As the cyber threat towards Danish companies and society increases, the imbalance between the supply of and demand for cyber talents continues to grow. It is more crucial than ever that we support talent development and community building within cyber security – and that is exactly what Jens Myrup Pedersen has devoted his career to do.

Digitalization With Purpose – Driving Commercial Value For A Sustainable Future
Morten Holm Christiansen, CDO/CIO and Interim CFO, Haldor Topsoe – CIO of the Year 2021
As organizations digitalize their products, internal processes, and business models with increasing pace, it is easy to lose track of the goal and get lost in exhilarating new technologies and tools. To create true value and a solid ROI, all digitalization strategies need to have a clear purpose and a direction set for the (sustainable) future.

In this inspiring presentation, Morten Holm Christiansen will:
    • Share learnings from some of his many digital and IT transformation successes from leadership positions in global companies
    • Dive into how we can innovate, develop, and implement digital solutions to drive commercial value whilst pushing the green agenda
    • Elaborate on his CIO/CDO leadership approach and change management best practices

    • Digitalization and innovation challenges and how to prioritize initiatives in the current business climate
    • Change leadership and how to create sufficient organizational momentum

Finding Calm In Chaos – Mindful Leadership In The Modern World
Marie Kronquist, Professional Buddhist Teacher, Author and Mentor for Danish C-level Executives
Waking up at six, getting coffee on the go and grinding away for ten hours. Without breaks. This is how a normal day looks for many business leaders, and it wears on the body and the mind. But it also wears on the workplace; because is it really possible to create balance and focus among others while you yourself are in a turmoil? The unambiguous answer is no, if you ask Marie Kronquist, who has been teaching thousands of people in several countries and guiding some of Denmark’s top executives for years based on Buddhist principles.

In this thought-provoking keynote, Marie will share:
    • Her own journey from professional basketball player and police officer to life as a Buddhist in a modern age
    • Her learnings on how to live a courageous life based on wisdom, kindness, and compassion in a world with climate change, terror, epidemics, and economic crises
    • How to find calm in the chaos of leadership and how to become a better, more present, and resilient leader, using 2000-year-old tools
