On Thursday 1 December, Prince Daniel presented the Golden Gavel award at a lunch at the Grand Hôtel in Stockholm.
The Golden Gavel award for outstanding performance as a chairman is awarded to a chairman who is a good example of the way in which the role should be performed. There are two categories of the Golden Gavel award: one for stock exchange listed companies and one for private companies. The 2011 Golden Gavels were awarded to Willo's Lars Göran Johansson in the private companies category, and to Axis Communications' Lars-Erik Nilsson in the listed companies category.
