26 Oct Lars Løkke Rasmussen – Opening Speaker at Aarhus Symposium 2016

We are honoured to announce the Prime Minister of Denmark, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, as the opening speaker of Aarhus Symposium 2016. We cannot think of anyone more suitable to kick-start the dialogues and discussions within this year’s theme “The Art of Power”.

Lars Løkke Rasmussen’s first step as a political leader was as National Chairman for the Liberal Youth of Denmark. Since then, he has added several positions to his résumé; County Mayor, Minister for the Interior and Health, Minister of Finance, and finally, twice serving as Prime Minister of Denmark. Such a journey clearly proves that he has many years of experience when it comes to navigating in a world of power. Lars Løkke Rasmussen will share his perspectives on this year’s theme with the ambitious and dedicated students attending Aarhus Symposium 2016.

We look forward to welcoming the Prime Minister on November 4.

We wish them a great experience!
