We cordially invite you to the lecture by Albert Schmitt, Managing Director of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, on the topic ‘High performance needs dissonance – What can we learn from a world-class orchestra?’!

The topic will be the orchestra's formula for success as a high-performance team – that success is not achieved through permanent harmony, but by consciously dealing with dissonance and conflict tension.
