Adela Plesnik Schicker
Dunning Kruger, Avoiding Procrastination and Filtering Fake News
Would you like to be smarter than you already are? Work better with the information you were given and find ways to use your already great mind even better?
Let’s wander together to the unknown world of biases, mind*ucks, and errors of judgment. With some help from scientific research, a good amount of humor, and practical tools, let us improve our abilities to tell the right information from the bad one. This is crucial in achieving self-improvement, better judgment, and making the right decisions. Your critical thinking will be tested in a couple of case studies and exercises, and after this workshop, you might find that you are much more decisive and much harder to fool.
Keep your minds open, but not so open that your brains fall out. “
— Walter Kotshcing

What is Diversity?
In Conversation with:
Higradius focus on dispute management
Two heads are better than one, and in business, that adage often holds true. By merging or through acquisitions, two companies can group their resources for attractive synergies and benefits.
But such joining of forces doesn’t happen overnight and without due diligence and forward planning Credit / O2C can find themselves in a frustrating, costly and negative environment.
Having successfully negotiated 4 acquisitions in recent times and with Covid as a backdrop, the team at Celanese will demonstrate how to avoid the pitfalls.
PO vs Invoice data e-interchange between vendors and clients occurs more frequently than before.
Launching is driven by clients who save AP costs. Isn’t it at the expense of vendors?
Are there any new challenges for OTC?
Is process automation scalable if clients use standardized 3rd party e-portals?
Challenges with non-standard and governmental e-portals.
Diversity embraces nationality, culture, race, gender, age, religion, education, sexual orientation and disability.
Our panel will discuss their personal experiences , company initiatives and inspirations for us all to share.
