Kristin Skogen Lund, Director General of the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO)
Topic: CEOs About the Future
Timeslot: April 28th – 11:00
We have invited a number of Nordic CEOs from different companies and industries. They will answer the same question in their presentation. Our intention is to give you a view about how top management relates to the future, and we think that if you attend more than one of these presentations, you will be able to see how views are different. The future is uncertain, but we have invited some people who have the power to influence it.
