The Nordic Business Forum Speaker Contest 2019

Nordic Business Forum is once again on the lookout for a game changer with the second edition of its annual Speaker Contest.

Our Speaker Contest (formerly the Speaker Sourcing Contest) is a relatively new event, with the first of its kind being held earlier this year. With qualifying rounds in Helsinki, Stockholm, and Oslo, we hope to discover ingenious talent, innovative concepts, and intriguing perspectives from professionals and first-timers alike.

Speakers who impress the judges and make it to the final round will compete to speak at Nordic Business Forum 2019 and a €30,000 speaking fee. We are looking for ideas that connect to the broad themes of innovation, marketing, and leadership.

The first Speaker Contest was held in spring 2018. Over 170 people applied to the contest, 24 people were selected to attend our live qualifying rounds, and 8 continued to finals, in which the one winner was selected by a jury of audience members and Nordic Business Forum representatives to join the speaker lineup at Nordic Business Forum 2018. James Hewitt was our winner and he was paid a 30,000 € speaking fee.

You can apply to take part in the contest or register to attend any of the qualifying rounds. For more information, visit www.nbforum.com/speaker-contest/.
