Creativity (Un)limited – Thinking Inside the Box for Business Innovation with Micael Dahlén

On Friday April 24th, Impact Executives UK joined Impact Executives Sweden for their bi-annual business breakfast.  This time the focus was Creativity (Un)limited – Thinking Inside the Box for Business Innovation.  

The well attended event saw executives gathered in Stockholm to hear Micael Dahlén, Professor of Economics at the Stockholm School of Economics who specializes in marketing and consumer behaviour, speak on how business innovation is created based on humans new-age needs.

Posing the question ‘What is happiness and how can we gain it in a world where, on average, we are only consistently happy for three months top?’ Dahlén concluded that humans search for other things to fulfil us and that it all comes back to communication. Ours is the only species that feel the need to communicate the way we do, as consistently as we do.

Humans are at their recorded peak with communication never being so open and available. So the answer to business innovation must lie within the way we communicate. Science shows that when people get together, our brains develop and grow to nurture new ideas. Surely this is worth promoting in every sense.

Impact Executives Sweden host 2 business breakfasts of this style each year. Speakers chosen are often linked to research, academia and inspiring and thought-provoking topics.

Feedback from attendees:

“Many thanks for an inspiring and thought-provoking morning!“

”Brilliant. Can we stream Micael and the same event, every time? ”

“Very fun and different, and made the audience start to think. Glad that you have the courage to break off from having only financial speakers.”

“Exciting people, inspiring, joyful and energizing.”
