Sharpen senses and develop potentials

Oliver Hahr held opening speech at Junior Chamber’s Summer School in Stuttgart

Stuttgart, August 17, 2010 – On August 13, the two-day Summer School of the Junior Chamber Baden-Württemberg started in the state’s capital city. The training weekend was themed „Sharpen senses. Develop potentials. Discover Stuttgart”. Suited to this topic, an entrepreneur from Stuttgart has been chosen for the keynote: Oliver Hahr writes success stories with his PR agency oha communication.

Sharpening your senses means, to put into question. In doing that, every wall becomes a door, as the US philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson noted. For what could you get enthusiastic about? What would you like to change and which opportunities open up? “Leaving the comfort zone is the first step that has to be made to develop one’s potential”, explains Oliver Hahr. In 2007, he resigned from his permanent position to start his own business.

The consultancy and agency for international Public Relations oha communication has grown to five employees by now. “Oliver is the perfect cast for the keynote”, says Dr. Annegret Stegmann, one of the organizers of the Summer School 2010. “He is an entrepreneur, advises companies and brings them together with people, with whom they can develop their potential.”

The Summer School is a training weekend for members of the Junior Chamber in Baden-Württemberg and executives from all over Germany. The goal is to bundle the educational opportunities of the network. Topics of the workshops are creativity and communication, leadership and project management, social media and websites. The Summer School is unique in Baden-Württemberg and is hosted in another city every year.
