The yearly Swedish-British Summit: Outer Thinking, brings together business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and academics from both Sweden and the United Kingdom, to address the greater issues, trends and opportunities uniting and facing us. This year we will think big and exchange ideas around '21st-century leadership'.

In a world where brands and businesses, business models and processes are constantly challenged and disrupted at a rapid pace, what makes good and sustainable leadership? Discussing the key trends facing any business today – technology, environmental and social footprint and impact, as well as 'the new workplace' – we will be looking forward at what is expected to be number one tomorrow.

The event is a half-day conference starting at 11 am and finishing with a reception. The afternoon will include a mix of panels and keynotes, with speakers drawn from both Swedish and British corporates, entrepreneurs, academics and politicians.
