Book Lene Rachel Andersen

Get to know Nordic Bildung and our thinking through a keynote by Lene Rachel Andersen.

We customize each presentation to suit your organization, your audience and your needs.

Eminently sharp, well presented and with a dash of satire. LRA grasps the very big narratives and elegantly links them to the current context for the presentation and our conference: educational guidance during a paradigm shift. LRA’s introductory keynote gave us a start, which lifted the entire conference right from the beginning.

When several students announce excitedly that they have plenty of notes from the presentation that they need to investigate further, I know that the presentation has been a success.

Our high expectations were met. Lene painted a picture of learning and bildung with a historical perspective grounded in the Nordic countries and drew a line into today’s society. Our job with teaching was well confirmed and we left the lecture with higher self confidence and a greater belief in what we do.

If you want to understand bildung, you need to understand something about everything. Which quickly becomes shallow. When Lene Rachel Andersen explains bildung, however, you see the full picture in a way that allows you to grasp the many facets of bildung, historically as well as regarding the future.

Lene Rachel Andersen is like a superhero who can transform complex topics into comprehensible narratives about us humans: upright culture monkeys who are currently faced with major technological and societal choices about what kind of future we want. Lene is a real systems thinker and a science comedian who juggles abstract concepts while making the dry and abstract entertaining and exciting. Her superpower is making people laugh and think while learning about things they never thought would be of interest to them. So if you ever need to understand something as complex as the importance of education, culture and technology in the age of climate change and want to be entertained at the same time, just book Lene.
