The former President of the United States comes to Oslo today to speak to Norwegian businesses.
One of the main topics for the conference is the future of technology advancement, with a particular focus on creating sustainable businesses in a digital era.
– He (Obama) complements the program in a brilliant way, given the fact that he led the United States during a period when the world underwent a digital transformation. Companies have seen tremendous growth and we have seen how the sharing economy has taken the world by storm,” says founder and CEO of Oslo Business Forum, Christoffer Omberg.
President Obama will join a list of international speakers such as MIT professor Andrew McAfee, CNN Program Director Richard Quest and Oxford lecturer Dr. Chris Kutarna. In addition to the international speakers, Norwegian business representatives will be speaking. NHH researchers Sveinung Jørgensen and Lars Jacob Tynes Pederesen, tech-expert Silvija Seres and Nordea’s Thina Saltvedt are on the list of confirmed speakers.
This is the second time Obama visits Norway. First time in 2009, he came to Oslo to receive Nobel Peace Prize.
