On Monday Anders Borg came to the do-be consulting Malmö office to speak before a small group of leaders. The topic of the day was the international development and trends and how the Swedish business and public sector stand up in this development of events. Anders Borg shared in an inspiring way his findings around increased digitisation, the geopolitical situation and what it takes for Sweden to measure up in the competition. Questions came from an engaged audience and in the end Anders concluded with a smile that he has “a pathological optimism with anguished black edges around the bright future”. This was a night to remember for a long time.
