ND Focus – Elia’s networking days for Executives / 4-5 May 2017 / Chania, Greece

MISSION, VISION AND EXECUTION
Moderated by Tuyen Ho, VP Corporate Development, Welocalize

We continue to face a changing business landscape, including consolidation, outside capital influx and technological demands. To adapt and grow, we need to both re-examine company business strategy to stay competitive, and also to reflect on how top leadership roles should evolve. To quote Marshall Goldsmith, a leading business thinker, “what got you here, won’t get you there.”

The full agenda with coffee breaks and lunch will be published soon.
