Leading the way to the future of money

A Pecha Kucha evening about the Future of Money from Leo @ Strossle on Vimeo.

Money is great—there’s no doubt about it. But what exactly is happening with the stuff these days? Where is it going, who has it, and how will we deal with it in the future? Strossle Norway recently hosted an evening dedicated to the topic of money, featuring PechaKucha-style presentations from a diverse panel of thinkers on the subject.

Pecha what’cha?

PechaKucha is a fast-growing presentation format that puts pressure on both the presenters and their audience. The concept is simple: each presenter gets 20 slides and only 20 seconds to present each one. Admittedly, on the night in question, the Strossle crew were a little lenient on the presenters in terms of this format.Despite this, nine entirely different subjects were covered, and our 90 guests enjoyed good food, good wine, and some great speakers.

Here’s what the presenters of the night focused on:

«The Future Of Media Companies» Alf Lande – LAC / New Media Network

Focusing on the future sustainability of media companies, Alf—a senior advisor to several Scandinavian media companies and startups—focused on the diversified portfolio required for the future-proof media business model.

«A New Business Model For Investigative Journalism» Tale Gjøvik – Filter Media

A brand new media company with a brand new approach to the industry. Filter has reintroduced the category of investigative journalism, financed 100% by native advertising and distributed on Facebook.

«Creativity As A Profit Center» John Jacobsen – Supertanker

What is the role of creativity in tomorrow’s business structure?85% of companies believe that «more creativity» is vital for their survival. However,  almost no one likes change or (gulp) many take the erroneous view that creatives are notoriously disorganized, bad at numbers, and prone to mental illness, and have an overt fondness for change! So how can creativity and productivity be reconciled in the business world?

«Bitcoin And Cryptocurrencies» Jon Ramvi – Blockchangers

Cryptocurrencies are increasingly hyped, traded, valued and yet completely misunderstood and incomprehensible. What is the role of digital currencies in the future of money as we know it, and how does it all even work?!

«Kill The Poor (not really)» Pål Nisja Wilhelmsen – Nettavisen

The truth, and nothing but the truth, about the lies and misconceptions of how monetary value is created and distributed. Invigoratingly accompanied by a diversified soundtrack!

«Influencers And The Value Of The Personal Brand» Julie Holst Berntsen – United Influencers

Why did Scandinavia’s fastest-growing influencer platform purchase one of Europe’s most prestigious PRINT publications  «Elle» in Norway? Because «Elle» is not a magazine; she is a powerful influencer with a tremendous reach and an impact powerful enough to change lives. And in the end, it’s all about the people!

«When Your National Currency Goes To The Ground While  You Are Abroad. A True Story» Kristjan Mar Hauksson – SMFB Engine

Money is just a number until you attach human values like trust, faith, and interaction to it. A true story about what happened when the Icelandic Krone was worth nothing from one day to the next, as experienced by an Icelander in the UK on the day question.

«The Changing Face Of The Cities We Live In» Linnea Svensson – Oslo Urban Arena

Property value is about more than real estate prices; it’s about the changing face of a fast-growing metropolis and a city that people love and hate, a city people live and die in. A look at Oslo beyond the big figures, and a new perspective on its environment and community.

«Money, Technology, and Machines: How Unfair and Wrong It Can Be» Torgeir Waterhouse – IKT Norway

When we create a faster, more efficient, technologically driven system for transactions and banking, we are also creating a variety of unforeseen challenges and future problems. What happens, for instance, to the way our children learn to handle monetary values when we remove their ability to deal with it?
