ANNUAL REPORT 2015

LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD After the most successful execution of Aarhus Symposium ever seen, it is my pleasure to present the final words of Aarhus Symposium 2015. Once again Aarhus Symposium has attracted the most ambitious and dedicated students who have worked hard to ensure a significant advancement of the organisation and the concept as a whole. Past goals have been met and exceeded and new standards have been set for years to come. I am proud to say that I am surprised by how much this year’s organising committee has accomplished in just one year. Aarhus Symposium managed to attract the world’s best CEO Lars Rebien Sørensen from Novo Nordisk and a number of other distinguished leaders as speakers. In fact, the organising committee signed the most international speaker line-up Aarhus Symposium has ever seen. This gave rise to inspiring talks and debates throughout the day for the benefit of our participants. The organisers also completely redesigned and rethought the website to make it more engaging and informing for our stakeholders. Here, they have shared the theme video and the page “Exploring Leadership and Technology”, where the reader can dive into the megatrends observed during the day, and learn more about the theme of the year. Another area of interest has been to increase national awareness of and participation in Aarhus Symposium, which resulted in the creation of the new University Alliances group. This group has successfully established partnerships with other student associations across the country, and the impact was clear when looking at the significant rise in the share of Challenge essays submitted from non-AU students. The interest helped increase the number of submitted essays to almost 400. With the realisation of Aarhus Symposium 2015 it is hard to pinpoint how the concept can be improved as the organisers of this year’s symposium have shown true dedication and resourcefulness. However, as the organising committee of Aarhus Symposium 2016 take shape we will see new ideas on how to challenge the conventions and we at the board are confident that Aarhus Symposium will reach new heights yet again in 2016. On behalf of the Executive Board of Aarhus Symposium, Nina Smith, Chairman of the Board

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF AARHUS SYMPOSIUM REPORT ON THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS We have audited the financial statements of Aarhus Symposium for the financial year January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015, which comprise the accounting policies, income statement, balance sheet, statement of changes in equity, and notes. The financial statements are prepared in accordance with Danish generally accepted accounting principles. MANAGEMENT’S RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Management is responsible for the preparation of financial statements that give a true and fair view in accordance with Danish generally accepted accounting principles and for such internal control as Management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. AUDITOR’S RESPONSIBILITY Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and additional requirements under Danish audit regulation. This requires that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatements of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation of financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but

not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by Management, as well as the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Our audit has not resulted in any qualification. OPINION In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the Organisation’s financial position at December 31, 2015 and of the results of its operations for the financial year January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015 in accordance with Danish generally accepted accounting principles. STATEMENT ON THE MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY Pursuant to Danish generally accepted accounting principles, we have read the management commentary. We have not performed any further procedures in addition to the audit of the financial statements. On this basis, it is our opinion that the information provided in the management commentary is consistent with the financial statements. Aarhus, March 11, 2016.

ANNUAL REPORT 2015

MANAGEMENT’S COMMENTARY INTRODUCTION The planning and execution of Aarhus Symposium 2015 have come to an end, and it is time to reflect on the changes and improvements that we have made throughout the year. The overall aim for the organising committee of 2015 has been to consolidate Aarhus Symposium in the minds of the students and the universities across the country as well as delivering a renewed focus on academics and professional inputs. ACHIEVEMENTS The organising committee secured the most international speaker line up ever seen at Aarhus Symposium, and we had the pleasure of welcoming the world’s best CEO Lars Rebien Sørensen from Novo Nordisk to speak and engage with the students. We saw an all-time high interest from students to secure a seat by participating in the Aarhus Symposium Challenge. A record 383 essays were submitted by students not only from Aarhus University but also from other Danish universities. We launched the article “Exploring Leadership and Technology” on our redesigned

website to elaborate on the megatrends that was discussed throughout the day. This is our first step towards our goal of contributing to society and the public debate. This year witnessed the best execution of Aarhus Symposium to date. The surroundings at Campus Fuglesangs Allé gave unique opportunities for the organisers as we utilised experiences from last year. We managed to arrange the breaks and the final dinner for the participants to exceed all standards and we received very satisfactory feedback from the speakers and the participants in general. This also extends to the Corporate Lounge that saw a huge improvement by delivering a more exclusive atmosphere to the corporate participants. INTERNAL PROCESSES It has been a great focus for us to improve the internal processes of the organisation to ensure increased efficiency and quality for the years to come. We have implemented changes with the primary goal to help future organising groups start the initial preparation of the coming symposia earlier.

VISION AND VALUES We aim at delivering the best platform for students to connect, interact, and challenge today’s leaders in business and society on challenges and solutions of tomorrow.

ANNUAL REPORT 2015

One concern has been that a significant share of the committee are organisers for the first time. This is a challenge for the organisation because much of the planning already should be well underway in December and January.

Therefore, the Steering Committee suggests that the profit for 2015 is transferred to equity. This will enhance the opportunity to launch new initiatives and to handle the potential issue of volatile funding in future years.

Of two initiatives, the first has been to choose the theme for 2016 early in collaboration with our Alumni Board. By this we can invite speakers even earlier and it makes the work of the Programme Group easier. The second initiative has been to create a new and simpler partnership structure. This gives more leeway to the Business Relations Group to tailor the partnerships to the specific companies. This is expected to increase our partners’ engagement in Aarhus Symposium and our participants. FINANCIAL Aarhus Symposium 2015 generated a profit of 36,965 DKK from revenue of 658,116 DKK. This is a small decline in profits compared to last year and in line with the wishes of our Board of Directors. The profit is suggested to further consolidate the organisation.

THIS YEAR’S ACTIVITIES Every year, the first Friday of November, key decision-makers and leaders of today are invited to share their experiences and engage in discussions with ambitious students. Aarhus Symposium is an event of extraordinary class with the objective to connect students, the leaders of tomorrow, with key decision-makers, the leaders of today. The theme for Aarhus Symposium 2015 was “Leadership and Technology”. Technology constantly changes the way the world functions, and it is an important tool in tackling the problems faced by the modern world. This year we invited 13 speakers from a great variety of areas to examine how smarter cities, consumer technology, clean technology, and digitisation can help solve these problems. Evidently, the theme had a broad scope and so we collected the key findings under the title “Exploring Leadership and Technology” on our website for future reference as well as an opportunity for those who were unable to attend our events.

ANNUAL REPORT 2015

EXPLORING LEADERSHIP AND TECHNOLOGY CREATING A SMARTER AND GREENER WORLD The formula for a smarter and greener world is still under experimentation. Yet, one ingredient was agreed upon; we need a consistent citizencentric view as the key driver of any initiative, when designing cities and nations of the future – making technology the servant, not the master. In this way, there is potential to create a digital and physical environment that naturally induces a more sustainable behaviour from the different “users”. Despite the global nature of climate and resource challenges, solutions should preferably have a local origin, before scaling it up. To become successful, they must address the exact pains and needs that citizens, businesses, and local governments in that specific area experience in order to create the right incentives that will lead to a smart and green behaviour. NEW MODELS FOR VALUE CREATION Throughout the value chain of almost every incumbent, technology can enable an increase in efficiency and cut costs. Digitising both frontend and backend operations are no longer an option, but as most businesses have

experienced by now; it is a prerequisite in building the “new factory”. New ideas for products, services, and businesses can be mobilised by technological communication platforms. Moreover, they experience a shorter time to market. In fact, consumers increasingly become co-developers in the new model for value creation together with businesses, setting the agenda in these digital relationships. By the means of technology, businesses can also enhance their relationships with customers and consumers that enable them to (get to) know their habits, needs, and networks in new ways, e.g. through data and analysis. In this way, incumbents as well as start-ups can build a solid foundation for digital value creation through simplicity, accessibility, and personalisation. Especially, the internet makes it easier and cheaper to test and collaborate on ideas, and for start-ups in particular this provides valuable feedback from others before investing it all. Moreover, phenomena like crowdsourcing and crowdfunding are consolidating themselves, creating new entry points into existing and new markets.

“The Aarhus Symposium is an extremely wellorganised and professional conference, meeting and even exceeding the standards of many global conferences I attend.” Christian Clausen Senior Advisor & Former President and CEO, Nordea Speaker at Aarhus Symposium 2015 12 | AARHUS SYMPOSIUM


ANNUAL REPORT 2015

LEADING DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION The times of being able to “predict” the future in five or even ten year plans and strategies for an organisation are over. No one knows what tomorrow brings; what will be the next big thing and the next big technology to invest in? And what will be the extent of its impact on consumers, citizens, businesses, and governments? As a leader, how should you approach such uncertainty? For a leader in a private organisation, one piece of advice is to keep focus on what the business is good at and invest in technology primarily to support and to develop exactly that; do not try to encapsulate it all, at least not at once. Accordingly, companies should choose the opportunities that they want to make use of with care. At the end of the day, what matters are not the changes in technology, it is the changes in and between the people of the organisation.

efficiency and lowering costs, while at the same time being able to improve services. However, this challenges the ways the public sector is currently organised – and calls for a break with traditional silos in government. Moreover, there is an ambivalent relationship between moving forward in the public sector, following the technological development, and sticking to the rules and regulations, following the book. Often, legislation is what increases the complexity of digitisation in the public sector. To have success with a digital transformation, a leader of any kind in any sector must recognise people and culture as the overruling factor. The challenge is not about engineering and building the technology. Rather, it is about getting the users of it to get on board; citizens, consumers, employees, etc. Clearly, traditional leadership skills become more important than ever, when going through such extensive changes.

For a leader in a public organisation, digitisation is indeed an essential tool for increasing 13 | AARHUS SYMPOSIUM

AARHUS SYMPOSIUM CHALLENGE The Aarhus Symposium Challenge is an annual essay competition for students eager to participate in Aarhus Symposium. Each year three leaders from business and society formulate a challenge related to the annual topic. All qualified contributions secure a seat at Aarhus Symposium in advance of the official sign-up, and the authors of the best challenge essays are invited to the Leaders’ Forum. The single best contribution is honoured on stage with the Aarhus Symposium Award. For this year’s Aarhus Symposium Challenge Christian Stadil, Connie Hedegaard, and Robert Uggla were challenged by the students, and the winning essay was written by Oskar Harmsen challenging Christian Stadil on the topic “Ensuring the Success of a Startup”. BATTLE OF THE ECONOMISTS Battle of the Economists is an event aimed to inspire and stimulate the participant’s minds on the theme of Aarhus Symposium from an economic perspective. The event takes place on Monday in the week of Aarhus Symposium, and offers students the opportunity to engage in an economic discussion between leading economists. This year’s theme of Battle of the Economists was “Go green, now?”. In the last few years, Denmark has set out to become one of the greenest countries in the world. Successive Danish governments have focused on supporting sustainable technologies through green policies, causing a Danish green technology hub to emerge. Today, Denmark is considered to be in a leading position in terms of offering sustainable solutions. This year we invited Ditlev Engel, Thomas Dalsgaard, and Michael Svarer to give their take on whether Denmark should go green now through presentations and the following debate.
