Welcome to Sime!

The world keeps changing. Yesterday’s hype is today’s reality. Sime 2018 is about mastering the new normal while preparing for what’s next. Not by providing all the answers but by challenging chosen truths and posing the right questions.

The event is held at Epicenter, our own house of innovation in Stockholm, where ideas come alive.

We are honored that you are one of our speakers. We hope it will be as rewarding for you as for us.

Expected from you

Our goal is to make Sime into a platform for knowledge and dialogue as well as a catalyst for positive change for the audience and the organizations they represent.

We have defined some guiding principles that we hope will help us reach this goal, please read and respect:

  • Be a teacher (not a salesperson), share knowledge, experiences and good examples.
  • Be radiant – we want every panel and speaker to be stellar and memorable for the audience.
  • Don’t underestimate the audience – the audience consists of thought leaders, executives and aficionados.
  • Entertain – Scandinavians have great sense of humor.
  • Be brave, don’t hesitate to share mistakes, that’s what people learn from!
  • Challenge the other panelists, the audience and the moderator on the main stage and in workshops if you are participating – knowledge is born from different perspectives. We want to have debates and controversy rather than nodding heads.
  • Please be on time and where you should be.
  • Please keep your speaking slot as long as agreed, and if this doesn’t work, please don’t mention this on stage, just stay cool and skip the last slides while you round off.
  • The nightlife in Stockholm is great; please do not let that impact your performance.
  • Be sharing with your knowledge and exciting personality – the audience really loves the off stage interaction with and between speakers and this is a very important part of the Sime magic!
  • Spread the word! We’re happy if you post in your social channels. Use #sime2018, link to: https://sime.nu  
  • Have fun!
