Switzerland’s digital competitiveness: Between fax machine and quantum computer

A toxic culture through digitization?

Language: German

High turnover, low morale, lots of gossip: typical symptoms of a toxic corporate culture. Profound changes in the corporate culture and the understanding of leadership are necessary. In this breakout session you will learn which measures (remote or in person) you as a leader can use to establish and sustain trust and genuine collaboration in the company culture.

From product to successful business model

Language: English

The reliability of industrial plants is increasing thanks to the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. But the real customer benefits are delivered by innovative business models and a holistic approach to service contracts. In the breakout session, we will use concrete examples to show how the traditional model, where payment is made for materials and working time, can be transformed into a flexible, results-oriented concept with clear added value.

NFT – more than just hype? How the art market is adapting blockchain technology

Language: German

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique, "non-replaceable" cryptographic token that, in comparison to a fungible token such as Bitcoin, is not exchangeable and therefore not replicable. NFTs are digital real tokens that are mapped on the blockchain or the Ethereum network and are increasingly used in the art scene, among others. Our expert, Dr Daniel Diemers, will give you an overview of the size of the market and its development. We will also be joined live by the world-famous Twobadour, who owns the most expensive NFT artwork in history.
