13.03.2017 | Investor: Who, What, When? 

Business Foundations 

Alexandre Peyraud 

Talk Language: French 

Investor relations are extremely relevant. Attracting their interest, deciding the best time to establish a relationship with them and how to do so are vital issues. 

To contact an investor, yes, but when, for how much and what does it involves is the subject of this talk. 


22.05.2017 | From lean startup to machine industry 

Innovation & Thinking

Cédric Queloz

Talk Language: French 

Is the Swiss industry on the verge of disappearing or on the contrary at a turning point that will make the survivors stronger?

Is the strength of the Swiss franc a fatality or an opportunity? Are structural and wage costs in Switzerland impossible to overcome or balanced by the competitiveness / productivity of enterprises? What are the levers that allow companies to reinvent themselves, do we have to make a race for innovation, one to cut costs, or both? Is LEAN a social danger or the road to operational excellence?

Is industry 4.0 (IoT, big data, dematerialization / digitization) really a revolution or a simple technological evolution which risks / opportunities can be derived from it? How can it help to address the above issues? Is it a charge, a risk, an investment or a complement to the LEAN?

This interactive talk will aim to share the visions of each one, to clarify some elements with a specific experience and strategy (Rollomatic) and finally to try to find answers or at least to debate the stakes of the Swiss industry in general and the machine tool one in particular, and the means available to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
