Simplicity is technology that works for the user
At Philips, we believe that technology should be as simple as the box it comes in — transforming a task into an opportunity, a burden into a pleasure. It’s at the very heart of our brand promise of “Sense and Simplicity”.
Delivering that promise is not easy. It requires imaginative thinking, technical innovation, superb engineering, cutting-edge industrial design, in-depth business knowledge and real leadership. To rise to that challenge, we need the best brains in the business.
Push yourself to the limits
On the course you’ll work in small teams, competing against others in simulated technology roadmap scenarios, determining strategic technology directions and investing in key technology developments. We’ll provide feedback on the impact of your team’s decisions so you can modify your thinking accordingly. Along the way, we’ll throw in a few disruptive events to see how you react. It’s several years’ worth of business experience packed into three days and as close to the future as you can get. You’ll have to use your leadership skills and powers of persuasion to the full if your team is to succeed, but you’ll also have ample opportunity to present your personal opinions on what went right and what went wrong and to prove that you have the drive and ambition to get a top technology job.
The fast track to career success
As a successful graduate of the European Technology Event, you will be offered a position in Philips that truly reflects your ability to identify and assess the impact of new technologies, steering future product development in the right direction to achieve market success. Within a few years you're likely to find yourself in one of Philips’ worldwide technology competence centers, helping to build new businesses from new technologies or working as one of our global technology managers. Whether you opt for a career path in technology, technology management or a mixture of both, you'll have access to an unsurpassed program of personal development and further education - putting you firmly on the road to CTO status within the global Philips organization.
