The first Speaker Sourcing Contest qualifying round in Helsinki is set to open its doors on May 16th at 16h EEST.
We were simply amazed by the flood of applications that came in for our first ever Speaker Sourcing Contest. At the end of the day on Monday 30 April, the contest closed with a staggering 171 applicants. This was impressive both in terms of quantity and quality – the level of each application surpassed our expectations. We have spent the past week parsing through the contenders and have selected 8 candidates to move forward to the Helsinki qualifying round.
The Helsinki qualifier candidates are:
- Katarina Segerståhl
- Jovin Hurry
- Petri Rajaniemi
- Camilla Tuominen
- Emmanuel Raj
- Antti Merilehto
- Timo Polari
- Tobias Dahlberg
The Stockholm and Oslo qualifier candidates will be announced soon.
