Taking place on the 9-10 of October in Oslo, our third annual Xynteo Exchange was a great success towards proving that we can reinvent growth by working together.
Over two days of active discussion, co-creation and problem solving, we encouraged new kinds of leadership, solutions and connections. Below are some favourite moments shared using this year's hashtag of #XE19 and #XynteoExchange - make sure to give us a follow for more!

Powerful words and performance from Norwegian Sámi musician Ella Marie Hætta Isaksen:
‘What is the other side not hearing? It’s very simple, they’re not hearing The Truth. It’s not comfortable enough for them to not hear the truth. That’s why we scream so loudly, because they’re not listening.’ Powerful words & performance by #EllaMarieHaetta #XE19 #XynteoExchange pic.twitter.com/eWrPpSJwlw— monika bielskyte (@monikabielskyte) October 9, 2019

I’ve only seen one episode of #GameOfThrones so no idea who these guys are but the audience at @Xynteo #Xe19 was delighted. They gave a startling talk on the degree of #foodwaste generated by human society - a huge challenge. pic.twitter.com/sqaYswLBH2— Stephen Hall (@saltwatersteve) October 10, 2019
