9.00 - 9.15
Welcome by Schilling and moderator
During the Scandinavian Executive Publishing Meeting we shall learn more about how to understand the future, people, technologies, and the methods and processes that must permeate your organisation – and how to constantly innovate. We shall also be inspired by the way that some companies – from publishing and other industries – have transformed themselves and adapted new business models and changed their way of thinking about their business 360 degrees – upside down, globally, in the cloud, and in exponential acceleration.

- Poul Schilling, CEO, Schilling A/S
- Nils Randrup, Managing Partner/CEO of Rockwave Group
