March 10, 2020 – The Swedish Chamber Urbanisation Forum

What does the future hold in store? The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Urbanisation Forum will be addressing the challenge of growing cities.

A collaboration between the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and the Embassy of Sweden.

 

The Urbanisation Forum is a new series of forums aimed at business people, politicians and other influential individuals who wish to share experiences, supply information on their respective areas and bring about high-value networking. The theme has a specific focus on the global challenge as a direct result of the physical growth of cities.

More than half of the world’s population is living in urban areas and cities are set to be the future global economic engines. As the urban areas are rapidly expanding, there are several crucial challenges that must be addressed, creating a huge demand for energy solutions and infrastructure that will connect the city and make it more inclusive and sustainable. With our first Urbanisation Forum, The Swedish Chamber of Commerce aims to discuss these issues and explore the challenges of today as well as the challenges of the future. With insights from Sweco, Vattenfall, Volvo Bus and other experts, we will explore how urbanisation challenges are to be solved by implementing the latest innovations and technologies.

There will be four keynote presentations and one-panel discussion, all of which will be led by the moderator: Rens Goudsmit, TK Advocaten en Notarissen.

 

The event will culminate in a networking session with drinks and canapés.

Breakfast Seminar – The World is Going Flat

Meet two pioneers who will share insights from their practical experience of self-managed companies.

What is needed to have self-managed teams work in reality? This seminar is for those interested in trying out new ways of working, whether you are a founder, a CEO or a project manager in an Agile organisation.

Andreas Flodström is co-founder of IT company Beetroot, which organises without managers based on a friendly, trust-based culture. This is all the more remarkable given that they have more than 300 employees (and growing fast) and are based in Ukraine, where leadership is traditionally extremely hierarchical.

You will also meet Karin Tenelius who has more than 20 years of experience with organisational self-management. She has been CEO and owner of several small businesses and transformed them into self-managing companies. Out of these experiences she founded Tuff Leadership Training, known for challenging the hierarchical dynamics in organisations. You can expect a very practical seminar with lots of fresh perspectives and insights.
