Betraying the Nobel

The Nobel Peace Prize is the most prestigious and admired international prize of our time. However, the prize as we know it is corrupt at its core. In this 60-minute keynote, Unni pulls back the curtain and exposes how the Nobel committees has contributed to dysfunctional leadership and devaluing women and minority groups. She also reveals how we can right the ship and restore trust in the Nobel Peace Prize and in leadership globally.

Unni Turrettini is a writer, speaker, and facilitator on a mission to restore trust in leadership, prevent domestic terrorism, and cultivate a culture of peace. Her latest book Betraying the Nobel exposes the secrets and corruption behind the Nobel Peace Prize and why it matters in today’s world.
