Professor R. Edward Freeman
University of Virginia Darden School of Business
Professor Freeman will headline a list of speakers, panelists, and discussants comprised of leading scholars and practitioners. Professor Freeman’s 1984 book “Strategic Management: A Stakeholder Approach” has proven to be a landmark moment in the development of stakeholder theory.  More recently in 2010, Professor Freeman and close colleagues published “Stakeholder Theory: The State of the Art” that examines the ever growing body of research associated with stakeholder theory and assesses its relevance for our understanding of modern business.  Professor Freeman has long touted the seminal contributions to stakeholder theory that have come from Scandinavia and he will discuss these important offerings and the interrelationships between stakeholder theory and sustainability.

Claus Meyer
Co-founder noma,
Founding father of New Nordic Cuisine Movement
Co-founder of noma, Claus Meyer, shares his dream of unfolding the potential of indigenous food cultures worldwide. When in 2004 Meyer co-authored the New Nordic Food Manifesto, he and noma were in pursuit of purity, simplicity and freshness based on seasonal foods that make the most of the local region’s climate, water and soil, but he had no firm idea what great an impact those ideas would eventually have.
