And so this is Christmas, for weak and for strong

Dear members of Tampereen Insinöörit. Current year is about to end, and Christmas is soon here. Covid has lasted long and needed special actions from all of us. Various restriction will be valid indefinite time. This means new thinking how to get forward. However, Covid will end in time and some day we return little closer to pre covid times. Digitalisation and hurry can wait if we spend more time with people around us.

Finland is small country. It has been said that we do not have enough capital investments, nor natural resources, our home market size is too small, we are far side of Europe both location and cultural context. We do not have this and that.

However, we have a good sprit. New products and services cannot be built if team lacks resilience or cannot solve problems during long road of product creation. We can constantly read news about new products and innovations from Finland.

I encourage you to use part of this spirit for good of your loved ones. Let us bring warmth and joy into families, calling to friend would work and helping neighbour in case of need brings the Christmas to us. Covid came during our watch. Let us do our part!

I wish you merry Christmas and better new year 2022 on behalf of board Tampereen Insinöörit.

Kind regards,
Erkki Salonen
