Mercuri Urval Webinar on How to survive disruption

Learnings from a former NOKIA Executive

We would like to invite you to our next Mercuri Urval webinar ”How to survive disruption”

Today, more than ever before, technology and its impact on society are increasingly disruptive. Technology-driven change happens rapidly and it looks like we are just at the beginning of the exponential disruption curve. These changes and their impact is felt right away instead of over generations or centuries. In only a few short years, for example, wireless technology has unplugged the telephone and moved person-to-person communications from the home and office to anywhere at any time. 

In 2011, the American Entrepreneur and Investor Marc Andreessen famously wrote a prescient claim that “software is eating the world.” His prediction was that software companies would disrupt traditional industries and since then, we've seen a transformation in every industry around the world.    

In our webinar, our speaker Christian Fredrikson will share his vast experience of three decades working with Technology and Telco companies around the world. He will share his learnings from bad transformation projects and tell us what Apple did better than Nokia in regards to developing and selling mobile phones. 

The virtual event will take place on Thursday, March 16, 2023 at 08.00am (CET)

The event will be held in English via Microsoft teams and will last approximately 60 minutes.
You will receive the respective link to the webinar shortly before the event.

Please register here until Tuesday, March 14th, 2023.
