Industry diversity, innovative spirit and growth: Münsterland is home to a large number of economically strong small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In particular, the Münsterland business location offers the many students at the region's universities an excellent basis for the transition from studies to employment and career development.
For the companies, the employment of female specialists and managers also holds a potential for development that has not yet been exhausted. Female students and graduates are confronted with companies that are economically strong and looking for young talent. Bringing these target groups together and exchanging interests, expectations and potential promises to be a win-win situation for both.
Sharing experiences, promoting exchange and establishing contacts: these are the goals of the Female Talent Day 2022, which is organised by the Competence Centre Women and Career. In workshops with and for female students and company representatives and while networking together, solutions will be developed, ways of cooperation created and experiences shared.

The Kompetenznetzwerk Zukunftssicherung Münster cordially invites you to a lecture by labour law specialist Katharina Meuroth, LL.M. from ALPMANN FRÖHLICH.
The reason for the lecture is the current developments in labour law. The Federal Labour Court ruled at the end of September that a system for the systematic recording of working hours will become mandatory. How can such a system be implemented? Also taking into account the home office and the trust with which one wants to treat one's employees.
Companies also have to deal with the rising minimum wages.
How can these hurdles be overcome?
This and more will be explained digitally via teams on 30 September.
Is succession due in the next few years? This workshop teaches participants how to prepare their company for sale. How do potential buyers view a company? Where do you need to be active and what can a successor take on? The topics include
Germany has set itself the goal of phasing out coal-fired power generation by 2038 at the latest. Current discussions tend to suggest that an earlier end to this power generation will come. In order to make the energy transition a success after all, other options need to be considered. One interesting possibility is the use of (green) hydrogen to replace fossil fuels. Germany has already set an interesting course here.
But what is the hydrogen situation in Denmark? Are there plans there for the use of H2 as a substitute for fossil fuels? Have national hydrogen strategies already been adopted to chart a path towards green energy use? Are there any implemented projects, so-called use cases? What can Germany learn from them? And not to forget: Do hydrogen strategies offer opportunities for German companies?
Answers to these questions will be given in this webinar. Experts from the German-Danish Chamber of Commerce (AHK Denmark) will inform about the opportunities in the Nordic country.
This event will present the latest rulings of the higher courts on construction law and the law on contracts for work and services.

Many comprehensive further training courses such as the Master Craftsman, the Business Administrator HwO or the Designer in the Crafts are eligible for funding through the Upgrading Training Assistance Act (Aufstiegs-BAföG).

When preparing for entrepreneurial independence and/or shortly after starting up, it is not uncommon for tax questions to arise that cannot or may not be answered by the tax offices in the region.
To prevent founders and young companies from falling into impending tax traps, the Westphalia-Lippe Chamber of Tax Advisors and the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce offer an initial consultation on tax law.
Possible topics include the questionnaire for tax registration, which every founder must submit to the tax office in electronic form in a timely manner, as well as questions on turnover and income taxation, the treatment of start-up costs or the legal consequences of the private use of a company car.
Appointments are arranged in advance.
This seminar is for those who work as examiners in the area of further training examinations for the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce and who are involved in the preparation of assignments or want to be involved in the future.

(New) customer acquisition is annoying and frustrating? What if there were new impulses and suggestions here? In the seminar, participants take a closer look at the acquisition process and analyse pitfalls. What preparations can and should I make? Which formulations are effective both in personal and telephone conversations? What factors are important in target group analysis? How do I increase my success rate?
There are many ways to get in touch with (potential) customers. Thanks to digitalisation, we can digitise and automate many processes. In most cases, however, we meet the customer in person at some point or "have to" or want to talk to them. This workshop will also take an intensive look at the following questions: How do I prepare well for the conversation? What are the elements of good customer/sales communication? What hurdles/blockages are there and how do I "solve" them? How do I deal with objections? What strengths do I have that I am not yet aware of in sales communication? Suggestions, answers and strategies will be found to all these questions in the seminar.
