Speaker: Maria Paulsson (Grand Hotel Lund)
The company I currently run is a family business, so does that mean it was my destiny to take over from my father? Well it certainly wasn’t what I thought when I left Sweden at the age of 20. It took 14 years living abroad, and a detour incorporating 6 countries, before I knew that I should at least give it a go! So full of confidence and energy I embarked on my most recent journey, to take over a family business and run an icon hotel in Lund. My most pertinent question at the time - was Lund big enough? 12 years later, I have the answer.

The discoursers and author couple Ivarsson & Andersson were successful with their first novel Råttan (The Rat). It is a thriller based on true cases of benefit frauds in Sweden. With their experiences as former mangers of employment offices, officials and police officer they present a frightening story about how organized crime finds its way in to the hallways of authorities and steal millions from the tax-payers. Do not miss the opportunity to attend their lecture the seventh of May this year.

Speaker: Henrik Hedlund (Human Fidelity AB)
What does it really mean for ’something to be sustainable’? How come that we didn’t think about this concept thirty years ago? How do we relate a ’sustainability paradigm’ to the ’ruling paradigm of economic growth’? What are the ’UN global goals for sustainable development’? How can a sustainable world become real? This lecture will put the concept of sustainability into a context of the past, the present and the future and hope to both clarify, provoke and present ’the real stuff’.
