Creativity, leadership, and change
Jamie Anderson is Professor of Strategy at Antwerp Management School. He has held permanent and visiting positions at some of the world’s top business schools, such London Business School, IMD, ESMT Berlin, and the University of Melbourne.
Named as a "management guru" in the Financial Times, and as one of the world’s top 25 thinkers by the journal Business Strategy Review, Jamie has delivered more than 300 keynote presentation and lectures at conferences and workshops where he has spoken passionately with wit and humour.
He has extensive experience across many different industries, with especially strong insights into the Automotive, Financial Services, Technology & Telecommunications, Professional Services, and Fast Moving Consumer Goods sectors.
Unlike many speakers who give the same talk in any setting, Jamie's deep industry experience and extensive interactions with practicing managers enable him to adapt and customise his talks and workshops to be directly relevant to the business focus of his corporate clients.
In his research, he focuses on the interconnectivity between creativity, innovation, leadership, and corporate transformation. His articles have appeared in some of the world’s leading international journals, including MIT Sloan Management Review, California Management Review, and the Journal of Business Strategy. He has advised a range of Fortune 500 firms on approaches to corporate renewal.
As a compelling thinker and speaker, Jamie has been invited on to the TED stage three times in the past five years, and his ideas have been quoted in Business Week, the Economist, The Wall Street Journal and The Financial Times.
Jamie is a superb storyteller, and he believes that the discussion of important business concepts should always be fun. His wit and humour have seen him described as a "stand-up strategist".
