Fredrik Haren Biography

Fredrik Haren is an author and keynote speaker on Business Creativity, Change and Global Business who has delivered 2,000 presentations in over 60 countries on 6 continents.

He is the author of 10 books, including “The Idea Book” which was included in “The 100 Best Business Books of All Time” as well as the author of “One World.

Fredrik knows how to craft a speech so that, let’s say, an American, a Brazilian, a German and a Chinese all will be inspired and laugh and the same time feel that they walk away from the session with meaningful take-aways that were relevant to them.

Fredrik is a truly global speaker, with examples from all over the world – suitable for your global (or international) conference.
