Mikkel B. Rasmussen, Director EU, ReD Associates
Mikkel B. Rasmussen is an expert in innovation and business creativity. He has spent most of his professional life trying to push companies and organisations into new territories and doing it in a way that is both disciplined, based on facts, and forward-looking.

As Director of ReD Associates, European Division, he works closely together with the top management of some of Europe's most forward-looking companies, such as Adidas, Lego, and Samsung. His work has led to several ground-breaking technologies and products in the markets for toys, sports goods, and health care.
Unlike most people who are interested in business innovation he does not believe that ideas fall from the sky or can be generated in brainstorming sessions. The best ideas according to Mikkel come from a true interest in the real world and deep exploration into human behaviour. This requires rigour, discipline, and what Mikkel calls slow thinking as opposed to the common belief that creativity needs to be loose, random, and fast. In his work for ReD he has pioneered new thinking on how to make social science methodology practical, creative, and impactful in business.

Mikkel B. Rasmussen holds a Master of Science in Economics from Maastricht University as well as a Master in Public Economics from Roskilde University. He is a well-known keynote speaker and provocateur on innovation, business creativity, and the practical use of social science. He is the co-author of the book "The Moment of Clarity" published by Harvard Business Press in 2013 and published in 17 languages around the world. He has written numerous articles about the application of human science in business and has been featured in Businessweek, The Economist, Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.
