EcoTalk is a joint event format of the Finnish Embassy, FINNCHAM Austria and Sylvi Kekkonen Foundation.
The topic of the second EcoTalk of the year 2018 was “Disruption or Transformation? – how strategic changes accelerate industrial digitalization”. The event was organised on November 13 2018 at the residence of the Finnish Ambassador.
The members of the roundtable discussion represented both Finnish and Austrian companies: Sabine Lutz (Regional Sales Manager Europe, Nokia), Manfred Heger (Innovation & Portfolio Manager, Wienerberger) and Christian Hofmann (Topic Owner Industrie, Manufacturing u. Forstwirtschaft, Tieto). All three leaders not only discussed new trends and technologies, but also presented concrete examples of new, innovative products and business opportunities. As the moderator of the roundtable discussion functioned honorary consul Ferdinand E. Auersperg. The topic raised plenty of interest among the audience, and the panel members got numerous questions and suggestions. The exceptional atmosphere of the evening was accentuated by the lively musical performances of the pianist Johannes Piirto.
The event was closed in the early evening by informal networking and wonderful discussions, enjoying delicious canapes and drinks.
