Peter Bodin, global CEO of Grant Thornton, held a presentation during which he talked about the crucial importance of incorporating diversity and gender equality, to be able to succeed in a global context.
A panel of current and future global leaders of this world then discussed the main topic of discussion, which was the future vision of leadership, with globalisation and diversity in mind. The key message that a few speakers wanted to give was that people have to be themselves in order to be happy with their jobs and lead people into the right direction.
The panelists were: Mathias Wikström (founder of Doconomy), Håkon Vist (CEO of Veolia Nordic), Manon Escoula (product manager for OBH Nordica) and Niclas Karlsson (CEO of GSK Sweden). Two AFS exchange students were also invited to talk about their experiences about going international and what they have learned. The panel was moderated by Margareta Neld (Chair of AFS).
