"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 contents very well. The common basis for further action was laid."
Ingrid Blumenthal, Managing Director ALIUD PHARMA® GmbH, Vice President Generics Germany

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!

"Mr. Overlack was a speaker at the NEW WORK EVOLUTION 2019 in Karlsruhe and inspired the participants with his presentation on how managers and employees can learn constructively from failed projects and turn them into foundations for future successes - in other words, allow for a culture of mistakes or trust. Mr. Overlack packed all this in an exciting and emotional way - highly recommended!"
Conny Fautz, Appsphere AG, #NEW WORK EVOLUTION 2019

"I was really curious to see what Bert Overlack's talk at #Elevate2019, "Success and failure are two sides of the same coin", was going to teach me. Bert talked about the inevitable connexion between loss of control, high level of stress and cognitive performance. He talked about second chances. What I particularly liked was how personal and yet universal his story was. We really could identify with Bert's ups and downs, and find in his experience the courage to overcome our own challenges. The sentence which struck me was: "We don't fail from the sky". I loved the pun and the meaning of the sentence."
