We consequently continue our "Green Way" as a company for business psychology and organizational dynamics: Our 1st pool car - 100% electric

We have been supporting projects and organizations for "people and animals" for more than 12345 days now. We understand these activities as a self-image of our company.

The protection of our environment is close to all our hearts - that's why we recommend venues that are easily accessible by public transport when holding seminars.
