Aslak de Silva, Nordic Business Forumin toimitusjohtaja: “Tämä on meille valtava kunnia, ja myös hieno mahdollisuus ja tilaisuus asiakkaillemme sekä Suomelle ja Pohjoismaille.”

Hans-Peter Siefen, Nordic Business Forum hallituksen puheenjohtaja ja perustajajäsen: “Todella hienoa saada presidentti Obama tapahtumamme pääpuhujaksi. Tapahtuman agenda on jo ennestään upea ja tämä on sille hieno kruunu. Varmasti merkittävin puhujakiinnityksemme koskaan. Pari muutakin hyvin teemaspesifiä puhujaa on vielä tulossa. Uskon, että presidentti Obama inspiroi monia ja että hänen näkemisensä Pohjolassa liike-elämän seminaarissa on meille kaikille todennäköisesti "kerran elämässä" -tyyppinen kokemus.”

Ville Saarikalle, Nordic Business Forumin Head of Speaker Relations: “Presidentti Obama on aikamme suurimpia johtajia ja hänen elämäntarinansa on täysin ainutlaatuinen. On hyvin innoittavaa saada kuulla hänen näkemyksiään Nordic Business Forumissa syyskuussa.”

Nordic Business Forum tunnetaan Euroopan johtavana bisnes- ja johtajuusseminaarina. Helsingin päätapahtuman lisäksi Nordic Business Forum järjestää seminaareja myös Ruotsissa ja Norjassa.

Helsingin tapahtuma kokoaa 7,500 yrityspäättäjää yli 40 maasta. Yrityksen missiona on rakentaa tulevaisuuden johtajia, jotka muuttavat maailmaa.
