On Friday, this year’s selection of Norway’s top leadership talents under the age of 35 took place for the ninth consecutive year. The selection has been recognized as the most prestigious designation of leadership talents in Norway and annually lists up to 100 of the country’s most outstanding leadership talents.

The selection process involves an extensive process of nomination, interviews, and rigorous reference checks from subordinates, peers, and superiors, as well as top executives from the business world.
