Mette Johansson is a highly awarded author, keynote speaker and entrepreneur. She speaks on Authentic Inspirational and Inclusive Leadership

As a highly purpose-driven and authentic leader herself, Mette speaks internationally on how to become a purpose-driven and authentic leader: the leader who we follow not because of their position, wealth or title – but because we are inspired to follow them. She has delivered her signature KeyNote talk “Authentic Leadership – Unmask The Leader Within” at conferences, corporations and business schools alike.
As the founder and relentless driver of KeyNote – Women Speakers’ directory, she is on a mission to bring diversity to speaking stages around the world.

She is one of six co-founders of the global social enterprise the Inclusive Leaders Institute, which focuses on making organisations equitable, and ensure that all employees feel like they belong.
