The participants will be able to choose a business-task that they find challenging for their current businesses and then take part in a workshop to dive into the problem and find a solution.
Practical Cases
Building connections between professionals in the consulting business is one of the goals of the conference. The event will include time for networking, finding partners and experience exchange. The interaction will be extended through a mobile app that will let you read about other participants' experience, arrange appointments with experts and suggest questions to the speakers.
