Unfortunately the second speaker, Mr. Jens Uwe Heuer-James, could not come to the event due to a train strike in Germany. He tried to find alternative ways to get to the event, but unfortunately without any luck. We hope to see Mr Heuer-James another time.

After a coffee break we had a networking activity where all the participants had time do discuss subjects for coming events.
