The focus of the day:
More benefits, less risks through purposefully maintaining relationship with stakeholders.

Orange, Sunrise and Swisscom in the Telecommunication Services Industry
Carefully chosen representatives of business and academia will speak on the subject and its practical relevance to different stakeholder groups.
