We always strive to invite professionals or senior executives, to serve as our keynote, who are able to contribute relevant, insightful ideas that are related to the conference theme and the general intent of our conferences, which is to provide uniquely valuable resources, within a participative atmosphere and an enriched environment that directly supports learning and sharing. Our keynotes are people who have made and continue to make a difference in their own organizations and who, themselves, never stop learning, growing or striving for improved results for their organizations, the marketplace or operating environment in which the organization works and the world or society to which all organizations ultimately contribute.

The 2019 Keynote Speaker will be announced soon! Stay tuned!

During that time and as a result of her leadership, Doberman has been named one of Sweden’s most innovative companies, as well as the best in its industry and the best place to work.

Lisa’s unorthodox methods for innovation and her unique perspective on both employee empowerment and customer experience, are at the core of the completely new ways of addressing change management that she has developed within companies.

Lisa is a distinguished innovator and entrepreneur, who has been appointed one of the female leaders of the future. She has received the Royal Patriotic Society’s Enterprise Medal, served as an industry adviser to the Swedish government, and is currently Chair of the Board for the Swedish Education Broadcasting Company – UR, in addition to her role as CEO of Doberman.
