I thought about going to NBF this year, but I didn't. Maybe next year, just because one of the speakers has sexy hands Very Happy

When i saw this I wondered what he'd be talking about. The more I thought about it, the more I realized he really does have a lot to contribute. It could be the business side of the movie industry or his Casamigos company. Or it could be Nespresso and how they're working with developing countries or how they're trying to be more environmentally responsible. Or he could talk about how to keep money out of the hands of terrorists. I hope there will be a chance to see what he has to say.

Clooney Cancels Due to Happy Family News
by: Nordic Business Forum
Due to the changing family obligation, George Clooney has now canceled his participation in Nordic Business Forum 2017 in Helsinki.
Many of you might have read the happy news that George and Amal Clooney are expecting twins. As a responsible father-to-be, Clooney has now decided to prioritize his family in this special time of their lives.
Although we are very sorry for the cancellation, we are extremely happy for Clooney and his family and wish them health and happiness. We appreciate Clooney’s decision to prioritize family, which is also a very Nordic thing to do. To congratulate the expectant parents, we are sending them two Finnish Baby Boxes, the product Finland has become world-famous for in making life easier for new parents.

Thanks Vilma for your post. That's great George is taking the time off for his new family. Would think he will start getting busy close to the Suburbicon opening so possibly he's trying to manage his time wisely. And it IS a lovely gesture by the group to send along such thoughtful gifts. They're adorable.
