Dear Mr Mustermann,
There is a lot of information every day and there are a number of ways to search for data, new ideas, technical know-how etc....
Why do you even attend conferences and seminars at all? Because this is more focused, it is one way to get new ideas, which you probably never thought of before, there are new and great opportunities to start a cooperation. Take a chance with quite a number of events in autumn, which we introduce in this newsletter to give you new impulses.
Have a good time
Dr. Petra Strunk
