November 20, 2013 (Powerhomebiz.com) Carsten Ovens and Dr Christoph Lymbersky, both internationally recognized experts in turnaround management, were available all night to answer questions about corporate restructurings and the turnaround process in a professional environment.
The fifth Knowledge Night (Nacht des Wissens) in Hamburg, Germany, was a great success for every institution involved. Around 100,000 interested people visited the participating research institutes, universities and academies to listen to various speakers and to get a look at the research projects being undertaken. All institutions were open until midnight, and the local transport company HVV arranged free shuttles to transport visitors around the city.
At the VWA (Verwaltungs- und Wirtschaftsakademie), Carsten Ovens, senior fellow of the Turnaround Management Society, and Dr Christoph Lymbersky, director of the Turnaround Management Society and senior management consultant at Detecon International, were available to answer students’ questions about corporate transformations, restructurings and turnaround management.
Carsten Ovens’ presentation about brand management was a very popular highlight. Mr Ovens talked about how brands can develop a strong image and how this image can save them from a corporate crisis, but also about how a brand image can be misleading.
“I love interacting with the students, making them aware of what can cause a corporate crisis and teaching them how to manage a company through a turnaround. It’s the best preparation we can do to save jobs in the future,” Dr Lymbersky said at the end of the night.
The Knowledge Night takes place once a year and enjoys a growing reputation far beyond the city of Hamburg.
