10:00 - 11:00: Executive salaries in Norway vs. access to international competence and diversity

Despite a lot of focus on top executive salaries, it turns out that Norway ranks low compared to other countries. What challenges could this pose for Norwegian businesses?

  • Are Norwegian conditions suitable for attracting executives from outside Norway?
  • Will Norwegian companies need more foreign executives in the future?
  • Will we see an increase in top executives moving abroad for better conditions?
  • Is this relevant for all industries?
  • Is there a difference between private and public sector?

We want to take an international perspective on executive pay and invite you to a seminar where we discuss current practices and what this could mean for future executive recruitment and diversity in Norwegian businesses.

11:00 – 12:00: Geopolitical instability has disrupted Norway’s supply chains. What’s the impact for businesses?

Recent geopolitical tensions and an increased focus on protectionism in world trade has critically effected global supply chains but what does this mean for local industry in the future?

We’ve put together a diverse panel of experts led by Carolina Klint, Chief Commercial Officer Europe, Marsh McLennan, and co-author of the World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report, where we seek to shed light on critical questions including:

  • Do we need to move the production of more goods and services to home soil and what will be the impact of this?
  • What measures can mitigate these risks and what will be the cost?
  • What changes will Norwegian workplaces have to manage as a consequence in the short and long-term?

See you in Arendal on August 15!
