What do the business & sports industries have in common? The answer might surprise you!

What can the world of business world learn from the world of sports? You’ve probably never considered this question, but business and sports leaders from around the world will join Ramón Calderón, former President of Real Madrid, to explore this connection at the first ever Business and Football conference in Iceland on May 11.

Iceland has recently captured the world’s attention through its incredible achievements in team sports; despite it’s small size, Iceland’s national sports teams have qualified for several major tournaments and performed far beyond the demographic level typical of a nation of this size. The Business and Football conference aims to examine how Iceland manages to create unique and cohesive sports teams when the country has much fewer players to choose from compared to other countries. The conference also hopes to uncover what companies can learn from Iceland’s sports experiences in order to implement better team spirit and cooperation between their divisions and employees.

This highly informative conference draws on lessons from sports experiences to help business professionals develop winning leadership, strategy teamwork, and collaboration skills. Through in-depth panel discussions and engaging Q&A sessions, attendees will learn how sport and business leaders develop talent and motivate their teams and how the characteristics of successful sports teams can be applied to the business world. The conference will feature over 20 speakers, including 10 internationally renowned sports personalities, that will lend their expertise and insight to these fascinating discussions.

This exciting new conference will take place on May 11 at Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland. Only 800 seats are available, so be sure to reserve a seat as soon as possible!
