Keynote with Spryker Co-CEO Alexander Graf

Innovate (NOW)

Companies are subject to a “natural” cycle and survive on average less than 10 years with the same or at least very similar business model. The only way to survive longer is to change consistently, constantly adapt your business to new conditions or better: anticipate them and remain innovative.  At the same time, the advancing digitalization makes it easier than ever before to implement innovations, reinvent oneself again and again and thus prevent “natural dying”. Or at least to delay it significantly. Amazon is repeatedly cited as the unpopular but most impressive example: The company manages like no other to establish and profitably develop new businesses alongside its own core business almost every week – and AWS is just one of many examples of innovations based on digital technologies.


Master the craft of Watchmaking

This workshop immerses you in the world of Swiss watchmaking through a course combining theory and practice. Guided by the Master watchmaker, dismantle a mechanical movement with manual or automatic winding in order to unlock its secrets, then reassemble it. The course will be divided into a theory and practical part:

  • Swiss watchmaking and its origins
  • Introduction on the functioning of a mechanical movement with manual or automatic winding
  • Composition of a mechanical watch and its external parts
  • Disassembly and assembly of a Swiss mechanical movement with manual winding (Unitas 6497) or automatic winding (ETA 2892)

Executive Dinner

The taste of Lausanne

Still in the hospitality of Hotel Beau-Rivage Palace, we will head into a 3-course dinner where you can share your watchmaking experience with the rest of the group while enjoying wonderful food and tasty drinks! Use the opportunity to network and share about challenges your company was/ is facing when it comes to digitising the business.
