The global speaker bureau
Leif Edvinsson is probably best known as the first Chief Knowledge Officer in the world as he served as Corporate Director for Intellectual Capital, Skandia AFS and architect of the Skandia Future Centre. He currently serves as Professor of Intellectual Capital, University of Lund, and the founder and CEO of UNIC - Universal Networking Intellectual Capital AB. He is also special advisor to the Swedish Cabinet on the effects of the new digital economy, a special advisor to the United Nations International Trade Center and is a co-founder of the Swedish Coalition of Service Industries.
"Intellectual Capital is an offspring of the knowledge era"
Leif Edvinsson holds an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author for numerous articles on the service industry and on Intellectual Capital. His first book 'Intellectual Capital' has been praised worldwide as the best resource on how to recognise the value of a company's intellectual assets, which Edvinsson argues, can far exceed the value of its physical assets. In light of his work in both training and Intellectual Capital, Edvinsson has been a special advisor on service trade to the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
