Then she will explain how to apply this “superpower” to love what you do. There will also be plenty of time for you to ask personal questions and share your own experiences.

The presentation and discussion will be in English.

On Wednesday, 7th of October 2020, this year’s speakers, from background as diverse as science, business and sport, provide impulses on the topic of motivation. They share personal and professional insights, give advice and discuss questions such as: Why are people motivated differently? Can I learn to be motivated? How do I motivate a team?

The event concludes with a reception to network and exchange ideas.
