Thomas Erikson

Thomas Erikson is a Swedish behaviourist and the bestselling author of the Surrounded by-books, a series about human behaviour and communication. The series, including Surrounded by Idiots, has been translated to close to 60 languages and has sold over seven million copies.


His mission is to make people’s daily lives easier by making them aware of themselves, as well as helping them better understand what it takes to achieve the best possible ground for effective communication.


He is a highly sought-after public speaker and gives 120 keynotes per year on topics such as human behaviour, communication, self-awareness, manipulation, narcissism and leadership. From his home office, Erikson is a coach and mentor for high level executives and entrepreneurs all over Europe. He lives by the simple but useful quote: 'You can’t change somebody else, but you can change yourself.'


Erikson is a true anglophile. He is a passionate gardener and loves topiary. If he could wear tweed the full year he would and he is a collector of old Land Rovers.
