On 21 September 2016, our Alumni had the opportunity to visit the renowned Finnish design company Marimekko and take a look behind the scenes of the world-famous design brand.
The event started with a presentation by Päivi Lonka, Chief Sales Officer of Marimekko, who gave an overview of the company’s current state globally and shared interesting and relevant insights. Päivi also spoke about the successful execution of Marimekko’s internationalisation strategy over the past few years and revealed the company’s future plans.
Around 30 members of the Henley Alumni in Finland attended the visit to learn more about Marimekko, and to meet and network with their peers. As a special feature, our Alumni had the chance to glimpse into the next generation of Marimekko designs.
The next company visit will take place on 13 October 2016, where we will visit the National Defence University of Finland.
