I am committed to improving the state of the world - One Brain at the Time

The world is changing – are you FUTURIZING ?

Lene Gammelgaard is a futurizing doer,
a genuine humanist who invents mental strategies that innovate our futures as part of the 4 Industrial Revolution

My existential mission statement is to expand Human innovation & Decency Leadership for the greater good of Humankind.

Lene is a futurist who bridges what is now and what will be – mobilize visions with leaders, enterprises and organizations intent on reinventing themselves and redefining their fields to lead into the Future. Lene does not sugarcoat reality and promotes THE WILL TO SUFFER – as it often craves so much more than we want to believe to accomplish what we pursue.

The future is unknowable and happening fast. Risk willingness is the basis for innovation. Lene has hands on experience with both. As Lene shares – we must adapt to the future as it happens and take action without the security of a solid foundation. Digital transformation and artificial intelligence are only two among the multiple Mega Shifts that are transforming business and life. Waves of technology and social media are reshaping our reality, our cultures, and societies – how we perceive ourselves. To benefit and thrive with the swift shifts – we must innovate ourselves as humans.

Humanity has never been as empowered and interconnected before in spite of inequality, at the same time our lives are impacted by instability – from alternating job prospects and multicultural unrest and terrorism, disillusionment with powerful icons and institutions. Today it seems a continuous challenge to navigate the present. The % of people with stress and the consumption of psychopharmaca might state a dehumanizing inclination which individuals, governments as well as corporations must reconsider to futurize human innovation and cut costs.

Lene Gammelgaard has spent her lifetime innovating change, exploding the Status Quo, circumventing seemingly unsurmountable obstacles and transforming history as the First Scandinavian woman to summit Mount Everest May 10 1996. Lene holds a degree in law, psychotherapy and journalism.

Lene is driven to implement her visionary thinking, and contribute as a social entrepreneur and Top Motivational Speaker sharing THE EVEREST WAY – experience based mental strategies to mobilize innovating action.

Lene reflects – takes action – adapts – persevere – until she has accomplished what she set out to do.

Giving up does not exist in Lene’s vocabulary.

Lene offers THE EVEREST WAY to all who want to pursue a desirable future too.

Lene is committed to improving the state of the world.
