Wirtschaftsge(h)spräch on top of the Donnersberg mountain
On November 11, 2016, we invited round again for the next Westpfälzer Wirtschaftsge(h)spräch – Wirtschaftsge(h)spräch means representatives of economics are having a conversation while going for a walk. It took place on top of the Donnersberg mountain in rough November weather. Despite the damp and cold weather around 20 representatives of economics, science, politics and civil society wandered over the mystical and foggy Donnersberg following ancient celtic footmarks. Inspired by our guide and club member Erwin Schottler we had the opportunity for networking as well as some animated discussions, amongst others about the question what makes a company attractive for skilled employees. Afterwards the plant visit of BorgWarner Turbo Systems in Kirchheimbolanden gave an impressing example of how innovative companies in our region can successfully compete on international level and how they can ensure their own need of skilled personnel by intensive apprenticeship programs.
