After a short welcome, Mr Felix Ehrat, former general counsel at Novartis, will give a key note speech followed by a short discussion and introduction into the program. We will then split into four teams for the interactive workshops tackling the various challenges of pitching from different angles and new perspectives. Each team will represent prepare a pitch responding to the request for proposal. Please take the time to read the request for proposal before you arrive in Horgen and please bring a laptop. 

We will finish the day with drinks and dinner at Seminarhotel Bocken.
