The Finnish Design and technological innovations have gained quite an attention lately, whereas The Netherlands has always been a forerunner in commercialization and value driven strategies. A combination of design, business know-how and technological innovations has proven to be a excellent mix to design new business strategies and innovate client driven services. Thus, there must be knowledge that we Dutch and Finns can share!
We at Finnish Dutch Trade Guild are celebrating our 25 –year anniversary, and therefore gathering some latest Finnish and Dutch know-how on innovation, service design and business strategy planning together.
Our “Creating Value” afternoon seminar takes place on Friday 5th October 2012, from 13.00 to 17:30 in Hotel Arena, Amsterdam. After the seminar we have cocktail and dinner, for those who wish to continue the day with networking Dutch and Scandinavian professionals.
