Europe@LinKS fosters a foundation for building a strong and competitive alliance for global success. Europe is the starting point for Our future.
LinKS serves the purpose of constructing the necessary alliances by uniting people and co-creating strategies with an impactful edge.
In 2023 LinKS moved focus to Europe and beyond to find the anchors of European alliances on a global measurement of ambition. Politics, science, business, and societies as a whole is the collaboration model. To impact mindsets and generate results.
Brussels will serve as a new starting point in our LinKS missions. For the last three years LinKS has been a trusted partner and facilitator at European Business Summit’s (EBS) annual flagship event hosting +2,000 participants and high-level speakers.

Together with the EU commission, corporations, and organizations, LinKS mobilizes and leads mandates and delegations in Brussels and Copenhagen to share insights between businesses and regulators on how to progress our societies in a manner of good behaviour.
With The Power of Visionary Leadership
– have we educated our country’s decision-makers.
Through 25 years, we have built a knowledge base with the world-leading business schools and our community. At present, we are partnering with Professor George Day of The Wharton School to mobilize vigilant leadership in cities.
LinKS has been the proud first mover to point out the the necessity of educating political and public leadership alongside the private sector at esteemed global business schools, such as The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and INSEAD.
Today, LinKS partners with Professor George Day of The Wharton School.
Professor Day is best known for the ‘outside-in’ strategy with Paul Schoemaker, who introduced Vigilance Leadership in Harvard Business Review (2008) and MIT Press (2019) as competitive characteristics of successful leadership in organisations.
The reasoning behind LinKS came from our insights from all sectors and the potential quantum leaps that we all could gain from cross sector magnitude. This has been acknowledged as a groundbreaking initiative of development on a national level.
LinKS works in trusted circles and open innovation in conjunction. Numerous cases have been solved by combining the powers of the network and the creation process of new ways to go forward have been decided.
In synergy, LinKS spark solutions, shaping transformative paths ahead.
In alliances, we push forward complex strategic agendas standing up for:
