TWINKLE BrightShops, where international talents solve challenges facing companies – there's still time to join!
During TWINKLE, companies can present their challenges in BrightShops to be solved by international talents. Laura Lindeman, Talent Attraction Manager at Tredea and responsible for general management of TWINKLE, explains:
"In BrightShops, innovative product thinking is explored by a multidisciplinary team of experts. An example of this could be to find new purposes for a product, or to find fresh approaches for promoting a product that's entering a new market field."
"Our goal is to challenge old approaches and collide ideas so, for instance, marketing is not only thought about by marketing experts, but also by people with different backgrounds – new comers and veterans alike," Laura adds. "In addition, some of the seminar speakers of TWINKLE will be joining BrightShops as facilitators and moderators."
October is the last chance to sign up to sponsor a BrightShop and get your own pre-selected challenge solved by a team of international experts. If you would like your company to participate in BrightShops, contact BrightShop manager Doina Mucundorfean directly by calling +358 40 7455 958, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A BrightShop innovator from the land of vampires
Instead of just sitting down and listening, participants of TWINKLE Dialogue sessions get to take part in the discussions themselves. In each interactive Dialogue session, a panel discussion is followed by a workshop where panellists direct and activate open discussions in smaller groups.
Gloria Zúñiga, seminar manager of TWINKLE, explains:
"Within each theme there are questions that are prepared in advance, and then solved in an open discussion. Participants have a chance to interact with experts, act as inventors of new ideas, and evaluate which of the ideas would work best within their own professions and companies. "A Dialogue session ends with a panel, selected by the participants, concluding the outcomes of the group’s discussion," she says.
The following subjects and panellists for Dialogue sessions have been confirmed:
• Different Cultures – Different Leaderships
Panellists: Emilia Lahti, Soulaima Gourani, Nonna Babitzin, Saara Särmä
• Finding your Passion: Entrepreneur or Employee
Panellists: Judith Owigar, Poornima Vijayashanker, Will Cardwell, Yuliya Nesterenko
• Co-Creating Global Brands
Panellists: Jonas Kjellberg, Blanca Juti, Ola Ahlvarsson, Denise Jacob
• Building International Bridges
Panellists: Petri Tuomela, Jouni Lyly-Yrjänäinen, Roberto Castagno
Optolevel is looking for new connections at TWINKLE
Optolevel Oy is a level surveillance systems manufacturer for tanker trucks in Nokia, Finland. They are one of TWINKLE’s sponsors and are providing storage for the event. Optolevel’s sales manager Maarit Heikkilä talks about why their company joined TWINKLE:
"At the event we will be looking to find new contacts to make our brand better known," she explains. "We joined TWINKLE to support a new kind of concept for experts and professionals to meet – one that we see as useful for forming new connections."
She encourages other companies to take part in TWINKLE as sponsors and guests. "A small group of professionals has created something big, so it's worth seeing what kind of possibilities this could bring to your company."
