Nicolas Petrovic, CEO Siemens France & Belgium – Lessons from 2020
Monday 7 December, 12:30 – 13:45

 

This has been a year to remember, or to forget, depending on your perspective. One thing is for sure, 2020 has changed everything, from how business is conducted to how and what we prioritise.

 

Join us in conversation with Nicolas Petrovic, as he reflects on his experience as a global leader during the most challenging year of our lifetime.

 

Nicolas has the unique perspective of being a cross-Channel CEO, first as Eurostar CEO in the UK, before and after the Brexit referendum, and now from Paris, running a Euro 2bn operation. Nicolas will also share his views for 2021 and the hottest skills for the next decade.
