The Future Retail Workshop In NYC

Published by on januari 14, 2019

I was this week attending at The Future Retail Workshop in New York USA – It was created by Evry, and encompassed some of the leading brands from the Nordic region (NK, Clas Ohlson, AMF Fastigheter, Lagerhaus etc). Upwards of 50-60 Vikings or more.
The discussions where extremely valuable, in that a game was created, exhibiting approaches to the creation of retail in the future.

There were a mix of games and “business model canvases”, which were adopted for retail.
In my opinion it was a fantastic suggestion to put us, the audience, into different groups, and do a video report on saving a hypothetical company in 6 months. Retailers were also briefed on how to use Apple products and move sales forward.
This was a pleasurable exercise in which we could envision its reality. Once again, I appreciated the audience being allowed to use their various skills.
Great lectures by Maks Giordano, Andrew McLaughlin and Ola Ahlvarsson.  To conclude the workshop, we received a moving lecture from Therese Gedda.
It was also thrilling to see construction taking place on the upcoming Fotografiska in NY…it will be amazing!!.

At a NY night club, the DJ played previous hits and great remixes – Perhaps this workshop could lead to “new hits” in retail by making a “Retail Remix”.

The workshop was located in a great place called The Future Project (a place with cool vibes).

Thanks to Evry, their partners, and all the Vikings in attendance, for a great workshop.

Innovation 2005 Ahead of Huawei Mate 20 Pro Wireless Charging

Published by on januari 7, 2019

Back in 2005 I developed an innovation idea in one of my books for Nokia.
One of the features was sharing batteries.
Now in 2018 Huawei Mate 20 Pro is introducing this innovation with wireless charging.
It is amazing that products now are becoming more social. I believe this is a great way to make technology inspire social connections. When this happens it will make IOT become social in real life (as opposed to presently existing only between our screens).

Nokia: How mobile phones can connect people using more than just words.
It is time to take connecting people to the next level, and do something to connect them physically, as well as theoretically.
One way to do this, surprisingly enough, is through hardware design.
One solution can be seen below, a new model that can literally bring people together. Read more.

Video: Wireless charging on Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Great social dimension to see in the video that Huawei works with an iPhone (connecting people & brands:)

PS: Thanks to Jörgen Wahl for sending the link.

Humor as a Nobel Prize category today?

Published by on december 10, 2018

Today is Nobel Prize Day.
This week, Swedish Stand-Up Artist, Sofia Nordgren, suggested that humor be added as a Nobel Prize Award category.
Sofia also joked that she was nominated to win the prize.  (She’s got my vote).
In my opinion, we are all in need of more humor, with all the wars taking place around the world, natural disasters, terrorist acts etc.
Humor is a great way to cope with these things and relax.

Why life, success and everything else’s is based on energy

Published by on december 5, 2018

After asking questions to everyone I meet my life time – I understand that everything in life is based on energy. With everything I mean life, success and basically everything.

Don’t get me wrong, it is not about a mystery, it’s only what it is.
The reason why legendary genius’ meet at a cafe in Florence with Leonardo da Vinci is not because they liked to go to that cafe, its simply that they shared the same energy.
A collective energy that some call collective mind or thinking.
I call it energy because that is what makes us connect to this power of creation.
Some will argue with me saying this is not science, well, there is a lot science can not prove.

Yet, If science could prove that I am right, then will copyrights, patents etc legally not work, because the genius Leonardo did not create his own work, he only connected himself to a collective energy. In my belief Homo Sapiens as individuals are capable of creating 10% of what Leonardo created in half his lifetime.

Six questions to Terence Dudley / Music Producer:

How does this collective energy work?

It is how talent finds talent. The energy makes talent attract each other as a magnetic attraction of energy. If you have the right mindset you can connect to this energy, but you need to be humble enough to be a part of this power of life and success.

Would Michael Jackson be successful if he was a new artist today?
Yes I believe Michael Jackson would succeed as a new artist today, because of his drive and his commitment to excellence.
Talent just gets your foot in the door in any business.
From what we’ve learned of his work ethic, his studying the greats, his non-stop eagerness to improve, these things separated him from the pack and kept him on top

Legendary Quincy Jones – How did he spot talent? And what is his magic?
I deduce Quincy’s “eye for talent” comes from him playing with so many greats artists in his childhood.
Many successful people in any industry were mentored by someone successful. Magic begets magic I guess. Success leaves clues.

Why do some at the top, share their knowledge and energy, with some new artists, and not others?

I will only speak for myself. I share what I’ve learned with anyone who cares to listen. Yet if an artist comes to me, and they talk to me like they have all the answers, I shut up.
As for me, I never want to be the smartest person in the room. So i surround myself with intelligent and energetic people, in order that I may listen and learn as well!

Looking back at your 30 year career, what are the 3 most important factors which influence you work with new talent?
New artists have great energy and a hunger for success, which I feed off of. Oftentimes they are willing to try new concepts, new combinations, and new ideas.
Its also motivating when they are appreciative of your time and efforts.

Is talent the Number 1 factor in becoming a success in the music industry?

From my experience, I say again, talent just gets your foot in the door, yet that doesn’t guarantee you success.
There are incredibly talented people playing in bars, or on the street, with no music industry deals.
Its all about the song …and the stars being aligned!
A great image and magnetic energy doesn’t hurt, yet a great song helps in launching someone to superstardom!!

Some facts about Terence Dudley:

Has worked professionally for over 30 years in the music industry with artists as 50 Cent, Mary J Blige, Left Eye (from TLC), Al B. Sure!, Kobe Bryant etc.

Update December 7, 2018:
Thank you Peter Sandberg. for your suggestion to mention that Terence and I were introduced by our mutual friend Charlotta Huldt. Charlotta is an example of pure positive energy.
