Maddy Savage

Maddy is an award-winning BBC contributor and podcaster who focuses on covering personal stories and trends from the Scandinavian startup scene and was listed as among the 100 most impactful and influential people in Nordic Tech in November 2017.

Previously a BBC staff presenter and reporter in London, she relocated to Stockholm in 2014 after falling in love with Scandinavia during a number of reporting assignments.

Maddy produces and hosts The Stockholmer podcast, which showcases top influencers in the Swedish capital, from iZettle founder Jacob de Geer to Natural Cycles CTO Elina Berglund, alongside emerging talent from a diverse range of backgrounds. Launched in 2016, the programme has completed three seasons and has listeners in more than 40 countries.

Alongside her podcast, Maddy reports on Nordic tech in a freelance capacity for global media including BBC, Monocle and Business Insider. Her growing interest in the Nordic startup scene has led her to moderate discussions at numerous tech events in 2017 including Stockholm's Women in Tech, Startup Day and the Nordic Female Investor Meeting in Malmö.

The Future of Work II

For #CRESUM18 we have decided to continue in the direction we took last year and look deeper into the questions concerning the part of our lives where we spend most of our time awake, our work.

We will ask questions and hopefully provide answers.

Why is it that as little as one out of ten people are actually engaged in their job? Is it leadership or the workplace that create this or something else?

How does the ever increasing role of AI and robots impact us as humans? What are the creative opportunities, what new skills do we need and will there even be jobs for all of us?

To find answers to these questions and more, we have invited a number of speakers with expertise in these areas to share their stories.

Welcome to #CRESUM18.



We are extremely proud of our partners and the network that has been built since the first Creative Summit event took place in 2007.
