The five journalists, Poul Erik Skammelsen, Vibeke Daell Bjerrum, Niels Lunde, Jørgen Andersen, and Nina Z. Munch-Perrin, have many years of journalistic experience within the Danish and international business environment. With their journalistic background, we are certain they will pose the right questions for the speakers in their individual sessions.

As such, he has great academic knowledge of the issues ompanies face, making him an excellent moderator for Aarhus Symposium 2015.

Martin Brynskov has been the front-runner of several projects regarding the future development of cities and is an expert on the topic of Smarter Cities. With this area of expertise, we are confident that he will do a great job moderating the Smarter Cities track at Aarhus Symposium 2015.
