The Winter Academy is an epic NxG event located in the Finnish Lapland. It is a long weekend filled with learning and challenging ourselves, but also a great opportunity to meet old and new friends over some winter activities

During the weekend we will hear some inspirational keynote speakers and real-life cases. We will also challenge ourselves at workshops and visit some local family businesses.
And let us not forget about the winter activities and after ski – that is after all what Winter Academy is known for!
Our keynote speaker is Jarno Laasala, known from the TV-show the Dudesons. Jarno will tell us how his idea of a stuntshow led him “From Finland to Hollywood”. Life has not always been easy and there have been several turning points in Jarno’s life where he has had to rethink his direction in life. Find out how he has found his own path!
We also hear tree cases from our NxGs: Thomas Zambra from Moomin Characters will speak about how values help steer a growing international business working at the intersection of culture and commerce, as well as his own journey to and within the company. Anna Herlin, The Tiina and Antti Herlin foundation, tells us how she has found her purpose in generating positive societal impact and ecologically sustainable future with the family foundation. Our third and final case is Krista Halttunen, Halton Group. Krista is passionate about sustainability and at the moment she lives in London finishing her PhD.
