During this Vision Dinner, Wojtek will elaborate on his strategic vision for the European market and its business units. How do you align and standardise multiple processes in the product chain, without compromising on quality and brand value? And how do you optimise your chain both from the inside, but also from the outside? Wojtek will emphasise the importance of both top-down and bottom-up development in different business units, and the crucial element of the whole chain in an optimisation process. His expertise and vision ensure an inspiring key-note and in-depth discussion. We cordially invite you to join Wojtek and your peers to discuss best practices and lessons learned!
