Tech Talent

Explore how to attract, retain and manage tech talents

With the acceleration in digital, the demands on technology — for
speed, flexibility, reliability, security, and value — have radically
increased. For company leaders reviewing how to transform their
organizations, one tricky question is emerging: Where do I find the
people to do all the work? Companies have to hire the best, but that
won’t be enough. They’ll also need to rethink how they reskill and
upskill their people. People are the most important factor for a
company’s growth, especially in its early stages of development. How to
find the right people and how to get a better understanding on how to
create great teams?

Dr. Cara Antoine, Managing Director Digital Transformation at IG&H
Bernie van Leeuwen, Managing Director SKF Netherlands
Rik Zuidmeer, Partner and member of the International Leadership Team of Mercuri Urval
Jeffrey Kenens, Partner TK
Moderator: Rens Goudsmit, Head of TK Tech & Attorney at law

Featured image

With the Urbanisation Forum, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce is presenting a new series of annual forums aimed to bring together business people, politicians and other influential individuals who wish to share experiences, supply information on their respective areas and bring about high value networking. The theme has a specific focus on the global challenge as a direct result of the physical growth of cities

More than half of the world’s population is living in urban areas and cities are set to be the future global economic engines. As the urban areas are rapidly expanding, there are several crucial challenges that must be addressed, creating a huge demand for energy solutions and infrastructure that will connect the city and make it more inclusive and sustainable. With our first Urbanisation Forum The Swedish Chamber of Commerce aims to discuss these issues and explore the challenges of today as well as the challenges of the future. With insights from Sweco, Volvo Bus, IKEA, SPACE10 and other experts from The Swedish Delegation for Circular Economy, we will explore how urbanisation challenges are to be solved by implementing the latest innovations and technologies.
