Rutger Bregman Joins NBForum Helsinki 2022 Lineup

Rutger Bregman, the Dutch historian and author, will join our Nordic Business Forum Helsinki 2022 lineup. At the event, Rutger will dive into the topic of the ROI of an Optimistic View on People.

We are delighted to announce that Rutger Bregman is joining us in Helsinki in September 2022! The Dutch historian, philosopher, and author of the NYT bestsellers Humankind and Utopia for Realists will have three sessions at our event. During his main keynote, Rutger will dive into the topic of “The ROI of an Optimistic View on People”. Additionally, he will engage in a moderated VIP conversation and host a Q&A session with our First Class attendees.

Rutger is a highly sought-after speaker on themes such as economy, society, and philosophy. “We all need some optimism and positivity after these few tough years. This is why we wanted Rutger to step on stage. He will share why an optimistic view of people creates a foundation for success and will also explain how you can build a creative organization through the right mindset. I believe Rutger will help us all to find the optimism we need to go forward”, says Aslak de Silva, the CEO of Nordic Business Forum.
