Overview

Over the last 18 months, companies have had to rethink how they organize and manage their organizations.

Thanks to the global economic support measures and the resilience shown by the companies, we are confident a new economic renaissance is on the horizon.

Customer habits have changed significantly, with many shoppers opting to make their purchases online rather than in stores. This has led to a change in demand and created additional uncertainty for companies, which have had to adapt to new needs. During these precarious times, companies need to accelerate the implementation of new, effective digitalization and distribution models to properly address the topics of the “new normal” and get back onto the path toward sustainable growth.

Join us at our TopLine 2021 event to learn how executives and senior management in leading companies are developing their short- and long-term growth strategies and find out why Simon-Kucher is the unmatched leader in top-line strategy and execution, with proven, enhanced market approaches and business results.

Why should you attend?
