Dear members and friends of SwissCham,

We are pleased to invite you to the Online Panel Discussion “How is the Swiss Education sector adapting to meet the Future of Work?”

In this seminar, we will be exploring this question with an expert panel representing 3 different perspectives in the sector: High School (Montreux International School, Oriental Education), Higher Education (Swiss Education Group), and Vocational Education (Global Swiss Learning).

The seminar will initially outline the context of the Future of Work and then invite the panel to outline the impact of COVID on their organisation, what lessons they have learned, what new gaps in the market they have identified, and what they have done to adapt their product or services in response to the changing environment.

We look forward to e-meeting you.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
