Business Communication – The Language of Successful People
According to a study of the renowned Gallup Institute, professional success largely depends on how effectively and convincingly we communicate. Expertise in a special field is no longer enough. In an age of international competition, it is not only good ideas and visions that make people successful, they will also need the ability to convince clients, collaborators, colleagues or superiors and instil enthusiasm in them. The formula is: Success = Expertise + Communication2. This entertaining paper will let the audience in on the fundamental secrets of successful communication for immediate use in professional or private life:
- Convince them right – The most important building blocks of effective communication
- How to win over every interlocutor
- The Psychology of Communication – What you simply have to know

Events – Marketing between aspiration and reality
The classic tasks to be fulfilled by a marketing event are: information, emotion, action, motivation. The right mix and the appropriate application of these elements are the key to successful events. Event marketing is meanwhile recognized as an effective marketing tool, and more than ever, it can be a loaded field between "idea and life", aspiration and reality. Clients, partners, media, interested parties seem to be suffering from information overload and event overload alike. We get the feeling that the Olympic motto "faster, higher, stronger" has come to be extended by the notions "more sensational, more sophisticated, more extraordinary, cooler, crazier, more extravagant etc." in event marketing. Nevertheless, or maybe even precisely for this reason, a few fundamental issues of event marketing have to be revisited:
Perfect planning, perfect timing, original ideas – so why did it flop?
How can events be organized so as to be sustainable?
How can events stand out in today´s onslaught of information and be remembered by visitors, clients and partners?
What are the strategies, instruments and building blocks needed to create a new event culture – in particular in times of crisis?
Can modesty and reduction give events added credibility?
How can we play for more effect with fewer resources?
An event always intends to instil enthusiasm in the audience – for the moment. However, the long-term objective is customer retention and access to new target groups. How can we straddle the fence?
How can events be aligned to the values and needs of the audience?
What is it that makes an event successful?

Strategic Communication in the Age of Constant Change
"Change" – US-President Obama was not the first one to use this buzzword. Change is the only constant in our living, working and media environments. New media accelerate the discourse which is now no longer local but global. The business and financial crisis confront enterprises and organisations with what, in some respects, are entirely new challenges: safeguarding and developing your reputation with lasting effect becomes a key issue. To achieve this, strategic communication has to be fast, intelligent, innovative and most of all: credible.
