Feintool: a member of the St. Gallen Symposium circle of
On 3 and 4 May 2012, current and future political and
business leaders will meet at the 42nd St. Gallen
Symposium. As a member of the Symposium's international
circle of benefactors, Feintool is supporting the event for
the second time.
For CEO Heinz Loosli, there is no doubt that "the
combination of the expertise of today's leaders and the
drive of young talents holds enormous potential. We at
Feintool know from our own experience that
cross-generational cooperation is the key to facilitating
access to new and unconventional ideas and knowledge."
The subject of this year's symposium is "Facing
Risk". Risk is something that confronts us in both our
personal and our professional environment, presenting us
with new challenges every day. We instinctively tend to
minimize risk, and find ourselves up against a fundamental
contradiction: the world of business shows that higher
growth rates and prosperity can only be achieved by a
willingness to accept more risk.
At the St. Gallen Symposium, the topic of Facing Risk is
four angles which provide an all-round view and
highlight the existence and significance of risk both for
individuals and for companies.
