This entrepreneur from Thun has attended every single Swiss Economic Forum. He recalls a missing red carpet and how Adolf Ogi’s appearance was an event-changer.
The former SEF presenter tells how she “worked on” the editor-in-chief of Swiss television for the Forum and how the famous Spaghettata came about.
