FuelBox Talkshop & Breakfast

How did missing having deep and meaningful conversations with the husband lead to a revolutionizing concept, which has already been implemented in thousands of homes, schools and businesses worldwide? How did this little, innovative box become such a powerful communication and development tool for so many employees, leaders and teams within some of the biggest organisations in Norway? And how did it result in the creative, Norwegian founder travelling all the way to Dubai to work proactively with UAE authorities and institutions to bring it all to the next level.  

Join NBC and Innovation Norway for a fun, engaging and interactive breakfast «TalkShop" with FuelBox-Founder and CEO Berta Lende Røed who will share her story and advice around how we can all proactively use curiosity and effective communication to build trust, increase commitment and significantly enhance performance within teams.

Location: Media Rotana Hotel, Tecom
