Alumni Knowledge Session: Of Century Champions and Unicorns


Making a profit is no longer sufficient. Your shareholders want you to beat expectations today and have an eye on the future. Your customers ask for solutions, not products. Your employees wonder how they can outmaneuver big players and agile start-ups at the same time.
The list continues but the principle is clear: your company is pulled in different, sometimes opposing directions.
Learning from two extremes of success – large companies that excelled for more than 100 years and entrepreneurial entities worth at least $1 billion – will help you to excel in this environment. 
Join us for our knowledge session to learn more about the principles of success in both the long-term and short-term.
