Business Summit

We are proud to present a new format at GLOBART: The GLOBART BUSINESS SUMMIT. In the heart of Vienna – at the Franciscan monastery – GLOBART invited a variety of speakers and guests to focus on thought processes, contemplative exchange and constructive innovation.

The focus of this event was on the possibilities of prospective management competences and leadership issues of the next generation; our best educated generation so far – the Generation Y. A topic that has affects on every successful business and concerns any future-oriented manager. How can we recognize their talents and live up to their expectations? How can we erase their anxieties and fully integrate them into our businesses?

The GLOBART BUSINESS SUMMIT opening took place within the impressive setting of the Franciscan monastery refectory, which was commenced by a vibrant discussion between the star conductor Riccardo Muti and the BCG senior partner Antonella Mei-Pochtler. Muti explained the difficulties and his search for outstanding talents as part of his personal career. His advice for managers would read as follows: “Do not trust in your talent. 70% of success is hard work.”

On April 24, 2015 participants of the workshop day had the opportunity to receive new impulses by top experts and learn from Best Practice examples, raise questions and develop their ideas within discussions. Based on empirical studies of the Generation Y, impulses and selected theories on education, work and leadership culture were widely discussed.

Ultimately, the conclusion was and is, that the employer’s role will have to change: Employees are starting to redefine their tasks independently – they no longer strive to be mere employees, but are paving the way to a new renaissance of loyalty in organisations.


“In music as in business, creative destroyers ensure progress: they open our eyes to the possible and challenge existing boundaries. To recognise, to protect and to promote such talents is one of the most important tasks in leadership..”

“Great conductors succeed by deploying many different talents within an orchestra without losing their individuality. The whole becomes something bigger than just the sum of its parts. Executives in companies are facing the exact same challenge..”

Antonella Mei-Pochtler, Senior Partner & Managing Director, The Boston Consulting Group

“You have to be convinced by your own ideas in order to convince others. Only then will they follow you.”

“Do not rely on your talent. 70% of success is hard work.”

Riccardo Muti, chef conductor Chicago Symphony Orchestra

“Since this generation demands a lot and offers little loyalty, we need new instruments for human resource development..”

Stephan A. Jansen, Scientific Director of the Karl-Schlecht-Stiftung
