Christian Madsbjerg: Hachette Speakers Bureau

Christian Madsbjerg

Strategist and Business Philosopher

Christian Madsbjerg is the co-founder of ReD Associates and Senior Partner at ReD’s New York office. Christian has been leading projects and client programs since ReD’s foundation, focusing on ways to rigorously study human behavior and understand the use of particular methodologies in order to do so. He writes, teaches, and speaks about the kinds of methods and reasoning needed for fact-based investigations of human activity, emotions, and decision-making processes.

Christian is interested in social and cultural theory; our stories, worlds, songs, practices – how we find our way around in the world. Applying that to the world of commerce is important, but secondary.

Christian’s latest book ‘The Moment of Clarity: Using the Human Sciences to Solve Your Hardest Business Problems’ was published by Harvard Business Review Press in February 2014. He is currently working on a new book titled ‘Sensemaking: The Power of the Humanities in the Age of the Algorithm,’ to be published by Hachette Group in the spring of 2017.

Christian studied philosophy and political science in Copenhagen and London and has a Masters from the University of London.
