Announcing the 2023 Speaker Contest – Applications Are Now Open

Business Forum Group proudly presents the fourth annual Speaker Contest.

We are excited to announce that Business Forum Group is now welcoming applications for the 2023 Speaker Contest. The purpose of the contest is to find an undiscovered talent to give an inspiring speech on one of this year’s themes: innovation, leadership, or sustainability.

Out of the applicants, we will choose 24 semifinalists to perform their speech in front of a jury during the semifinal rounds held online in March. The final will be held as a hybrid event in Helsinki on the 10th of May. So, it doesn’t matter where you are, you can take part from anywhere in the world!

The contest winner will get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to get up on stage in front of thousands of business leaders. They will give their winning speech in September 2023 at Nordic Business Forum, Oslo Business Forum, and Amsterdam Business Forum, as well as receive a speaker fee of 50,000 euros.

“We are hoping to see applications from different backgrounds and from all over the world. The past speaker contests have been a great success and we have high expectations for our contestants again this year,” says Andreas Kustås, the Executive Producer of Nordic Business Forum and Oslo Business Forum.

Applications are open until the 22nd of January. You can find all the key information regarding the contest and the application process on our Speaker Contest website.
