And the last presentation of today will be held by Mr. Antti Veranen, from Advenced Business Management Ltd. from China and Finland. He is going to end the day with an interesting speech about the three cultural groups in the world and how they are divided. He will state that it is easier to read into these groups that commonly thought, so he is going to break these stereotypes.
And with Antti’s speech the presentation panel will be over, and everyone will be invited to the afterparty which will take place on a ship! The ship will be located near the conference, in the river Daugava where all the participants will have a much more private atmosphere for networking, chatting and partying.
