Knigge workshop

Women’s Day 2019 will conclude with a Knigge workshop. The workshop will be led by Susanne Abplanalp, an independent coach, consultant and speaker for national and international corporations, SMEs, organizations and training institutes. The workshop is open to all students, company representatives and employees of the university. There is no registration needed.

The aim of the workshop is on the one hand to give the young audience important advice in a relaxed way and on the other hand to take away the fear of unfamiliar situations. Knigge is an important topic that many students are confronted with shortly before they start their careers. The focus of the workshop is on the topics “first working day” and “small talk”. The tips will help you to master everyday working life in a knigge-like way and to appear more self-confident.
