Anders Indset believes technology is not limited to its answers and possibilities, but to the human capacity to ask questions and think about possible outcomes. In his work, he refers to this as “the art of being wrong” – or simply practical philosophy. Recently, Anders has shared reflections on the social and business implications of exponential technologies as artificial intelligence with ChatGPT/OpenAI and Quantum Technology now becomes mainstream.


Although Anders foundation is rooted in philosophy and practical implication of initiated projects he has spoken at many conferences where he has been recognized as a leading futurist.


With the advent of Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Quantum technologies, the topics of Leadership and Technology and their relation to Philosophy becomes even more relevant.

Anders Indset brings practical background from a decade as a leadership and strategy consultant to fortune 500 companies. He has invested in and founded several companies and is the founder of the investment and consulting firm Njordis and also the cofounder of the business school Global Institute of Leadership & Technology (GILT), where he chairs the practical philosophy faculty.


He is the author of three bestsellers, ‘The Quantum Economy,’ ‘Infected Thinking,’ and ‘Wild Knowledge.’ His books have been translated into more than ten languages.


Through his involvement and investment in one of the world’s leading quantum technology companies, Terra Quantum, and as co-initiator of the Global Blockchain Initiative, Anders has a deep understanding of the implications of technological developments.

He has published papers on Singularity and on the Simulation Hypothesis with reflections on artificial intelligence and exponential technologies. In his recent publications, ‘The Final Narcissistic Injury’ and “Are we living in a (Quantum) Simulation?” he takes a look at the foundations of technological progress for humanity.

Anders presents in a variety of styles ranging from his unique thinking-out-loud leadership jam sessions to his inspiring keynotes with sound, videos and unparalleled visuals. Anders’ gigs are all tailor made to serve target audiences through education, entertainment, and empowerment. He also enjoys interview settings and has joined panel discussions on multiple occasions.

Philosophy@Work: Reflections from the world’s leading business thinkers.

For decades business management teams have learned lessons and absorbed wisdom from an array of disciplines – psychology, sociology, biology and more – but philosophy, and the wisdom it embodies, has long been overlooked. World-renowned business philosopher Anders Indset wants to correct this oversight through his mission to introduce practical philosophy into every organisation.

Intended as a source of inspiration, Philosophy@Work explores the integration of philosophical tenets into the business landscape, and how they can be applied to personal development, the art of leadership and coping with the forces of change.

Within its pages are reflections from twenty-seven of the world’s leading business thinkers, including Dorie Clark, Erica Dhawan, Mark Esposito, Stew Friedman, Marshall Goldsmith, Anil K. Gupta, Gianpiero Petriglieri, Haiyan Wang and many more. Through articles, interviews, and essays, they share their insights into the profound impact philosophy can have on business.

This is a starting point to a world of practical applied philosophy, a first glimpse into the beginning of a new era.

The Quantum Economy: Saving the Mensch with Humanistic Capitalism.

Algorithms are increasingly becoming authorities and competing directly with humans. Recommendation engines have long taken control of our lives. We are threatened by a final narcissistic injury, and we are alienated by the fatal information society that we live in. But humans are still the ‘gluons’ that connect our perceived reality – the environment, society, and the economy – with our inner world: what it means to be a human being, a Mensch. If we want to ensure that the machines continue to serve us after the digital tsunami, then now is the time to leverage the full power of our reason to build a humanistic society.

"A must-read for anyone who does not just want to see the future, but
wants to be an active part of it.”
Marshall Goldsmith, Two-time Thinkers 50 #1 Leadership Thinker

"Anders Indset's thought-provoking new book is a must-read, and one I wish I had read prior to the outbreak of the pandemic."
Dorie Clark, author of "Reinventing You" and Member of Executive Education Faculty Duke University Fuqua School of Business.

“The Quantum Economy is a highly timely and truly relevant book. This new
world – with Covid-19 and all the panic following it – begs us all to
redefine how we live and how we do business. A must read for anyone in
search for meaning in how to run businesses.”
Martin Lindstrom, New York Times best-selling author of Small Data and Buyology
