Presidential Guest Speaker: Christian Gansch
Thursday, September 26
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Christian Gansch is a internationally-renowned Grammy winning conductor, music producer and author. Gansch will present a unique coaching concept, which demonstrates the similarities between orchestras and company structures. He compares these similarities and demonstrates what companies can learn from the complex structures in orchestras, which outwardly look like a perfect unit to the audience.
Orchestras with their high potential for human conflicts, leadership issues and complex integrated communications are a perfect example of how to bring a huge variety of specialists and instruments together to form one integrated harmonious unit.
From 1981 to 1990, Christian was leader of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. He then moved into the music industry and produced over 190 CDs worldwide. Since 2003, Gansch has worked as a consultant for a number of major companies with direct reference to communication and "orchestral consciousness". He has also published two books on this subject.
