Jamie Anderson, Professor in Strategic Manager at Antwerp Business School and lecturer at London Business School, has been named as one of the world’s top 25 Management Thinkers by the Business Strategy Review journal, alongside internationally renowned thought leaders such as Gary Hamel, Philip Kotler and Henry Mintzberg.
He has held permanent and visiting positions at some of the world’s top business schools such as London Business School, IMD and the University of Melbourne. His research and teaching focuses on strategy, innovation and brand-building in the art and luxury goods industries, and he is just as likely to talk about Picasso, Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst as he is to discuss Hermes, Cartier or Patek Philippe.
He is an experienced and adept after dinner speaker and keynote speaker on business and management issues. Jamie’s case study of Lady Gaga was featured in the Financial Times, and he has developed a keynote presentation around the Gaga story which focuses on lessons from her success for business. Lady Gaga is a living example of the concept ‘leadership projection’ and has strategically innovated in the music industry by re-defining customers, re-defining music as an art form and leveraging new technologies to connect with her market.
Jamie relates all of these lessons to practicing managers. Jamie’s articles have appeared in publications such as California Management Review, MIT Sloan Management Review, the Financial Times and Wall Street Journal, and he has appeared as a business commentator on BBC World, CNBC and CNN.
