Our workshops

It is not easy to choose the right advisor. We offer concentrated workshops with high value for decision-making. You can get to know us in an uncomplicated way and at the same time get the first important inputs! By "workshop" we mean a short consulting format in which we only work for you or your company in the areas as described below. It is not a "workshop" in the sense of a standardized knowledge transfer or a seminar with many different participants, but a compact and focussed consulting format exclusively for you or your company!

Depending on the definition of the scope, the prices for the workshops defined below start at 4,500.00 EUR and depend on the number of participants from your company and the depth of the desired analysis - more details will be discussed in advance! For the preparation, implementation and follow-up we need about 2 calendar weeks, the part of work with you and your team takes about 1/2 - 1 day.
