Speaker Contest 2020

FINAL ROUND: AUGUST 27 2020 - Oslo

Who will be our next speaker?

Nordic Business Forum hosts together with Oslo Business Forum an annual Speaker Contest in which we hope to discover ingenious talent, innovative concepts, and intriguing perspectives from professionals and first-timers alike.

The winner is offered a spot on stage both at Nordic Business Forum Helsinki 2020 and Oslo Business Forum 2020 with a 50,000 € fee for the speaking engagement.

We got over 300 applications to the contest and we have now selected the 40 people who will continue in the competition across five in-person qualifying rounds. The qualifying rounds will be live-streamed for free on our site, on Facebook, on LinkedIn, and for all our live stream pass holders. The top 2 from each qualifier will compete in the final in Oslo, which will be only available for people who have purchased our 'OBF Leadership Platform'
