    It is hard to find a person who's never heard of Blockchain, the record-keeping technology behind bitcoin. Yet few people actually understand what it is, what it does and how this technology can be applied.

    For this event, we have partnered with Andrei Grigorov, Co-founder and CEO of Lausanne-based startup Cerealia that has created an "Agri-commodities trading and financing platform on Blockchain". Andrei will explain how Blockchain technology works, in layman terms, and how it is changing current trade practices, with a focus on agri-commodities (grains).

    About the speaker

    Andrei Grigorov is co-founder & CEO of Cerealia, a Lausanne-based start up specialised in Agri-commodities trading and financing platform on Blockchain.

    Andrei is an agri-products trader with 20 years’ experience in international grains, oilseeds and vegetable oils trading and logistics.

    Traded and executed over 1000 agri-products vessels during his career.

    Has extensive experience in structuring, negotiating trade finance facilities with all Swiss banks involved in this business.

    OWIT LAKE GENEVA SUMMER RECEPTION - NEGOTIATION
    20 June 2019, location TBC

    Do not miss the most significant event of the year. Influential speakers will debate the topic of negotiation. Never an 'old' topic, negotiation is often regarded as 'a dance with your customer or supplier'. If one party knows the steps and the other doesn't, it's difficult to reach an effective agreement.

    During the even, topics such as how to plan before a negotiation, how to ask effective questions, how to 'read' the other's behaviour and how to bargain for the best deal possible will be explored.

    Like it or not, we negotiate every day, with our partners, with our children, with our bosses and, even with ourselves. How do you mange your emotions during a negotiation process? Is negotiation style different for men and women? How do you control the other party and balance the power?

    At the end of the evening you'll be able to have enough tools in your hand to conduct an effective negotiation. You will be inspired and empowered! 

      Our distinguished panelists:

      To be updated. 

      Panel moderator: Hulya Kurt - President, OWIT Lake Geneva
