Join Speaker Contest Semifinals Online

The Business Forum Group Speaker Contest moves into its second phase: the semifinals! 30 contestants have been selected to share their original ideas across five semifinal rounds. The winner of each semifinal will continue their way to the final, and finally one of them will win the contest.

All the semifinals will be live-streamed for free on the following dates from 18:00 to 20:00 (Finnish time):

  • 10 March: Helsinki Semifinal
  • 17 March: Stockholm Semifinal
  • 24 March: Tallinn Semifinal
  • 31 March: Amsterdam Semifinal
  • 4 April: Oslo Semifinal

You can join to watch the free live stream on the Speaker Contest website. Also, you can connect with others on the semifinal LinkedIn events.

Why should you watch the semifinals?

Firstly, as a live viewer, you will have a say in who wins. By joining the live stream of the semifinals, you will be able to vote for your favorite. Along with our jury, the audience will decide which speakers will qualify for the final.

Additionally, the 30 semifinalists are all talented business speakers. By listening to them, you will discover new business ideas, concepts, and tools. Who knows, maybe your next big idea comes from one of the 30 semifinalists.

What’s at stake at this point?

After receiving 301 applications, we have selected the 30 people who continue to the semifinals. Only five of them will make it to the final that is held on the 31st of May in Helsinki.

The winner of the entire contest steps on stage at our events in Helsinki, Oslo, and Amsterdam next September and receives a speaking fee of 70,000€.

The theme of our 2022 events is Future-Focused Leadership, and the contestants will share their ideas on Future of Work, Culture, and Sustainability.

Join the Speaker Contest Semifinals to get new ideas on these topics—and of course to vote for your favorite!
