Mike Walsh is back by popular demand. He is one of the most popular speakers to have spoken at Gulltaggen throughout the years, and we are very happy to announce that he is returning for our 15 years anniversary. As previous Gulltaggen participants mention, Walsh has been able to open their eyes to new patterns in consumer behavior and how this affects the growth of new business models. In April he will enlighten us on the topic Flex – Business Re-Imagined, and present some new research around what the company of the future will look like.
One of my favourite conferences, in one of my favourite countries, with some of my favourite people in the world – I can’t wait to return!, says Walsh.
