What excites you most about this year’s GVNW symposium? 

The new location and an outlook on what will be “high fashion” for the next Oktoberfes. We will see some new styles during the Bavarian evening of the symposium.

What is your fondest memory of the GVNW symposium?

The interesting lectures we could listen to, some will be out of our daily scope BUT worth listening to close of their close connection to risk management.

What is the biggest risk you have taken?

As a “Nordic” guy wearing traditional Bavarian costumes during the Bavarian evening…

What is the most important lesson you have learned?

Sometimes it is worth to take big risks

What is your greatest achievement?

To appear self-confident in a Bavarian dress, while I feel totally lost and uncertain about this “crazy” look….

Tell us a secret

Psssstttt…This year I will switch over to a typical Nordic look…
