Jonas Kjellberg

How do you DISRUPT & Change the World of Work?

Joining us in London this March is tech investor extraordinaire Jonas Kjellberg, the co-creator of Skype - the company that changed the world of online communications forever and a technology industry that gave birth to the exponential technologies currently disrupting entire job functions and industries.

Jonas didn’t just change the telecommunications industry. He was an early investor into the very successful and disruptive Zalando, even though London bankers & analysts cried foul, and then he sold iCloud to Apple. Amongst many accolades and perhaps most poignantly, Jonas is someone who gets great solace in helping to “f**k up things” for the big lumbering (and sometimes-complacent) corporate giants of the world.

Hear from Jonas on 20 March on how we changed the world of work as we know it.

Venue

The ExCeL London, will host UNLEASH in March 2018. The ExCeL is London and the UK's leading venue for exhibitions and conferences. With two on-site metro stations, parking for 3,700 cars and London City Airport just five minutes away, getting to ExCeL London couldn't be easier.
