The Chamber of Commerce Finland-Switzerland: Digital Trust – Threat or Opportunity?

Digital Trust – Threat or Opportunity?

Digitalisation is a global trend shaping our society and business domains. As the world we know changes into an all connected environment we are facing not only opportunities but also fear and threats towards the digital unknown. Should we focus on threats or can we overcome those and instead look at the endless possibilities that lies in digital trust? Trust is vital. Focusing on cyber security and digital trust, and the opportunities, models and collaboration, our keynote speakers will highlight most interesting trends and we encourage you to have an open discussion. The Chamber of Commerce Finland-Switzerland and Netox Oy invite you to discuss the challenges and possibilities of cyber security, to share your insights, and to network. Welcome to our Breakfast of Trust!

Taking account Kyrö's founding story, there is absolutely no better location for the launch event than Hewing Hotel Rooftop Spa Pool and Sauna.



ABOUT KYRÖ DISTILLERY COMPANY:
Like many great ideas (and half of the Finnish population), the idea for Kyrö Distillery Company was conceived in a sauna by a group of friends with a shared love of rye whisky. 

The obvious question on everybody’s lips was why hasn’t anybody made a Finnish rye whisky, especially given the fact that Finns consume six times more rye than the world average and rye bread is the official national dish! From there the idea grew and before long, our distillery found a perfect home in an old dairy in the Finnish village of Isokyrö.

After some gentle renovations, stills were first heated up in 2014 and we now sell our products in dozens of countries around the world. Kyrö is proud to be the world’s northern most gin and whisky distillery producing the finest single malt rye whisky and rye gin.

DATE AND TIME:

Finnish Business Council Singapore: Nordic Ambassadors' Luncheon

Dear Members and Friends,

Wrapping up a year of fruitful collaborations, the Nordic Chambers and Business Associations are delighted to invite you to the Nordic Ambassadors' Luncheon with Singapore’s NEA Director as the guest of honour. 

The theme for the event on December 10, is Sustainable Development – for which joint efforts, innovation and exchange are crucial.

The Nordic countries have all committed to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the 2030 Agenda and are pursuing the goals at an international level as well as working towards building sustainable societies at home. Singapore is equally very ambitious, being both a Green and a Smart Nation. 
 
The luncheon will showcase that Singapore and the Nordics share both similarities and common interests.

After a three-course sustainable lunch is served, the four Nordic corporations will share successful sustainable business cases that put the SDG’s into practice.

We look forward to seeing you there!
