Our mission

We are the platform for the transfer of knowledge and experience for the further development of public organisations worldwide.

We are enthusiastic about learning and knowledge exchange.

When we speak about learning, we highlight the acquisition of new subject knowledge. Subject knowledge that is so uniquely practice-oriented and beneficial that it enables learners to decisively further the development of the institutions in which they work.  For this knowledge exchange we bring highly qualified experts together with specialists from across the world.  As architects of an international network of experts we provide a dynamic space in which innovative ideas and solutions can arise.  When, following our seminars, participants return home with a suitcase brimming with new ideas, we are happy to have made a meaningful impact.  

As an independent institution we identify relevant and highly topical themes and design top-quality further education formats – from practitioners for practitioners.

We are an independent institution operating at the national, supranational and international level. We are passionate about the public sector, whose members our further education programmes train at the absolute premium-class level. Whether a conference, masterclass, intensive training or a seminar with parallel occurring streams in two languages – through a choice of diverse further education formats each participant has the opportunity to find the most suitable fit for their particular requirements. 

As a global knowledge network we bring together highly qualified people from different organisations.

We are convinced that there is nothing more valuable than receiving a spectrum of perspectives from experts from across the entire world.  For example, how a university communications manager disseminates academic subject matters or how national and international organisations worldwide modernise their work processes. It is this global character that makes us so passionate about our knowledge network. With name badges citing the names of top world-ranking institutions, our experts come together from different countries to the global metropolis of Berlin. It is these diverse practice backgrounds and expertise subject areas underscored with a clear commonality in dynamic engagement, inspiration and love of sharing expert knowledge that makes our events so distinctive and productive.

We provide certainty in informed decision-making and professional success.

Challenges are part of daily professional life, with different solutions, opinions or actors. Through the exchange with highly-qualified personalities from the public sector we help our seminar participants to become top experts in their area of specialization. We provide participants with a knowledge-horizon that gives them the capacity to make informed decisions and to discern which pathway can best lead their specific institution most effectively towards the future.

Through this we generate a sustainable contribution to quality and innovation in the public sector.

We have a clear vision: to be able look back in 30 years’ time and discern that our further education programmes have made a substantial contribution to the transformation of public institutions. For we recognise clearly that it is ultimately the people living within communities, cities and regions who benefit strongly from a well-organised, cutting-edge and up-to-date institution that is always highly attuned to changing times. Thus, this vision is our destination, a vision that drives our entire team and one that we consistently pursue through designing and delivering high-quality continuing education courses and through the continual expansion our network of experts.

Christoph Brauner, CEO

„I am always excited when I see what a great atmosphere is present during our seminars! There are discussions, questions, reflection and analysis taking place. There are people who are keen to learn new things, to further educate themselves and who are passionate about change and development. I am filled with pride that every week our team and our experts succeed in making this spirit of innovation be felt within every single seminar room anew.”
