By women for women: Seminar for female supervisory board members


Due to its duty to monitor the executive board, the supervisory board is of particular importance in a company’s management level. Every individual member of the supervisory board must acquire the skills and knowledge required for such purpose.

By means of our seminar for female supervisory board members, we wish to teach you the basic principles so you can efficiently fulfill your tasks. The seminar’s focus is in particular on the supervisory board members’ rights and duties, the regulatory framework as well as theoretical and practical tax-related and financial basic knowledge: by women for women.

Our experienced consultants from the sectors law, tax and auditing wish to not only offer you content-related training but also the possibility of targeted networking. Therefore, we will provide sufficient networking opportunity by means of a get-together on the evening before the seminar but also by means of our workshops and substantive debates.

The event will take place on 30 September 2016 and will start at 09:00 a.m. at the Hilton Frankfurt City Centre, Hochstraße 4 in 60313 Frankfurt am Main.

Our get-together will take place on 29 September from 07:00 p.m. also at the Hilton Frankfurt City Centre.

We look forward to welcoming you!
