"

“Exciting, stimulating, challenging times. The key mix for generating growth is inventive minds, immersed in the leading state of technology, and experienced, but not blinkered management.”

Graeme Chipp

Managing Director/CEO, Growth Solutions Group

“We’re excavating what’s new in Silicon Valley. This is where everything is happening: digital transformation, AI, startups – everything is happening here. But we didn’t know all the solutions, some of them were really enlightening. Actually, the startups are about dreams. And we never thought that you could pursue a dream and then you see it happen, and then it becomes a multi-billion dollar game or company. It’s really inspiring.”
Sherif Mansour
Head of Recruitment, National Bank of Egypt
“As a company we value a lot what we do today and we know pretty well what we’ll do tomorrow. But getting insights and ideas, having an open mind on what comes after tomorrow, that’s the biggest value we found through engaging with Silicon Valley.”
Terry Verkuijlen
Executive Vice President, Vanderlande
I’ve learned so much in the last week. We’ve seen Google, Tesla and so many other companies. Each one had great insights. There’s a lot I can take from them and bring back to incorporate into my own business.
Greville Pabst
Executive Chairman, WBP Property Group, Australia
After a week here it’s been fantastic meeting speakers. They tickle those parts of your brain where its things you’ve always thought about but never had time to stop and think about properly. But these guys have been fantastic, they’ve definitely given us a different approach.
Salvatore Navarra
CEO, Chairman & Director, PFE S.p.A, Italy
Coming in person to Silicon Valley provided insights which would have been impossible to get anywhere else. It gives you a better, more tangible feel. We can take a lot of these key learnings, these real details and real life situations and try to synthesize that into something that would work for us.
Thai Van Linh
Head of Smart City Initiative
This week here at Silicon Valley Innovation Center has been very fruitful to us, to understand some of the technologies that are entering the market, that are being adopted here and that can also be applied in the supply chain, in the production area, and in every aspect that is currently separated in our segment and needs to be integrated and automated.
Daniel Filippo
General Sales Engineer, Petrobras Distribution, Brazil
Companies here are so open to sharing information. Companies would sit down with us and say literally, ‘How can we help you? How can we help you achieve your goals?
Randy Richmond
VP of Lending, Catholic Credit Union
That was an amazing and inspiring program: Getting exposed to Silicon Valley environment and mindset, seeing all the different technologies and innovative organizations (startups and big corporation) supporting those technologies, and interact with Silicon Valley insiders on-site.
Sebnem Dag Guven
Vice President of Strategy at Akbank, Turkey
This is our first trip to Silicon Valley and when you start thinking about new technologies and directions -it begins here, and this is a completely different experience. When we want to move to innovation – this is what we are looking at Silicon Valley.I appreciate the support that was given by SVIC and the knowledge we gained during our short trip.
Krishnan Sinnathamby
Director at MEMScom Technology, Malaysia
It was a great pleasure for me to see all the companies and technologies, to learn what these companies are doing and to know how the future will lool like. The program was very useful, the engagement with companies we visited was great. Thank you.
Ghaleb Saad Alyamani
Managing Director for Wholesalers Sales Operations, Abdul Latif Jameel , Saudi Arabia
It’s my first time to San Francisco and the Valley. Even though I heard a lot about it, read a lot about it, google it if you like, it doesn’t compare to coming here and actually meeting people, hearing the stories, and really get observed into that stories. We came with a few things we wanted to achieve: how can we build an innovation culture, how we can positively contribute to our ecosystem: what are the things we need to start or finish: how do we use water for example, and how do we look into environmental monitoring on app, and how we can use drones and the whole range of other technologies.
Megan Harris
Innovation and Partnerships at Bank of Queensland, Australia
The program made by SVIC was a great experience. We read about Silicon Valley, we hear about innovation challenge, speed, disruption, and when you come here and see the real ideas, the real innovation, and real people, it validates everything. You leave with a sense of being a part of something to go forward and make changes in your company with confidence.
