Nordic Business Forum is a high profile business conference held annually in Helsinki, Finland.

“A company is only as good as the people who make it. We wanted to provide our employees, or intrapreneurs, as we call ourselves, the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s most inspiring speakers to advance and foster the flow of new ideas among our talented people. We can only reach our targets if we constantly invest in our most valuable resource – people and their competence,” Juuso says.
Nicholas Oksanen, President of the Industry Business Group at Pöyry, sees multiple business opportunities related to the topics of this year’s conference.
“New ideas come from our talented people. We can speed up the innovations through good leadership and tools, such as Pöyry Innovation Platform, a digital space for idea sharing. Nordic Business Forum speaker topics support innovation, and help us further develop our services in the whole industry field’s value chain, from strategic advisory and smart site to artificial intelligence. Also, we received insights to support us in technology knowhow development in the bioeconomy field, for example lignin and MFC related applications. All this will create added value for our customers,” Nicholas explains.
