Support for the outpatient Mainz children and young people Hospice (December 2017)

Christmas provides a welcome opportunity to help people in need. For our client companies, this has become a holiday tradition.

The care provided by the Mainz Hospice Company has touched us deeply. It offers outpatient palliative and hospice counseling to those facing the challenges of serious illness and the end of life.

This is why this year we took a quote by Leo Tolstoy to heart:

"Remember that there is only one important time and that is now".

We want to help make the lives of children whose time is running out, and of their families, a bit easier and more comfortable.

For this reason, we made a generous donation to the outpatient child and youth hospice service run by the Mainz Hospice Association Christophorus e.V.

With around 200 participants, this year's German Personnel Consultants' Day in Bonn, organized by the Federal Association of German Management Consultants (BDU), was once again a highlight for all personnel consultants and headhunters active in this sector!

In view of the predominant theme of digital revolution and digital transformation, all challenges and change processes are clearly centered around the human being and the human capital.

EuroShop – The World’s No. 1 Retail Trade Fair (March 16 – 20, 2017)

The IT-Personalberatung is focused on information technology and high-tech topics. However, most consultants choose to specialize in additional sectors or areas of technology. Viktoria Roenick and Manfred Wenzel, for example, specialize in IT in retail and logistics. Visiting the EuroShop trade fair is therefore a "must" for Ms. Roenick and Mr. Wenzel to keep track of the latest technological developments, to recognize trends, to strengthen our customer network and to gain the special and valuable access to the IT retail candidate market.

Support for the “Förderkreis krebskranke Kinder Stuttgart e.V.” (December 2016)

As we were able to witness first hand how our donation has helped ease the burden of children with cancer and their families in need last year, we decided to make another donation this year to the "Förderkreis krebskranke Kinder Stuttgart e.V.", putting the money we would have spent on Christmas gifts for our clients and partners towards a good cause.

The "Förderkreis krebskranke Kinder Stuttgart e.V." supports children and their parents in need during their treatment and therapy. The project "Blaues Haus" offers families and their sick children a temporal home away from home. Affected families can stay there during their child's inpatient treatment, find some rest and, most importantly, be very near to their children as the "Blaue Haus" is located in the immediate vicinity of the new Olgahospital children's clinic.

Legendary sports cars at Zell am See Airport (08/2015)

Event Video! Click on the picture!

A different kind of networking: 50 businessmen - 50 different sports cars!

Social networking platforms like Xing, LinkedIn, or Facebook have their merits and provide a valuable source of contact and information.But to be honest, how often have they really helped you gain new customers and contracts?

I am firmly convinced that nothing can compete with live events, and I have numerous examples that prove my point.
