Challenges for the financial market

Mr Kapłucha took part in a discussion panel on the future of the financial market in Poland. He stressed the need for changes in the traditional model of hierarchy-based enterprise. He stated: This is why we ought to single out employees with innovative vision and talent. Such leaders must be permitted to contribute to the creation of the enterprise and its new structure.
The CEO of PGNiG, Mrs Grażyna Piotrowska-Oliwa, seconded this opinion. She stated that: The one person-leadership model in a company is a thing of the past.
The participants of the Congress discussed the influence of new technologies on the market and the consumer. Vice-president of Exatel Małgorzata Dziewguć explained how to build business strategy of the company in order to answer the changing consumer needs.
