Kenneth Mikkelsen




Kenneth believes the future belongs to neo-generalists who live in more than one world.

Kenneth Mikkelsen is founder of Futureshifts and an associate of Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies and the Drucker Society.
As a writer, speaker, leadership adviser and executive educator, he combines leadership, history, philosophy, neuroscience, psychology and sociology in unique ways.

Together with Richard Martin, Kenneth co-authored the book The Neo-Generalist: Where You Go is Who You Are, which explores the value of multidisciplinary thinking, of living in more than one world.

Kenneth himself lives up to the premise of his book. A journalist by education, Kenneth has published widely on issues of leadership and the shifting nature of business in the 21st century in many leading media outlets.

Kenneth’s wide-ranging work is dedicated to improving the quality of leadership in the 21st century by influencing how people think, learn, behave and impact society.

He addresses the most important questions in life. How do we want to live? Where do we want to go? What we want to become? How do we learn? Who are we? By exploring these questions with people, he helps them live informed, meaningful lives and make wise choices that strengthen our society and leave a positive legacy for future generations.
