References CFO Dialogs
I visited the CFO dialogue for the first time and am excited about the event and the concept. The lecture topics were in step with actual practice and up to date. The concept is very efficient, a combination of top-class lectures, interesting fireside chats and one-on-one meetings between the participants and competent solution providers. I have had many interesting discussions, won interesting suggestions and I am highly motivated to implement some of them in the very near future. The environment was great and the organization perfect. A successful event!

Extremely professionally does econique manage to create a framework that allows for very open and constructive discussions. It is the result of extraordinarily professional preparations and a rare--usually hard-to-find--service awareness. I thank you for two successful days.
WINTERHELLER software Gesellschaft m.b.H
Many thanks for the perfect arrangements. Both the organisation and the accommodation fully convinced me. The range of participants was really comprehensive, and I also appreciated the quality of contacts. The preparation, discussion plan, etc. were set up well, and I found them very helpful. I would also like to point out the helpfulness and cordiality of your staff. A further point was the strict time management, which was good and absolutely necessary.
Michael Beichhold, Named EPM Account Manager, ORACLE Deutschland GmbH
It was actually my first time at one of these events, so I arrived with low expectations and the target to do some networking. Thanks to a highly efficient organisation I was able to establish contacts and listen to interesting presentations at the same time.
Markus Wedig, Manager, Accounting and Controlling, Cargill GmbH
A very positive function with great dialogue partners.
Dr. Martin Hill, EVP, Technidata AG
Once again: very pleasant within the entire setting, interesting issues and speakers. Over the years, useful and lasting contacts have been established. This is what is so positive about this event, which really has an enduring effect.

A well-organised and very successful performance. I got acquainted with lots of interesting people and gained new inspirations.

A perfectly hosted occasion within a compact setting featuring presentations that covered the relevant topics very well—something I'd come back to!
Joachim Rödiger, CFO, Billfinger Berger Industrial Services AG
Highly professional organisation. A great combination of speakers and providers. The CFO Dialog offers an ideal platform for gaining and exchanging information about the financial sector.
Kay Roß, Management, European Finances, Melitta Haushaltsprodukte
The summit convinced me on the one hand through the sheer multiplicity of participants from different industries, and on the other hand through the combination of speakers. A very important component was the informal discussion round, since the exchange of experiences with others is more effective than the mere listening to of presentations. The location was very well selected in every way and econique's organization was exemplary.
Elmar Kelkel, Division Leader for tax and audit, VSE AG
The 6th CFO Dialog was a good mixture of interesting information from high-ranking advisers as well as an opportunity for networking.
Sandra Volmer, Head of financial and management accounting, Schwarz Pharma AG
I notice again and again that the participants in the CFO summits are highly motivated to exchange ideas. At the first coffee break, I noticed how lively the conversation already was. The reserved manner at other seminars or conferences certainly does not prevail here. That's communication!
Liesel Knorr, Executive Officer of the German accounting regulations committee (DRSC)
The 6th CFO Dialog under the direction of Prof. Dr. Axel v. Werder was characterized again by a good mixture of informative presentations and deep discussions in small rounds, which gave me good suggestions. The meeting place in the hotel Interconti, the good organization by the econique team as well as the successful evening event provided for the suitable framework of the conference.
Meinrad Schad, Head of Finance, investment and administration of assets, Voith AG
In a fairly short amount of time, the event organizers were successfully able to provide an open and free platform for discussion. The often existing reluctance of participants at other such events was kept within its boundaries here. If it will be possible to keep the topics of the meeting and the group of participants at the management level it will surely be an enrichment on an otherwise unclear market.
Detlev Kruse, Director of Finance/IT, Berliner municipal transport services
I would like to express great praise for the meeting in Munich. I participated for the first time and came to Munich with rather mixed feelings. The top-class participants of the dialogue as well as the excellent presentations of the speakers pleasantly surprised me. The private discussions were much less product-oriented and less stressful that I thought. All together you have showed how extremely well and professional you are able to organize. Again, my congratulations on such an excellent event!
Christoph Todt, Controlling Manager, Hapag-Lloyd Airlines, mbH
The combination of presentations, discussions and informal discussion rounds with competent, non-obtrusive advisors was new for me, and all the more refreshing. I could learn a lot and pick up interesting insights. The overall scope was very pleasant and the organization was perfect!
Dirk Eichelberger, CFO, REHAU AG + Co.
econique offers the most economic form of information distribution and thereby a win-win situation – professionally organized, in short perfect.
Lars Martin Klieve, City Councilman, Gelsenkirchen
The CFO Dialog was the perfect opportunity for a small firm such as ourselves to get to know the professional decision-makers and learn about their daily working information. We were openly accepted and could offer new solutions for the filling up of projects with appropriate staff. The presentations also gave us very good insight into the current and future basic conditions of finance and accounting. Many thanks to the staff of econique for the excellent organization and the continuous support throughout the event. We value the worth of such an event and would glady cooperate in the context of a CFO Dialog in the future.
Bernd Zmuda, business manager / owner, finance-recruiting-consulting OHG
The CFO Dialog offered an excellent platform for a multifold exchange between the participants and the presentators and thereby created a forum which allowed for comprehensive networking. Contentwise the current topics were not only dealt with on a theoretical basis, but rather the practical perspectives were discussed as well. And all this in a very nice and pleasant ambience.
Dr. Ursula Schäffeler, senior tax manager, Deloitte
I found the structure of the event especially successful, that is the mix of a plenum, smaller informal discussion rounds and the possibility to exchange experiences thanks to the generous breaks.
Stefan Hartl, head of internal audit & risk management, GlaxoSmithKline GmbH & Co. KG
First-hand qualified presentations combined with the possibility for stimulating exchanges of experience between participants made the CFO Dialog a truly worthwhile event. econique's excellent organization of the event and the pleasant ambience further contributed to the event.
Dietrich-E. Zschocke, division leader of the corporate branch for finance, Aareon AG
Thanks to the top-class presentators, the information could be taken as 'first-hand', in a very well-organized context (whereby not only the professional daily organization counts, but the truly well-done evening program as well) of being able to discuss right away with likewise top-class discussion partners from the participants, and furthering networking discussions. Many thanks to the presentators and to the organizational team!
Holger Bätz, director internal audit/M&A, BBDO Germany GmbH
This year's 'CFO summit' was a fantastic platform for a dialogue between financial managers of leading German companies. This was mainly achieved through the overall concept with its mix of informative presentations, fireside chats and one-to-one discussions between participants and several solution providers, among them D&B Germany.
The outstanding organisation, a high level of service throughout, and the all-round successful framework programme provided by econique were the key to the success of the two days in Berlin.
Uwe Bergner, Consultant Risk Management Solutions, D&B Deutschland GmbH
The 'CFO Dialog' helps to profoundly discuss current issues in the area of financial expertise with top-class representatives of all industries and company sizes and to find solution methods for the own company.
The company presentations and the round table discussions are very valuable means to broaden one's own view on particular topics. For some topics, competent consulting partners, who are able to provide potential system-relevant support, were available for discussions. Everything was organised really professionally and the event took place in a great environment.
Jens U. Keil, Director Controlling and Accounting, Wal-Mart Germany GmbH & Co. KG
I attended the 'CFO Dialog' for the first time. The lectures and the informal talks at the convention and also the evening programme provided me with a lot of interesting information and useful ideas for the further development of GP Günter Papenburg AG.
