Henri is currently working on a new book out in Autumn 2019.
Why We Fear – Unmasking the emotion that turns us into winners or losers in life and in business grips with the essence of fear gets to grips with the essence of fear in life and business. Why We Fear uncovers the mechanisms of fear and the vast role this often misunderstood emotion plays in our daily lives. At the same time, it dismantles fear into understandable and actionable parts. When fear is divided into its constituent parts, the hidden workings of fear and fear-based habits become visible. In this way, the book charts a road-map for how to deal with this often destructive emotion and the massive cost of fear in life and business.
Fear has always been at the very core of human experience, and yet people generally seem to believe that it is a force of nature outside their control. Fear is often seen as a mystical, poorly understood influence that creeps up on us at the worst possible moment, wrecks our performance, dulls our wits, and makes our lives shrink. Why We Fear robs fear of this mystique. In addition, as Henkka Hyppönen points out, fear is not always a disastrous and destructive force. Sometimes, a little injection of fear helps us to perform better as individuals and as teams.

The Great Transition to AI
Soon we will think of AI much like we do electricity: we will only notice it when it is not there. We are in the midst of this transition and it is time to decide how we would like to participate. This is, after all, a future we are able to shape. Henri kick starts the conversation with three central themes: how we implement technology, creativity, and AI, and what it means to be human in an AI-enabled world. This talk will give you new ways of thinking about how we can create a new world and a new dream team: the human mind and machine.
The Democracy of Creation and the Rise of Intelligent Machines
We are all creators now. In this new era, where humans have more possibilities and machines are more intelligent, our division of work will change. Through real-life examples and stories, Henri reveals this new world in the making and how creatives and business leaders can be a part of it.
Fear Can Make Us Really Stupid
To reach our highest potential, we must first understand one of our strongest emotions: fear. Using his extensive experience as a founder and leader of companies in the creative field and insights into the biology and psychology of fear, Henri shows the value of psychological security in the workplace, and how to create it so it stays.
How do you create a culture of creative problem solving, where people naturally challenge the status quo? Henri uses stories and insights from global creative leaders and successful creative companies to help you understand the building blocks needed to create a company where people aren’t afraid to take risks, your best talent stays around and they make cool shit.
We Should All Love Problems
Not all problems are created equal. What sets the best companies apart from the rest is their ability to find the most valuable problem. This commitment to value is what gives them the competitive edge. These problems are not always easy to find; they can hide deep within your business, or your customer’s life, the solutions have to be imagined and most of the time you won’t have an immediate business case for them. In this presentation, Henri helps you understand why learning to spot and solve valuable problems can transform your business.
