TXD Executive Salon – Meet Global Leaders on the CEE Stage
Global Leaders Engage with Budapest
What does a global leader do in Budapest?
We've launched the TXD Executive Salon series with Nani Beccalli -- a true global leader with 40 years of experience at GE.
The event was held on 25 January 2017 in ImpactHub, home of several startups and other innovative companies with a social agenda in downtown Budapest. The unique initiative invites 'Global Leaders on the CEE Stage' to deliver a succinct talk, followed by an open debate and networking. Our goal is to facilitate the discussion around the future of CEE, a special economic area, and assist in developing a winning formula for the region’s future economy together with its global and local partners.
We - all who live here - have certain responsibility for how the current tectonic global changes take shape, while we can only survive if we act and play a leading role in the European digitalisation.
We consider it a positive sign that the 6000-member Hungarian Economic Association partnered with us.
Join us and share the video with your friends to make CEE and #HungaryGoGlobal!
