SEMINAR 1: A Spotify perspective on things

Diversity & Inclusion, Working from Home, Creativity, US President's playlists – well, with Spotify you can talk about just anything! Welcome to an event where we meet Katarina Berg & Michael Kim, both from Spotify, who will share their insights from one of the world's most innovative companies. Katarina and Michael are both HR professionals, but at Spotify, HR is part of the business so it will be relevant for anyone working and interested in BUSINESS.

Since Spotify is often doing things in a different way and not like everyone else, so why would we? This talk will be unique – on stage, we have the people asking the questions, by link from Sweden and Australia we will have the main speakers.

The one-hour talk will focus on 3 different areas:


Spotify dares to think differently. What is the story behind their progressive parental leave? How is diversity & inclusion part of the culture? What does it mean to operate with speed? How do we achieve work-life balance? And how does it impact people when you add business revenue streams?


We today face new challenges while doing business. How does Spotify build teams in this new world? Can you really CONNECT virtually and MOTIVATE remotely in an efficient way? What is the new normal? We will also talk about "The Band Reunion – the Spotify way to address culture and values in a sustainable way.


The questions will be asked by a panel from SwedCham's HR Community Group

The answers will be given by:

- Katarina Berg, CHRO, Strategy Operations, Global Workplace Services

- Michael Kim, Head of HR JAPAC

SEMINAR 2: Future leaders perspective on things

Greta Thunberg is an excellent example that the young generation is very much needed to open the eyes of all of us and to make us realize that the way things are run today is not only old-fashioned but also unsustainable. Every generation has its way of looking at things, and the world needs to start to listen to the leaders of tomorrow – TODAY!

Welcome to an exciting talk with 3 leaders of tomorrow where you will meet 3 ambitious and influencial16-year-old students from Sweden and Hong Kong (Filip Zachrisson, Kamakshi Bhavnani and Zoe Shu). They have promised to give us their honest opinions on today's situation. The discussion will focus on areas of Sustainability, Communication, and which demands young people have on future employers.

During the event, you will also see a film produced by one of the speakers; 16-year-old Filip Zachrisson, where he interviews 3 Swedish brands; H&M, Oatly, and Scania, about their work with sustainability.

The questions to be asked, based on Filip's film – do the panelists trust the leaders of today? Are the brands' solutions sustainable? And would they do the same? The discussion will be lead by SwedCham GM Christian Bergenstrahle.

Don't miss one of the most exciting talks of this year!
