Make or break
Digitalization, the fourth industrial revolution, Brexit and right wing political currents – it all changes the world. History can no longer predict the future and it has never been more demanding to be a leader, either in business or in politics. Leaders need courage to lead in a new world order. How can they cope in this volatile era of make or break moments?
A new world order requires new perspectives and new ideas. At this year's KPMG Executive Conference we give you the insights you need - and courage to lead.
We are proud to present three eminent key speakers with outstanding political and business knowledge, both from Norway and from international arenas:
