About Speaker Soulaima Gourani…

There is a lot to be said about Soulaima Gourani and her many experiences. At the age of twenty-eight, Soulaima Gourani received recognition as one of Denmark’s brightest business women when she received the prestigious Rising Star award and the Talent 2004 award. Since then, she has gained valuable management experience from companies such as Hewlett-Packard and A.P. Moller-Maersk. Today, Soulaima Gourani exploits her vast knowledge and experience as an adviser and speaker for some of the world’s most innovative companies, when they seek inspiration and motivation. She is also author and contributing author to a number of books.

Soulaima is listed as one of the top 100 talents in Europe to keep an eye on by the well-esteemed French magazine Courrier International, and in March 2012 she was selected as one of the 192 management leaders in 2012-2017 by the World Economic Forum who are to carry out the task as innovators and futurists in one of the world’s most important leadership forums—Young Global Leaders. Soulaima is a Young Global Leader, and in the next five years, she will travel around the world to meet with politicians and business leaders.

In 2012 Soulaima Gourani was recognized as one of the 20 most business-minded people in the Nordic countries by Nordic Business Forum. In 2014 she was selected to be amongst 40 under 40 European Young Leaders by EuropaNova and Friends of Europe and in 2016 she was appointed to be amongst the ‘Inspiring fifty’ European list of inspiring role models as well as appointed to be UN Woman Ambassador Advisor.

Soulaima Gourani is much sought after as a speaker, where her role is to revitalize both Danish and international companies in areas such as strategy, management, and career development. Throughout her career, Soulaima has inspired and challenged an impressive number of the worlds’ largest and most innovative companies—a fact that her list of references can testify to. She is in high demand because of her ten years of management experience in multinational companies, her vast knowledge and innovative approach to sales, her management strategy, her career development, her ability to predict how markets will respond and change, and her almost-unlimited energy and authenticity. She was rewarded for these qualities when she received an award as a speaker of the year in 2010 in the category Trends and Tendencies. Soulaima was recently shortlisted  for the 2019 Thinkers50 Ideas into Practice Award, and was awarded the Thinkers50 Radar Award in 2020.
