Business Attire

Small and medium-sized companies in a wide range of industries are the backbone of both the UK and Swiss economies. From a practitioner's perspective, what are the political and economic success factors which are perceived as crucial to enable SMEs to thrive on exports and outperform the global competition? How can they be reproduced in the future and which new factors will emerge?

Panel discussion, featuring CEOs and Founders of selected UK and Swiss SMEs with a proven track record of thriving in the global marketplace in their respective fields of activity, who will share their insights and visions. The moderated discussion will be followed by audience questions and a networking reception.
