    Frans Johansson - Thought Leader | Author | CEO of The Medici Group

    In the 12th episode of the 2nd Renaissance, Frans Johansson, author of the Medici Effect shares his insights on how diversity drives innovation and creativity. He shares his lessons from his best-selling book on how the intersection of fields of thought exponentially increase teams' and organisations' propensity for innovation, and why homogenous cultures pay a revenue and innovation penalty - as well as do brand damage to their employment brand. We embark on a future odyssey to explore how virtual / remote work might impact innovation output, and which talent clusters around the world will shape the future of humanity. This interview was a tour de force of Frans' intellect and as a futurist and friend, it was great to reconnect with Frans for this equally historic and futuristic voyage.
