The cities I spoke in during October 2012 are as different as the clients that I had.

Nike Foundation, Keppel Group, Stoli, Pacific Basin, IKEA and Wikborg, Rein & Co.

In one month I got to learn about how Nike is supporting girls in Africa, how a off shore company is reshaping its training, what the future of premium vodka looks like, how the shipping industry is handling its crises, how a furniture company is trying to work differently with its suppliers and how a foreign law firm looks at the future of China.

The great thing with being a speaker is not only that you get to inspire people to be more creative, you also BECOME more creative and inspired by learning from so many different industries.

(Picture from a former school in Portland that had been rebuilt to a conference hotel and where NIKE had put their conference that I was speaking at.)

“Keep the date free for me and I will confirm next week if I can change 200 peoples agenda and booking!”
Quote from a client who moved (!) her conference, with 200 delegates, one day to be able to have Fredrik speak.
