We empower you to change the world.

What we do

We believe that inspiring and equipping business leaders who want to make the world a better place is the single most effective way in which we can make an effect on the whole society at large.

Since the beginning of 2016, we have been passionate about providing business leaders with actionable tools and ideas to grow as leaders. All our activities are committed to empowering leaders to change the world.

Our attendees benefit from educational lectures by some of the world’s foremost business experts and have the opportunity to network with a diverse, high-level international crowd.

We take pride in putting together an impressive speaker lineup and a top-notch customer experience to serve our bright-minded event attendees. At our events, you can focus on yourself and the inspiration, knowledge, and networks – we will take care of the rest and make sure it will be an experience to remember.

LONG STORY SHORT

Our story

Oslo Business Forum was started in January 2016, by the two co-founders Christoffer Omberg and Marius Røed Wang, two students from BI Norwegian Business School. The purpose was to challenge the status quo in the Norwegian business community. 

Ten months later, the first conference was organized in November 2016. Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester United through 26 years, was the first keynote speaker, in front of 850 guests at Oslo Concert Hall.

Since then, our annual business conference has grown to be one of the most significant business conferences in the world. In five short years, we have accomplished some major milestones we are proud of. Speakers such as President Barack Obama, Randi Zuckerberg, David Cameron and Gary Vaynerchuk have already guested our conference as keynote speakers.

In May 2019, we were partly acquired by Nordic Business Forum, one of the most noteworthy business conferences in the world. In 2021, we expect 750 business leaders to attend in-person and more than 10,000 online.

Company Mission

We believe that inspiring and equipping business leaders who want to make the world a better place is the single most effective way in which we can make an effect on the whole society at large.
