Royal Danish Library's business forum prioritises knowledge and education for managers. We present new perspectives from a selection of the world's leading experts in their field - at the intersection of economics, politics, philosophy and management.

We create a forum for new knowledge and new perspectives with room to grow. Here you can find inspiration, reflect and give yourself the opportunity to think a little bigger than what is often possible on a daily basis. The programme addresses the state of the world as well as philosophical and educational questions in relation to leading and developing in a broad sense.

The business forum also provides unique access to other experiences at The Black Diamond, exhibitions, concerts and author presentations, which can create value for employees and networks.

Why do 99.5% of all mega projects fail? In the midst of a worldwide climate crisis, we are dependent on the success of the major changes. But research shows that 99.5% of all mega projects today go wrong either by not living up to their purpose or by poor planning. Bent Flyvbjerg, the world's leading expert in mega projects and author of the international bestseller "How Big Things Get Done", knows how to reverse the trend. Meet him in The Diamond and get the answer to how a mega project becomes a success.

Meet the Vice-President of the European Commission, Margrethe Vestager, for a conversation about our future with artificial intelligence.

Margrethe Vestager compares artificial intelligence to the industrial revolution and has called it an "extremely powerful technology". She predicts that the development of artificial intelligence will fundamentally change companies and the future labour market - if it has not already done so!

As senior deputy chairman of the EU Commission with responsibility for the digital area, Vestager is at the forefront of legislation to regulate the use of artificial intelligence.
