January 16 was not your average Monday. Together with about 1,000 founders, entrepreneurs and C-level executives from 19 countries we gathered in Stockholm Waterfront Congress Center for a very good reason – the first edition of Nordic Business Forum Sweden.

Themed “The Future of Leading People and Growth” Nordic Business Forum Sweden was built around practical leadership topics. #NBFSweden speakers included Chad Hurley, co-founder and former CEO of YouTube; Chip Conley, Global Head of Hospitality at Airbnb, Lecturer at Harward Law School and Bestselling author Sheila Heen; former World #1 in tennis Andre Agassi and more.

Some of the takeaways from the event below:

Hans-Peter Siefen, co-founder of Nordic Business Forum, announced that the second edition of NBF Sweden will be held on January 24, 2018. The second edition themed “Lead Lean” will bring on stage Eric Ries, Seth Godin, Anita Krohn Traaseth and Lena Apler.

The line-up for NBF main event in Helsinki in October 2017 includes Former Director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies James Hansen, actor George Clooney, and founder of Virgin Galactic Sir Richard Branson.
