Tomas Björkman is a philanthropist, entrepreneur, former investment banker, philosopher, author of The Market Myth, The World We Create and co-author with Lene Rachel Andersen of The Nordic Secret. You can listen to the audiobook version of The World We Create here.
In 2016, he founded the Research Institute Perspectiva in London together with Jonathan Rowson. The aim of the institute is to inspire our political, academic and business leaders to examine real world problems with a deeper appreciation of the influence of our inner worlds.
In 2017, in partnership with the Norrsken foundation, Björkman launched the digital platform 29k.org. The platform aims to help you reconnect with yourself, like-minded people and what you value most in life.
Björkman has been a member of the Club of Rome since 2014. The Club of Rome describes itself as “an organisation of individuals who share a common concern for the future of humanity and strive to make a difference”. Björkman is also a fellow of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and a fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science.
This article published on the Emerge platform, and adapted from a conversation on Rebel Wisdom with David Fuller, provides an overview of his perspective on many of the same points covered in this conversation.
