Rank #3: Eric Edmeades

Podcast cover
Read more

What if you knew that mastering the art of public speaking was easy? That you could transform your business, your career and your life by getting to grips with this one skill? That you could find yourself a member of a global community with a hub (and a welcoming home) in every city around the world?


Well, that’s just what Eric Edmeades is on a mission to do. Eric is an author, serial entrepreneur and international business speaker. He has logged thousands of hours on stage, even sharing it with the likes of Tony Robbins, Richard Branson and Bill Clinton. Eric’s been involved in a variety of businesses ranging from mobile computing to Hollywood special effects, and now he has turned his attention to his latest project, creating a global movement called Speaker Nation.


“One of the greatest gifts that I ever gave myself was overcoming both my fear and my lack of confidence around communication. I changed my life by overcoming my nervousness and working to cultivate skills and learning how to engage an audience and communicate effectively.”


Learning to conquer his fear around public speaking inspired Eric to help others overcome their anxieties. He had already triumphed in the wellness world with his Wildfit programme, helping over 15,000 clients in 130 countries around the world change how they feel about food. Now he is determined to help others who are struggling to get their words out or struggling to create the kind of influence they want. 


He already runs The Speaking Academy, an outstanding and highly effective 5-day presentation skills training program, but Speaker Nation is a movement that will create an international community for aspiring and professional speakers who share in a common vision of a better future, that will make them better.


In this podcast:


  • The Speaker Nation launch in Amsterdam
  • Why overcoming his fear of public speaking was the best gift
  • The responsibility of enabling effective communication
  • Your democratic right to speak
  • The global dream for Speaker Nation
  • The connection to Mindvalley and Wildfit
  • Why leadership needs to focus on the people
  • Why we are living in the best possible time

Rank #5: Jan Broman

Podcast cover
Read more

Jan Broman, along with his brother, founded Fotografiska as a meeting place to inspire a more conscious world, using photography - portrait, fashion, nature and documentary photography, for example, to initiate conversations. Not just conversations about the here and now, but what the photos represent and the world around us. 


The renovated former Customs House, built in 1906 in the heart of Stockholm, is home to Fotografiska, now considered one of Scandinavia’s most important and powerful artistic magnets. 


Since opening almost ten years ago, Fotografiska has hosted some of the biggest names in photography from Annie Leibovitz to Gus Van Sant to Martin Parr. But Fotografiska is anything but a regular museum or art gallery. At its core it is a dedicated hub of human interaction, a creative space that nurtures thoughts and discussion and encourages the exchanging of ideas. 


As Jan says, “What we have become is more like a place where conversation can take place. And it can be inspired by what we do in the exhibition spaces, but it could also be inspired by what we do with the food, and helping people to get a bit more conscious.”


Because Fotografiska’s vision is to inspire a more conscious world, Jan and his brother are keen to share their values of inspiration, inclusion, innovation, sustainability and relevance not just with their partners, but with the people who come to meet there. To make its accessibility even greater and to make more impactful places for photography around the world, Fotografiska is very soon expanding to New York, and London not long after that.


“We see people meeting, meeting their friends, meeting family and loved ones. All kinds of meetings take place here. Fotografiska is more and more becoming a familiar sort of a place for conversations.”


In this podcast:


  • The importance of creating a space for meeting and talking
  • The value of talking
  • Why Fotografiska isn’t just relevant in Sweden, but around the world
  • How to be more conscious
  • How photography can raise awareness of global issues
  • The benefits of getting older   
  • If you run a company you have to be able to fight and change
  • Why the world needs more empathy right now

Rank #6: Reynir Indahl

Podcast cover
Read more

Reynir Indahl isn’t just a man who talks the talk, he is a man who walks the walk. 


Having had a wobble as he turned 40, questioning what he was doing and what impact he was having on the world, Reynir, much to his family and friends confusion, turned his back on his successful career in finance in order to focus on being a solution to the world’s most significant challenges. 


Drawing on his Harvard education, Reynir founded Summa Equity in 2016, a purpose-driven, Nordic private equity firm managing €1.4 billion, to invest in companies looking to solve global challenges.


“The world is developing rapidly. This poses new social and environmental challenges. By investing in companies that actively work to solve these challenges, creating a prosperous society for everyone, Summa is part of the solution.”


This isn’t Reynir’s first time on Corporate Unplugged, he originally sat down with Vesna in 2018 to discuss Summa Equity and the work it was doing, and now feels like the right time to catch up with Reynir again, to see how far he’s come and hear what he’s learned over the last few years. 


When Reynir first ventured into impact investing, he was concerned with the effect that the financial system was having on the world around us, and how companies are increasingly affecting environmental issues. But then he realised that everyone is feeling its effects - social inequality is on the increase, for example, and this concerned him because he didn’t know if he was part of the solution or part of the problem. 


So he took steps to rectify this. Which has subsequently led him to where he is today.  


“These challenges create immense opportunities in the financial system. And investors can be a big force for driving that change. So I decided to leave private equity and started to work with with philanthropy and impact investing.”


We hope you enjoy this podcast as much as we did. 


In this podcast:


  • Why Reynir credits the financial crisis as the transformational point in his life
  • How Summa Equity creates value
  • How Summa Equity chooses and works with the companies they invest in
  • Why Reynir’s passion is problem solving
  • How his kids are helping him see the world differently
  • Why companies need to unleash the creativity in their organisations
  • What Private Equity 4.0 is

Rank #9: Zoë Chance

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you often find yourself wishing you were more persuasive? Would you love to know the secret to making great decisions? Do you want to do more good and work for a business that does good in the world? Then you want to listen to Zoë Chance, the persuasion expert. 


Zoë studies and teaches behavioral science to help great people become more influential. At Yale School of Management, she works with executives and has developed a popular MBA elective called Mastering Influence and Persuasion, aka "Doing Uncomfortable Things That Make You a Better Person." Her course ‘How To Make Behaviour Addictive’ is also heavily in demand.


“The key insight that I’ve learned… is that the primary drivers of all of our decisions and all of our behaviours are unconscious.... we can't just reflect on those. We only perceive the conscious, rational processes of decision making. It's our gut first reactions that are actually very hard to change. And then, consciously, we look for reasons to be able to do those things that we already want to do.”


What the world needs most right now, according to Zoë, is to be able to create a more democratic marketplace of ideas. 


"The way information is shared these days is so consolidated and hierarchical, we miss out on most of the knowledge that exists."


In this podcast:


  • Why some companies and brands are really good at connecting emotionally to people
  • Mastering influence and persuasion
  • How to connect authentically with another person
  • Zoë’s new book - the general topic of the book is influence for nice people
  • Why Zoë’s mission is to help smart, well intentioned people become more influential
  • How we can transform more companies to be ‘humanity plus’ engines
  • Why she believes education needs innovation
  • Climate change should be the priority for every company right now

Rank #14: Robin Farmanfarmaian

Podcast cover

What would you do if you were misdiagnosed with an autoimmune disease as a teenager, subsequently spending 10 years undergoing major surgeries, having 3 organs removed and over 40 hospitalisations, and then once in remission find yourself sabotaged, sexually abused and harassed early in your career in Silicon Valley? 


Some people might shy away from the spotlight after all this, but Robin Farmanfarmaian is not most people. Far from it.

“Diseases or disorders like sleep apnea, cancer, autoimmune disease, infectious disease, and things like that all have more than 100 million patients worldwide. So I picked that number because it really tackles the biggest problems in healthcare in terms of which diseases are the most prevalent.”


Listen to this incredibly giving, inspirational woman share how she overcame personal and professional adversities to create the life and career that she has today.

Rank #15: Whitney Johnson

Podcast cover
Read more

The idea that the smallest innovation can cause the biggest disruption doesn’t just apply to products and things, it applies to people too, says Whitney Johnson, the world renowned expert on disruptive innovation and personal disruption. 


This is a person with 1.7 million LinkedIn followers, the one who was selected as a Top Voice in 2018, so she knows a thing or two about disruptive innovation. But Whitney hasn’t always been so influential. 


The best selling author and frequent lecturer for Harvard Business School’s Corporate Education began her career working on Wall Street as a secretary. Quickly realising she wasn’t going to make the money she needed, she began to take night courses and was able to transition from being a secretary to an investment banker. 


“For people who worked on Wall Street, like that just does not happen, that divide is so wide. And so for me, that was kind of a disruptive moment.”


Today, Whitney is recognised as being one of the world's most influential management thinkers and is best known for her work on driving corporate invention through personal disruption. She's the author of the books ‘Disrupt Yourself’ and ‘Build an A-Team’. 


She’s developed her own framework and diagnostics to dig deep into the important question of how executives can both create and destroy value. 


“When we're willing to become a silly little thing, we can maybe not take over the world, but we can certainly take over our world.”


In this podcast:


  • Where Whitney’s ideas about disruption first came from
  • Learn, leap, repeat
  • Why organisations need to encourage their individual employees to be disruptive
  • Learning outstrips money as a motivator
  • Learning makes the individual happy and benefits the organisation
  • Amateurs compete and professionals create
  • Why the world needs more love and prayers
