Dear Reader,

Seeking the latest in management thinking and practical, pioneering solutions for your business? IMD’s largest program Orchestrating Winning Performance (OWP) promises to deliver. To bring you even closer to today’s challenges and innovations, we’ve lined-up a series of keynote speakers and insight sessions with special guests. This month we talked with two of them, Jetman, Yves Rossy and from the Swiss technology university EPFL, Claudio Leonardi of ClipAir project.

We are also pleased to announce Anadarko Petroleum Corporation Chairman and CEO, James T. Hackett as keynote speaker, in addition to John Micklethwait, Editor-in-Chief of The Economist.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
