CHANGE20 on 4 November will be virtual and reaching a larger number of business and change leaders

CHANGE20 is the top change event of the year with Annica Bresky, Stora Enso CEO as a key note speaker. Due to Covid-19, this year’s event will be a virtual one, which means that the number of seats is not limited. This offers a chance to our guests to invite everyone, who should understand the essentials of people-driven change to thrive in the era of constant change, to attend the event. CHANGE20 is for everyone in a role of a change sponsor, owner or leader, or change maker.

Annica Bresky will share her experience in leading major transformations, and open up the Stora Enso journey to a renewable materials growth company. The other speakers will open up, what is essential in leading and driving continuous change: Distributed culture and leadership will be the topic of Wärtsilä’s Chief Transformation Officer Domenico Dargenio, and Leadership Anthropologist Andreas Forsberg will talk about emotional space in change. CCEA CEO Reetta Rajala will share her insights on successful transformation through people-driven change.

On Wednesday November 4th, our top-notch speakers will be on stage in the afternoon at 15:00–18:00. Together with our event partner, we will be glad to offer you a great live stream experience with inspiration, food for thought and practical take-aways. The event will be moderated by Christina Dahlblom. Christina has navigated change in her roles as manager, CEO, consultant and board member for the last 20 years. How humans behave, and how behaviour can be influenced, has been at the core of her interests since her Ph.D. on customer loyalty in 2004. She is wildly curious about the longer term impact of the rapid changes our society, our organizations and we as individuals are going through at the moment.
