„This year, the theme for the Women’s Forum Global Meeting is “The open world: compete, cooperate, create”: what are the reasons behind this choice? The underlying theme concerns how, in the “open” world – open source, open data, crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, crowdmarketing, etc. can creativity best be nourished. “ Véronique Morali, President, Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society
„We ask the question in order to find out whether this is a continent that is cooperating or whether the countries that make up Europe are nevertheless in competition on the markets, looking to conquer customers, to advance their companies in the major global discussions.“ (Extract from an Interview made by Céline Louis for the live Orange blog.) The german manager magazin called her „Dompteuse de Deauville“.
