We attended the India Business Stories on the 26th of April. It indeed was an great experience.
Some of the interesting stories :
1.“MTR, the journey from an entrepreneur driven Indian company – to a professionally managed Orkla group company”.
Are Nakkim -Director Business Development and IT, Orkla Foods.
2.“Enablers for digitalization in Statkraft” HCL and Statkraft has just signed a major deal
on IT services globally.
Johnny Næss Langsrud -CIO and SVP, Statkraft.
3.The Norwegian Seafood Council,Update on the latest development in India.
Yogi Shergill Director India
There were a couple of interesting peaks at this session, one such was MTR a south India company which was bought over by Orkla Foods a huge Scandinavian brand in 2007 was transformed from a family run company to a professional company operating with standards and process which were up to date with the industry.
Johnny Langsrud mentioned that on his trip to HCL, Delhi recently he realised that it wasn’t the Indians who were weird but it was the other way around. On another note after several years the Norwgian Seafood council has decided to pull out of India, due to insufficient sale and consumption of Salmon in India.
