More information about Eddie Obeng we find in his speaker page from TED:

Our environment changes faster than we can learn about it, Eddie Obeng says. How do we keep up?

What will business look like in 5 years? (Er, what does it look like now?) Eddie Obeng helps executives keep up with a business and social environment that’s changing faster than we can know. Through Pentacle, his online business school, Obeng teaches a theory of management that focuses on adaptation to change. Called “New World Management,” it’s all about forming and re-forming workgroups, constantly re-evaluating metrics, and being open to all kinds of learning, from hands-on group exercises to a virtual lecture hall/meeting room called the QUBE.

    Hi. I just wanted to say thanks for featuring my TED Talk, and to tell you that I recently spoke at Google Zeitgeist Europe 2013 about ‘Generation Tomorrow’, and how it’s mindset, not age, that determines who will shape the future!
