16:15: Keynote: Magnus Lindkvist - Why The Future Begins - A journey into the next digital decade.

We live in a world full of impulse entrepreneurs, Pokemon chasers and robots intent on stealing our jobs. That’s the good part. Less encouraging is the economic turbulence, the information overload and entrenched political battle lines. How can we escape this "prison of the present” and create the future?

That is the starting point for Magnus Lindkvist’s talk at Ascend by Epi. Based on research he has done for his many bestselling books about trendspotting and future thinking, Lindkvist will share a radically different view of what future thinking is all about and how you - as a digital hero - can reach escape velocity and create not just kickass experiences but a better tomorrow. Prepare to be dazzled!

Speaker: Magnus Lindkvist, Trendspotting Futurologist
