Frans Johansson

Thought Leader, Author, CEO of The Medici Group

Frans Johansson has inspired readers and audiences worldwide with his ideas on leadership and success, innovation, and diversity. He has spoken to audiences on six continents, in virtually every industry and across disciplines, from creatives to engineers, financiers to scientists, and politicians to humanitarians. He has been featured on ABC, CNN, CNBC, the PBS Newshour, and National Public Radio.

Frans’ debut book "THE MEDICI EFFECT" offers examples of how to turn ideas into path-breaking innovations. Translated into 20 languages, THE MEDICI EFFECT has become the definitive book on how diversity drives innovation, influencing numerous industries and fields such as architecture, design, economic development, education, and investing. Frans' follow-up book, "THE CLICK MOMENT", explores how serendipity plays a much larger role in success than previously suspected, and that expertise and logic can be hindrances rather than assets.

In his role as thought leader and CEO of The Medici Group, Frans has advised executive leadership at Fortune 500 companies such as Disney, IBM, ESPN and Nike. The Medici Group helps organizations learn how to innovate by harnessing the unique diversity of their people.

Frans has written articles on healthcare, information technology, and the science of sport fishing. He founded a software company, an international healthcare firm, and a hedge fund.
