Business Breakfast at Switzerland Global Enterprise, Zurich
On 02 April, quality partners and Henniger Winkelmann Consulting held a business breakfast at Switzerland Global Enterprise. The subject was the current economic situation and outlook as well as current trends in Russia and Ukraine.
The seminar has started with an introduction by Michael Kühn, Senior Consultant Russia, CIS & Baltics at Switzerland Global Enterprise, and Julie Bächtold, Senior Trade Officer at the Swiss Business Hub, Moscow, on cultural differences and business behaviour in Switzerland and Russia. After that, Andreas Bitzi, Managing Director at quality partners, held a speech on the Russian market and outlook, which was followed by a practice case by Dmitry Konovalov, Sales Director Eastern Europe at Bucher Municipal. He told the audience about the challenges – and success – of Bucher Municipal’s Russian business with local manufacturing.
Sven Henniger, Partner at Henniger Winkelmann Consulting, gave an update on the Ukrainian market. His speech was followed by a practice case on software development in Ukraine by Andreas Ganswindt, CEO at Evolvice Team.
The large turnout shows the great interest of Swiss enterprises in the Russian and Ukrainian market which offers opportunities to access new markets.
Thanks very much to Switzerland Global Enterprise and Michael Kühn, as well as to the Swiss Business Hub Moscow and Julie Bächtold for their precious support, as well as to the practice speakers Dmitry Konovalev from Bucher Municipal and Andreas Ganswindt from Evolvice Team.
