Advatera. Empowering you through knowledge sharing.

Empowering you through knowledge sharing.

Advatera knowledge sharing groups

Meet colleagues from other organizations and discuss your current challenges face-to-face. Of course, all meetings are confidential: agencies, consultants and vendors are not allowed to take part. This setting allows for a down-to-earth knowledge-sharing environment.

You access a network of digital managers from national and international organizations. A broad variety of organizations is participating such as: ABB, Airbus, Caritas, L’Oréal, Swarovski, Swiss Post, Swisscom, 

All meetings are professionally moderated by Advatera. The meetings are not sponsored by the industry. They are completely advertisement free and neutral. This environment makes open and honest knowledge-sharing possible.

  • There are at least three on-site meetings per expert group per year.
  • And we have on a regular basis online sessions where all members throughout the whole Advatera community are invited. This enables a multinational dialogue on the topics.
  • In addition there are recorded online sessions for members. New recorded sessions are added on a regular basis.
  • In addition, one specific benchmarking call for your organization is included. You specify your current challenge and we set up a call with organizations from the network that are facing the same challenge or have just solved it.
  • As member you have also access to the virtual edition of the Digital Leadership Forum.

Due to the regularity of the meetings, we can address long-term projects, for example, the development of a toolbox for informal benchmarking with other participating organizations. This helps you drive your project.

Share your current challenges and get feedback from the group. Definitely at least one of the participating organizations already faced a similar challenge.
