"You managed to appeal to people. The group is very heterogeneous and it is therefore not easy to establish a common ground. By explaining theoretical models of (different) behavior (also in change processes), everyone felt addressed without being lectured at. This enabled the participants to accept the content very well. The common basis for further action was laid." Ingrid Blumenthal, Managing Director ALIUD PHARMA® GmbH, Vice President Generics Germany


"Bert Overlack put the final "icing on the cake" on our executive fall retreat. Drawing on his own experience, Bert Overlack took us on the challenging and always unpredictable path of leadership in stormy times - and times are very stormy these days! With a wide variety of examples, Bert Overlack helped ensure that our retreat was a success for everyone with valuable insights. Thank you very much!" Justus Perschmann, Hch. Perschmann GmbH


"Herr Overlack war Speaker auf der NEW WORK EVOLUTION 2019 in Karlsruhe und begeisterte die Teilnehmer mit seinem Vortrag, in dem es darum ging, wie Führungskräfte und Mitarbeiter aus gescheiterten Projekten konstruktiv lernen können und diese zu Grundlagen zukünftiger Erfolge machen können - auch eine Fehler- bzw. Vertrauenskultur zulassaen. Herr Overlack hat das alles spannend und emotional verpackt - sehr empfehlenswert!" Conny Fautz, Appsphere AG, #NEW WORK EVOLUTION 2019


"Ich war sehr neugierig, was mir der Vortrag von Bert Overlack auf der #Elevate2019 "Erfolg und Scheitern sind zwei Seiten einer Medaille" vermitteln würde. Bert sprach über den unvermeidlichen Zusammenhang zwischen Kontrollverlust, hohem Stresslevel und kognitiver Leistung. Er sprach über zweite Chancen. Was mir besonders gefiel, war, wie persönlich und doch universell seine Geschichte war. Wir konnten uns wirklich mit Berts Höhen und Tiefen identifizieren und in seinen Erfahrungen den Mut finden, unsere eigenen Herausforderungen zu meistern. Der Satz, der mich beeindruckt hat, war: "Wir scheitern nicht am Himmel". Ich mochte das Wortspiel und die Bedeutung des Satzes". Nathalie Bagadey, AFCP
