Y's Men International Convention 2020


Lars Kolind

Lars Kolind, Chairman of World Scouting, the largest leadership training programme in the world. 

World Scouting trains 51 million young people in 170 countries, and until now more than 600 million adults have completed the scouting training. Lars Kolind will explain the “secret sauce/source”of World Scouting, why he and millions of other World leaders proudly refer to World Scouting as the key to their success, in business as well as in life as such. He will relate the purpose of Y’s Men to scouting and inspire us to do more, which will be no surprise when you know Kolind.

Tommy Krabbe

Tommy Krabbe is Denmark’s largest capacity when it comes to lectures about social capital, changes, enthusiasts, and well-being within organizations. As a lecturer he is full of power and points, and not hiding behind an endless series of PowerPoints.

He is a clear example himself of the energy and inspiration that features a fiery enthusiast, and it comes across to the audience. 

Under the headline “Bring Curiosity Back” Tommy Krabbe will give us courage and inspiration to meet tomorrows challenges within an organization close to its 100th anniversary.
