Ma Steinsvik

Ma Steinsvik is passionate about emerging technologies and believes in the power of digital transformation and AI in order to scale business transformation towards a circular economy. Because an augmented circular future will lead to a better world. 


Ma is a European business leader, futurist and investor, and the CEO of Bulls Holding, an international agency for film, literary and art-based brands, influencers and editorial content, and Chair of the Board of R&B Licensing, a global 360 agency for literary and design based properties. She is an acknowledged international keynote speaker on technical leaps and their impact around the world. 


Ma discusses the foundations of business, of being a part of something big and giving back. And how even now, while the whole world is going through one of the toughest times in living memory, we still see people who, when they have their own lives secured, do what they can to contribute and give back to society. 


?When I invest in companies I'm often so struck by the generosity I receive back in the form of knowledge and network and tips and so on, because people, entrepreneurs and leaders, people of all kinds really want to give back. And if you look at it from a psychological point of view, that's when we're really happy.?

Ayse Birsel

What is design and who is it for? 


This loaded question is asked of Ayse Birsel, named by Fast Company as one of the Most Creative People in Business. Ayse is a beautiful blend of East meets West, born and raised in Turkey but who now calls New York home. 


?The combination of East and West, being Turkish living in the States, really allows me to see two sides of everything, which is a great quality, actually a superpower for designers, especially when those qualities are often in opposition to each other.?


And there is no better person to pose this question to: Ayse is a designer and innovator who has designed hundreds of award winning products and systems for Fortune 500 brands. She's known for bringing new solutions to old problems and for her humanistic design approach. 


She's also the author of Design The Life You Love, and gives lectures on Design The Work You Love to corporations. She's also the co-founder of Birsel Plus Seck, the award winning design and innovation studio and consults for a large number of big brand businesses. Her work can be found in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). 


If anyone knows design, it?s Ayse (pronounced Eye-Shay). And she?s keen to show people that rather than letting the current pandemic get the better of us, we should use it as inspiration to redesign our lives. 


?Constraints are necessary for great opportunities. If this is the biggest constraint that we've ever had, this should be our biggest opportunity as well.?

Tara Schuster

We?ve all suffered from ?Not Enough Syndrome? at some point in our lives. 


?In our relentless pursuit for external validation, we've lost sight with the fact that validation actually comes from within always, and I think that actually applies to business and products.?


Tara Schuster was told early on to pick a lane and stick with it. She couldn?t be or do more than one thing, but luckily for the rest of us she rejected this notion and has since become an author, playwright, and accomplished entertainment executive, currently serving as Vice President of Talent and Development at Comedy Central. 


In her first book, Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies, which lies at the intersection of self-help humour and memoir, she shares hard-won lessons in learning to love and care for yourself.


?I think we are very good at being mean to ourselves and treating ourselves with such little care. I mean shocking because we'll treat a guest 10X better than we'll treat ourselves.?


This episode is as brutally honest as her book and a refreshing listen for anyone who is struggling with self-doubt.

Anna Bäck

With everything going on globally, taking your physical mailbox online is probably one of the smartest decisions you could make. Not just to protect yourself, but to protect the environment too. 


It?s such a smart move that today over 3.7 million Swedish people, almost half of the grown up population in Sweden, have Kivra. That?s roughly 25,000 companies and organisations that rely on Kivra, the digital mail company, for important letters, invoices, doctor?s appointments, salary specifications and so on. 


Anna Bäck is an entrepreneur and innovation leader who?s been leading a number of startups in China and Sweden, and most recently driving innovation and disruption as a design leader within McKinsey.


This is an incredibly interesting conversation, learning about Anna?s influences and transformational points in her life that have led her to where she is today - to a business model that goes hand in hand with doing good and driving a more sustainable future.


This is an inspirational podcast with an inspirational leader.

Jen Grace Baron

You might think it an impossible task to find inspiration in these troubled times. But according to Jen Grace Baron, co-founder and Chief Inspiration Officer at InspireCorps, an inspiration strategy firm that partners with organisations to drive business growth and also innovation, it?s precisely during times like these when we are most likely to find inspiration. 


?Some of what people find most inspiring in their whole lives, are some of the hardest times that they had been through or had survived.?


Inspiration is a complex entity, something that is hard to define in itself without using the word ?inspiration?. It?s not a smiley thing that works just in the good times, it?s not something that we do only when it?s convenient, inspiration is a critical foundation for healthy humans. 


Inspiration is especially critical during times of crisis, such as the one we are enduring right now. 


?We found that during times of crisis, the ways that we act in the world change, right, all of how we're thinking and seeing the world changes. And in that unfreezing, there is an opportunity to shape new mindsets, to create new, powerful connections, to reinvent how we do business.?


So if you?re struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel, don?t despair, let this inspirational woman inspire you to bring about new change.

Garry Ridge

WD-40 Company has one of the highest employee engagement rates in the world (93%). And no wonder, at its helm is Garry Ridge, Chairman of the Board and CEO. 


Garry has been with the company for almost 33 years, having worked his way up through the managerial ranks to the top position, he knows what great company culture looks like, so much so, he not only practices what he preaches, he teaches it to the next generation of leaders too. 


Having realised that micromanagement as a leadership technique isn't scalable, if Garry wanted to take the blue and yellow can with the little red top to the world, he knew he?d have to set his employees free, to give them freedom to do their best work. So when he became CEO, he went back to school and worked hard to create an extraordinary workplace culture in WD-40 Company. 


?In 394 BC, Aristotle said, ?pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work?. And I really believe that that's something that we need to do, to build an economic environment for our companies that firstly serves the people in the organisation. And if we take care of them, they will take care of our customers. So that's where the journey began.?

Roberto Verganti

When Roberto Verganti first appeared on Corporate Unplugged, his episode quickly became one of the most listened to interviews on the show. Two years on, Roberto, Professor of Leadership and Innovation at Politecnico di Milano, currently founder and Director of The Garden-Center for Design and Leadership at Stockholm School of Economics, joins Vesna for another illuminating conversation, this time about meaning, purpose, innovation and real leadership. 


Why a reappearance? 


Because the subjects Roberto has been researching and writing about for the last couple of decades are more interesting and relevant today than ever before, and his ideas, insights and work need to be shared with an even wider audience. 


If companies and leaders want to make an impact, they need to provide meaning to their customers through their products and services. Companies should be thinking: ?If they don't need what we do, it's our problem. It's not their problem.? And the best leaders are the ones who have learned to say: ?I don?t know, but I'm curious to know, and now we discover together?.


If you missed Roberto?s first episode where he talks about why less is more, how to navigate in a world full of opportunities and why we need to understand social sustainability, do listen to it (link below).

Why it?s human nature to find meaningThe importance of having a purposeHow to innovate your productThe power for leaders of saying ?I don?t know?Why fear prevents learning and kills curiosityThe KPIs through which you measure purpose and meaning

Kristoffer Triumf

What makes a really listenable podcast? Is it a great production value? A plethora of interesting guests? A personable host? Whatever it is, Kristoffer Triumf, host of popular Swedish podcast Värvet, has figured the podcast magic out. 


Kristoffer is a popular podcaster and host of Värvet, Sweden's favourite podcast. What makes the podcast so incredibly relatable is that he has very deep dialogues with a very diverse crowd of people - from filmmakers to artists to business leaders, Kristoffer has interviewed over 400 people so far, and counting. 


He originally set out to chat particularly with comedians, but has since broadened his horizons to a much wider audience, and he?s been richly rewarded for his diversification in guests - Värvet has had around 90 million downloads to date. 


Besides having a voice that you can?t help but be drawn to, he has also developed the art of really listening to what his guests are saying. He leaves time for them to truly reflect on his question before answering, meaning they can express what they want to express and he doesn?t interrupt them, nor does he cut them off short. In a sense, Kristoffer affords guests a sense of psychological safety, which is apparent in his dialogue with each and every person. 


Kristoffer also has a genuine interest in people - a trait that is very unusual nowadays, but something that needs to be encouraged in more people. Because with a genuine interest comes the ability to really connect with someone, and in turn allowing them space to express who they are, meaning we can learn a lot more from them. 


?I think it's always important to understand someone, to learn from people, to understand where they come from, you know, why do they do what they do??

Zoë Chance

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 peopleMastering influence and persuasionHow to connect authentically with another personZoë?s new book - the general topic of the book is influence for nice peopleWhy Zoë?s mission is to help smart, well intentioned people become more influentialHow we can transform more companies to be ?humanity plus? enginesWhy she believes education needs innovationClimate change should be the priority for every company right now

Whitney Johnson

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... We know from the theory of disruption that when you pursue a disruptive course, your odds of success are six times higher and your revenue opportunity is 20 times greater.?


In this podcast:

Where Whitney?s ideas about disruption first came fromLearn, leap, repeatWhy organisations need to encourage their individual employees to be disruptiveLearning outstrips money as a motivatorLearning makes the individual happy and benefits the organisationAmateurs compete and professionals createWhy the world needs more love and prayers

Eric Edmeades

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.

Reynir Indahl

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 lifeHow Summa Equity creates valueHow Summa Equity chooses and works with the companies they invest inWhy Reynir?s passion is problem solvingHow his kids are helping him see the world differentlyWhy companies need to unleash the creativity in their organisationsWhat Private Equity 4.0 is

Jan Broman

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 talkingThe value of talkingWhy Fotografiska isn?t just relevant in Sweden, but around the worldHow to be more consciousHow photography can raise awareness of global issuesThe benefits of getting older   If you run a company you have to be able to fight and changeWhy the world needs more empathy right now

Ulf Stenerhag

If, like us, you are captivated by the inspiring actions of a select few individuals who are devoted to save the planet, then you want to listen to this podcast with Ulf Stenerhag, the Swedish entrepreneur who doesn?t believe passion is driving him in his quest to bring about change for the future generations, but a sense of compassion and responsibility.


Because that is the kind of man Ulf is: understated, not a self publicist. In fact, for his latest venture, Wayout, they haven?t actually launched it yet publicly, because they?re too busy just getting on with, well, getting on with it. His company hopes to empower people by way of job opportunities, resolve issues of scarcity of water, and reducing or eliminating plastic consumption.


?We are, let's say hard, hard working people, working more on deploying, rather than to shout about it. And there is also a reason for that, we want to make sure that everything works out fine before we go very, very public.?


But Ulf shouldn?t fear failure. This is a guy who is the CEO of Thurne Teknik, a Nordic Tech Trade company with many years of experience in leading international and industrial sales organisation. A man who has built up significant experience creating value-based corporate cultures in challenging global business environments. The founder of Not For Sale Ale, a company built for social impact and a beer where 100% of profits is invested in the fight against modern slavery. No, Ulf is a one man war on creating change, and his ?just get on with it? attitude is inspirational. 


?If you want to do important things in this life, first start, then continue.?


In this podcast:

Why a lack of courage stymies activityWhy people separate their agenda in their professional life from their personal lifeWhat we can learn from the world?s smallest petrol stationHow to build company cultureWhy the most important thing for companies is to figure out their purposeThe importance of letting employees explore their own personal valuesWhy the world needs leadership, hope and bravery most right nowIf you want to do important things in this life, first start, then continue.

Maria Cristina Papetti

If we want to change the world, instead of fighting against the system from the outside, how about taking a leaf out of Maria Cristina Papetti?s life book, and try to change the world from the inside?


?Being an activist, that is not easy, because you need a lot of energy, a lot of passion. But from the outside, always fighting all the time against something, that is easy. It?s what you can do when you are inside the system, that some would say, is more challenging.?


And Maria Cristina embodies the passionate purpose that the company she works for, exists to fulfill. Enel, a global Italian utility company believes that ?sustainability will not develop without continuous innovation and for us innovation is meaningless unless it is oriented towards sustainability.?


Enel couldn?t have chosen a better person to be their Head of Sustainability Projects and Practice Sharing, because Maria Cristina is not just dedicated to her work - what she does is so much more than just a job, you see, Maria Cristina?s desire to change the world through sustainability and innovation is a part of who she is. 


?I'm always asking myself, even nowadays, what kind of woman you would like to be in your future? for young professionals entering this world, be curious about people, about the world, about friends, about what is all around you. This is really important, if you get that, if you make a deep dive into everything, because you need to catch and to understand what can be done.?


In this podcast:

How to bring about change through sustainability and innovationThe importance of embedding sustainability into business and creating a new cultureHow a utility company can better the world we are living inWhy we all have a purposeInnovation can make your business more sustainableOpen powerWhy young professionals need to be curiousIt is important that you live the life you are here to liveThere is no Planet B

Tracey Turner

Today?s guest is the Founder and Executive Chairman of Copia Global, Tracey Turner. Passionate about social businesses, social investing and international development, Tracey talks to us about using capitalism to end global poverty.  


Inspired by a class she took in her first semester at Dartmouth called ?The Politics of Starvation,? and by her travels to Africa, Asia and Latin America, Tracey has seen first-hand that people in the developing world are incredibly talented, hardworking and intelligent. What they lack is opportunity. 


And having worked in microfinance before founding Copia Global, Tracey is a firm believer that capital constraints keep people trapped in poverty. In fact, in America alone, 98% of venture capital goes to white men and the remaining 2% to white women and minorities. According to Tracey, if minorities and low-income people had access to venture capital, the world would be a dramatically different place.


On today?s podcast:

How using capitalism can end global povertyThe advantages of running a for-profit over a not-for-profit when trying to help the world?s poorest peopleWhy startups need to stay lean in the beginningThe world?s greatest evil, besides oil, is an under-utilised mindMicrofinance is what is good about capitalism, it helps people raise themselves out of povertyWhy entrepreneurs should embrace failure
