2016´s been an interesting, intensive year. I´ve lead the 2 largest infrastructure seminars in Sweden, both VTI Transport Forum in Linköping as well as Maskinentreprenörernas “Stora Infradagen”. Other seminars have been Swermas Risk Forum, Tamrodagen, TeknikföreDagen, Mälartinget, Coop and LRF along with a number of sessions at the political week in Almedalen, including NCC yearly debate about the housing situation in Sweden.

It was a special pleasure to be the main moderator for the huge ECIIA conference in October, 2 days of interesting seminars about governance, risk and control. Among the main speakers were former prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt who spoke about the future of EU and TRACE International´s Alexandra Wrage who gave us a tour around the corrupt ways of FIFA.
