Corporate restructuring unplugged
17:00 - 18:30
Bockenheimer Landstraße 2/4
“New year, new luck” is a well-known saying – but most companies and investors are still looking to 2024 with caution, because The economic environment is and remains a challenge in which tried-and-tested processes and planning no longer work as easily as before, but have to be adapted to current circumstances and developments and readjusted accordingly on an almost daily basis.
“Corporate restructuring and transformation” are two buzzwords that are frequently used at the moment. With a corporate transformation, as a comprehensive process to fundamentally change business strategy, processes and structures, companies can adapt to new market conditions and remain competitive.
The implementation of a transformation can bring with it a variety of challenges, such as resistance to change, difficulties in implementing new processes and systems, as well as problems with communication and collaboration between the respective stakeholders. It is therefore important that the company plans and executes the transformation carefully to ensure that it is successful.
As always, it is not too late to set the course.
Join us live on Tuesday, March 12, 2024 from 16:30-18:00 in the Opernturm when our top-class panel discusses these statements, among others:
- Dr. Stephan Schwilden, MBA, Managing Partner, act AC Tischendorf Rechtsanwälte:
“In addition to a pinch of courage and creativity, the be-all and end-all of successful personnel restructuring is, above all, transparency in the process at all times and clear communication to all stakeholders.“
- Dr. Gunnar Binnewies, Managing Director, goetzpartners:
“From an entrepreneur’s point of view, restructuring should be quick, cost-effective and risk-free wherever possible. However, one ingredient is still missing to ensure that the results retain their value for as long as possible.“
- Marcus Brans, Managing Partner, Gauly Advisors:
“In the context of change, communication becomes a powerful tool. Clear signals, precision and an appreciative dialogue turn the transformation from a challenge into a success.”
Look forward to an exciting discussion with interesting experts and take the opportunity to strengthen your network and make new contacts with managers and financial executives from various industries.
You are also welcome to bring along interested colleagues and/or contacts from your environment – please register by March 8, 2024, as the number of participants is unfortunately limited.
