May, June and July seem to have rapidly become ‘speech time’ as I’m giving talks at events almost every week over the next few months, but I’d like to highlight three of them. May 24th I’ll be at a destination marketing event in Jönköping called SmartaPlatser. Here I’ll be talking about the marketing of destinations and specifically the work I’ve done with Stockholm, Arlanda Airport and Sigtuna -my home community. Looks like being a great day and some very interesting fellow presenters. June 6th I’ve been asked to go over to Washington DC to take part in a live webinar broadcast for the journal Science. Science is the world’s leading scientific journal, read by over 750,000 scientists every week. The journal was founded by Thomas Edison, and is published by the AAAS – the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The topic is branding and digital / social media in the sciences, and it’s the very first time they have ever broadcast on such a subject. It’s a real honor to be asked to take part in such an event. July 3rd I’ve been asked to participate in an event in the town of Visby, at Almedalen, on the beautiful island of Gotland. My speech here will focus on my branding work for Stockholm ‘The Capital of Scandinavia’ and how we can further develop the benefits of this powerful positioning. Some references
