In Person Presentation: 155 Seaport Boulevard in Boston

Wednesday, September 11th


Speaker: Doug Schoch, Vice President, Siemens Financial Services, Inc.

Supply Chain Finance (SCF) is an important part of Siemens’ initiative to improve working capital and manage supply chain risk. Doug Schoch is responsible for the implementation and growth of the Siemens Supply Chain Finance program in North America. He will present the program and discuss the direction of this industry as a whole.

The SCFprogram makes use of a technology platform that links Siemens and its suppliers and sub-contractors to cost-effective financing. This program has been growing at a healthy rate over the past five years and is continuing to expand into different markets. The nature of supply chain, especially for a global powerhouse such as Siemens, is extremely complex. The international aspects present many challenges when bridging different cultures and countries. How does Siemens work to overcome those challenges and where is most of the growth taking place?

Kinderuniversity Fest

Goethe Institut Boston

Friday, November 1st

In May of 2019 the Goethe-Institut launched the digital Kinderuniversity in the USA at its very own sustainability summit in Chicago. The Kinderuni is now open to everyone, and we aim to make it an important pillar of our language work in the years to come.

As we promote this new platform across the US, we want go beyond just telling you how great the Kinderuni is, we want to invite you to actually see and experience it in person. That is why we want to invite you and your students to our Kinderuniversity-Fest „A world of learning“ at MIT in Cambridge on Nov. 1 of this year. 

At this event you will not just be able to sign up and learn about how to best use and benefit from the Kinderuni, you will also have the chance to participate in all sorts of interactive workshops revolving around STEM-topics and German. We even aim to invite the President of Germany to attend the event and speak to the kids!  

The theme of our Kinderuniversity-Fest, „a world of learning“, will be visible in all events and activities that day: We will encourage students to look beyond their community and invite them to learn about all the opportunities that come with learning a foreign language, going abroad, and experiencing different cultures.  

We will follow up with more information as it becomes available, and we would love for you and your students to become part of our „world of learning“!
