5 December, 10:30-17:00
The Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, London 

Sweden and Britain celebrate centuries of friendship and trade, and our business and political spheres are tightly interlinked as a result of it. At the Swedish-British Summit we look at our joint future ahead, the challenges, and how we can learn from each other. “Outer Thinking” is about 21st century leadership, bringing together business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and academics from both Sweden and the United Kingdom, to address the greater trends facing us, from tech to climate change, the future workforce or global trade.
