(Are you still) Welcome to the UK 2017

Welcome to the UK returns for a 10th year to Stockholm!
2016 has been an interesting year to say the least. Following the Brexit referendum in June, a new Prime Minister has moved into Downing Street and the much speculated Article 50 is supposed to be handed in at the end of March 2017. Despite this targeted date from the UK government, there are complications and businesses are faced with uncertainty not many know what to make of. Despite the unknown, many companies are still aiming for expansion to the UK and the experts for expansion are still ready to support any such step.

This is the event for any individual or company looking to learn more about potential expansion of business to the UK. The event offers advice and experience as well as invaluable networking opportunities. It is also an event recommended for companies who have experience of working with companies relocating to the UK or who has expanded to the UK themselves and who can share their experiences with companies looking to do the same.

Confirmed Speakers:
David Cairns, the British Ambassador to the UK
James Savage, Managing Editor and Co-Founder of the Local
Garvan Walshe, CEO of Brexit Analytica

Date: 21 February 2017
Time: 16.00-19.30
Venue: Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, Brunnsgatan 2, Stockholm

The BSCC in cooperation with Husqvarna cordially invite you to:
Organising digital business model innovation
14 March 2017

Mats Magnusson Professor, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Johan Simonsson Global Product Manager Power Cutters, Husqvarna PhD student, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Organizing digital business model innovation. In recent years concepts like Digitalization or Internet of Things have been used to describe a transformation that implies fundamental changes to companies’ ways of doing business. Digital technologies open up for new ways to meet or exceed customer expectations and at the same time render possible a range of new business models. This trend is also growing in more traditional product companies, like e.g. Husqvarna. To address this digital opportunity, different initiatives are ongoing in the Husqvarna group. One such a initiative is a collaboration with KTH Royal Institute of Technology. This collaboration intends to investigate possible new business models, but also to understand more of the disruptive challenges of this transformation. A key question is how to organize for digital business model innovation in established industrial firms?

Date: 14 March 2017
Time: 17.00-19.00
Venue: Advokatfirman Lindahl, Mäster Samuelsgatan 20, Stockholm

RSVP to Cecilia Stråberg
