Why is Finland an attractive location for investment? Can businesses benefit from hiring international talent to fill necessary positions? Attracting international investment and talent is vital for the growth of Finland’s economy and businesses operating here.

Together with Amcham Finland, MPS Enterprises CEO Marcus Herold invites you to discuss answers to these questions at the yearly MPS Executive Breakfast Seminar on November 28th.

Etlatieto CEO Petri Rouvinen and Amcham Finland CEO Alexandra Pasternak-Jackson will introduce Finland as a Business Location, a pioneering barometer of over 300 foreign affiliate C-Level executives about their experience of leading a business in Finland. The interview study was conducted by Amcham and Invest in Finland, in cooperation with MPS, Etla, EK, Mandatum Life and Kantar TNS.

Tallink Silja CEO Margus Schults will then share his own experiences of being an international leader in Finland, as well as personal views on its possibilities and difficulties.

Managing Director of MPS Executive & Board Roy Herold will follow by explaining how you can find international talent and empower international leadership in Finland.
