Carla Harris and Brian Halligan to speak at the New Normal – Online Event

Nordic Business Forum and Oslo Business Forum will organize their second online event on 24 September focusing on the topic of the New Normal in Business.

Nordic Business Forum Helsinki 2020 was rescheduled for September 2021. So instead of getting together in person, on 24 September, we will get together with our community online. With this online event, we want to offer the unique opportunity of learning from top business experts and networking virtually with people around the world. The event offers world-class speakers, implementable ideas, interactive sessions, and easy virtual networking with your peers.

Our online event is built around the theme of the new normal in business. More specifically, we will discuss issues such as the lasting changes going out of this crisis, leaders’ needs in order to guide their business through and beyond this shift, and the ways leaders can focus on long-term results while dealing with a short-term crisis.

At the online event, we have a lineup of four insightful speakers:

  • Carla Harris, Vice Chairman, Managing Director, and Senior Client Advisor at Morgan Stanley
  • Brian Halligan, Co-founder and CEO of Hubspot
  • Randi Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media
  • Morten Hansen, Professor, Author and Management Theorist

“We got a lot of feedback from our first online event in May and have made several developments based on that. For instance, we have invested more in the production: we will have a TV-studio as the core of the event with several production team members ensuring the quality of the stream. Also, we will have shorter keynotes and a panel of CEOs to comment on the speeches and how the ideas are applicable to their businesses”, comments Andreas Kustås, Executive Producer of Nordic Business Forum.

“We also have a few new ideas to make the experience better and unique for the audience online. For example, the networking opportunities are even better now. All in all, we are dedicated to making this online event even better than our first one in May”, adds Aslak de Silva, the CEO of Nordic Business Forum.

More information on the event can be found on the event website.
