Visibility for the European Industrial LT Landscape Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Visibility for the European Industrial LT Landscapeat META-FORUM 2011

    Budapest — Jun 27, 2011
  • 2. Foreword
    This slide deck was presented on Jun 27, 2011 at META Forum 2011 (www.meta-net.eu).
    It has been slightly adopted. Animations have been removed. The sample for an online templated company presentation had to be distributed over several slides. I have also added some gray narration boxes to provide context where I felt necessary.
    I have listed links and copyrights in the lower right corner. I am sorry if I have missed some. If so, please let me know. I am also happy about comments, criticism, or praise.
    Have fun!
