I april i år kommer en väldigt speciell föreställning till Stockholm, när Stockholm Concert Orchestra sätter upp ”Pirates of the Carribean: Den svarta pärlans förbannelse” som en Disney Live in Concert på Waterfront Plaza. Du kan se en trailer här.
Disney Live in Concert innebär att en film visas på en bioduk samtidigt som en symfoniorkester spelar soundtracket live tillsammans med en fullstor professionell kör. Det ger en helt ny dimension av filmen och är verkligen en fantastisk upplevelse för hela familjen. Tidigare har filmer som Frozen och Fantasia visats som Disney Live Concert med stor framgång i andra länder, men detta är första gången vi i Sverige kan uppleva konceptet.

Would you like to have an entrepreneurship and innovation student at KTH Royal Institute of Technology working for you part-time? The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management master’s program at KTH is looking for companies to collaborate with on student thesis (degree) projects.
The program has enterprising students from around the world, and they can work with a company when doing their thesis in such a way that it is a “win-win” for the company and student: The company gets help on important projects, and the students advance their learning through research, while developing their networks.
This degree project involves a 15-point thesis (half the length and credits of a traditional two-year master’s thesis program). As such, The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management Program (TEILM) is a one-year master's program.
Timing: The program begins in March and ends in June. In the past, students have completed successful thesis projects with companies including Ericsson, Telia, Microsoft, and other large enterprises, as well as startups.

In May 2018, the new EU regulation on general data protection will enter into force. This regulation entails a complete reformation of all European data protection and opens for signi cant fees for those who do not adhere to it. Globally, we are also facing large challenges, such as the approval of Privacy Shield.
Speakers at this conference include Max Schrems, an Austrian privacy activist. Max Schrems has become known for his case in the CJEU, where he successfully challenged the rules on Safe Harbor, leading to large practical challenges for companies and authorities in connection with transfer of personal data to the US. Now, he is also challenging the rules on standard contractual clauses for transfer of personal data to countries outside the EU/EES. We will also hear from Peter Schaar, former German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, and lots of other thought leaders in the privacy sphere.
Data protection and matters of privacy
are often handled as separate matters, but constitute a core question in innovation and digitalization.Whatever your industry eld, digitalization continues to revolutionize and data protection today is crucial for every form of operational and organizational development, and to ensure a competitive edge and growth.
During the past years, data protection has been highly debated in the EU. In the Nordic region, this debate has been less visible.
Therefore, Forum för Dataskydd is launching the conference Nordic Privacy Arena to create a Nordic arena for data protection matters and wants to invite you to participate.
At this conference, we gather experts in the data protection eld, representatives from public authorities and leading international experts, to discuss the effect of the European data protection regulation on the operations of companies and public authorities.We are making Nordic data protection known!
Register by lling out and sending the form on our website www.dpforum.se no later than Tuesday October 18. Registration is binding, but a participant can send someone else in his/her stead

Effektiv kommunikation handlar om att få människor att agera. Skickliga kommunikatörer inom näringslivet, politiken och organisationer har en sak gemensamt. Deras ambition sträcker sig längre än att få människor att förstå vad de vill säga. De lyckas få oss att ändra vårt beteende.
Maktens Språk äger rum den 20 september i Stockholm och är en konferens där du får chansen att inspireras och lära av de bästa. Under konferensen 2015 hade vi bland annat Barack Obamas tidigare talskrivare Jon Favreau och Adam Price på scenen.
Under årets upplaga av Maktens Språk samlas inflytelserika kommunikatörer från både USA och Sverige. Vi kan lova en engagerande dag där du inte bara kommer att få lyssna utan också delta.
- Roger Fisk – Barack Obamas kampanjstrateg som 2008 och 2012 mobiliserade miljontals frivilliga för att få USA:s första svarta president vald.
- Jen Higgins – amerikansk HBTQ-aktivist som framgångsrikt kämpat för att vända den amerikanska opinion kring samkönat äktenskap.
- Alex Conant – kommunikationschefen till Marco Rubio – det republikanske hoppet som brast i möte med Trumps kampanjemaskineri
- Fanna Ndow Norrby – författare till boken Svart Kvinna, aktuell som pristagare till Stora Kommunikatörspriset i kategorin Årets unga talang.
- Lars-Johan Jarnheimer – marknads- och koncernchefen som tog Comviq och Tele2 från en liten utmanare till en dominerande spelare genom att förstå sina kunder. Idag styrelseordörande för IKEAs moderbolag Ingka Holding.
- Tomas Carlsson – vd och koncernchef på Sweco, konsultföretaget som planerar och utformar framtidens samhällen och städer. Han vet hur man skapar engagemang när ett företag växer och i tider av förändring.
Evenemanget sker i samarbete med Hill+Knowlton och Washingtonseminariet.
- The Trump Show, a Hit for Now, Faces a Test in the Fall – Om inte du tillhandahåller innehåll, kommer dina kritiker eller motståndare att göra det. Det har Donald Trump förstått, säger Alex Conant i artikeln "The Trump Show, a Hit for Now, Faces a Test in the Fall" publicerad på The New York Times webbplats. Alex Conant är en av talarna under "Maktens språk".
- Stories that affect change – En bra historia, oavsett om den berättas i ett samtal eller via media, kommer att bidra till att någon går från att bara hålla med, till att faktiskt agera. Det säger Jen Higgins, en av talarna under "Maktens språk".
- Kommunikationsbranschen måste börja spegla samhället – Det är hög tid för kommunikatörer att ta på sig de antirasistiska glasögonen och börja se kritiskt på sin organisation och dess kommunikation. Sveriges Kommunikatörer träffade Fanna Ndow Norrby, grundaren bakom SvartKvinna och aktuell med boken med samma namn.

The relentless development of new ideas, products, practices and services has transformed everyday life to a degree we scarcely could have imagined a decade ago. This transformation spans entirely new artifacts (such as scarily smart mobile phones), how we perform old tasks (such as checking into airplanes, paying tolls and taxes), and even the revival of defunct practices (such as pedaling around cities on rented bicycles).
Professor Amar Bhidé credits multiplayer venturesomeness for this dynamism: Innovation has become highly democratized and decentralized. And we take for granted that things will continue getting better, faster, and cheaper.
However, medical innovation may be lagging. Some advances have been dramatic, for instance with regards to HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C and minimally invasive surgery. But overall advances in health care have not had the same transformative impact on the common person’s life as, for example, information technology.
In his lecture, Professor Bhidé will contrast his earlier work on the venturesome economy with findings from his ongoing research on groundbreaking medical innovation. This contrast provides lessons on how to make life science and health care more innovative and venturesome.
... is the Thomas Schmidheiny Professor of International Business at the Fletcher School, Tufts University. He has had previous positions at Columbia University and Harvard Business School. Professor Bhidé has been studying innovation and entrepreneurship for more than 25 years. He is a founding member of the Center for Capitalism and Society at Columbia University and edits the journal ”Capitalism and Society” together with nobel laurate Professor Edmund Phelps. Amar Bhidé is the author of ”A Call for Judgment: Sensible Finance for a Dynamic Economy” (Oxford University Press, 2010) and ”The Venturesome Economy: How Innovation Sustains Prosperity in a More Connected World” (Princeton University Press, 2008).
We had a great time at our reception at the Fotografiska back in January, and look forward to welcoming you again – this time in the beautiful Spegel Baren of Berns hotel.

We hope to see you on Thursday 9 June ahead of the much-anticipated summer break, and kindly request you RSVP by Friday 3 June.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with Natalia Aliabyeva.
