His video invitation to the ACEA project's 'Innovation for Europe, Skills for the Future' roundtable highlighted how important an inquisitive, international mindset is to future prospects: "Growing up, I had the opportunity to move around a bit, and have lived across two continents and several countries. Being international and mobile has helped me seize the opportunity to gain expertise and skills - but it also gave me a chance to see how things are done differently across the whole world."

The roundtable will take place in Brussels on 10 October 2012, and will see the Presidents and CEOs of some of Europe's largest car manufacturers - including Mr Marchionne - join European policymakers to exchange views with tomorrow's generation of leaders; the students and graduates of today. Marchionne is challenging Europe's youth to enter a video question for a chance to win a seat at the roundtable:
"Tell us what you want to know, ask us a question. Just use your camera or smartphone to record your message. You can ask us anything you like about future mobility, skills and innovation. All you need is your imagination."
