Event description


TALKS by WLOUNGE: Next Gen Living & Working Environments

For the first time ever, TALKS by WLOUNGE come to Helsinki: a short-format event where influential and inspiring women take the stage for maximum 18 minutes (Ted-talk style) to tackle current business or societal issues while amplifying and supporting women’s contribution to the world.
