Siri L. Mannes is director of SpeakLab. She started her career as a tv-reporter at TV2 Norway and soon became the channel´s prime time news anchor. In 2010, Siri left television to co-found SpeakLab, a training centre for presentation skills.
Siri has moderated over 150 conferences on topics ranging from security and rocket science to health and finance – and also hosted the opening of the OECD World Forum in Paris.
Over the years, Siri has met and interviewed stars like Bill Gates, Angelina Jolie, Vaclav Havel and Jens Stoltenberg, but finds it just as fascinating to meet ordinary people with a story to tell.
