08.30–09.00    Registration and Coffee

09.00–09.05    Welcome   

Professor Rikard Söderberg, Director Wingquist Laboratory

Robert Karjel

09.05–10.05    Inspirational Keynote: Making the Impossible P​ossi​​ble​ 

with Robert Karjel

Lt. Colonel Robert Karjel brings a highly unusual skill set to the podium—pirate hunter, Swedish Air Force helicopter pilot, and successful Nordic Noir novelist. Using his exceptional storytelling abilities in both Swedish and English, Robert Karjel inspires organizations to conquer new tasks, despite external and internal problems and individual self-doubt or even fear. He shows how the "impossible" can be broken down into manageable parts, to keep high-stakes projects on track and on time. 

In 2010, Lt. Col. Karjel commanded a helicopter squadron fighting pirates off the coast of Somalia. Skeptics said he would never succeed, given low morale after a series of deadly helicopter accidents. Karjel’s mission achieved a complete turnaround. His naval task force averted more than one hundred pirate attacks, while escorting critical UN deliveries of food and medicine to millions of Somalis. 

In 2014 and 2016, Karjel was named Speaker of the Year in Sweden.
