviving the techstorm.
Also, as an advisor on technology, strategy and business transformation I’ve had workshops with the management teams of (among other) Air France, Novo Nordisk, Danone/Nutrica, Vestas, the top 10 division leaders at Siemens, partners at major Nordic law firms as well as an informal network of board members and chairpersons of some of the largest companies listed at the Nordic stock exchanges.”
