Drawing from his 20 years of professional journey, which spans major IT and digital programs in Europe and the Middle East, he will share his perspectives on innovatively managing business challenges. His role at Sunrise, where he spearheads IT demand and delivery, digital transformations, and innovation strategies, offers a rich context for understanding the practical applications of strategic management principles in the dynamic field of telecommunications.
