The PAWLIK Congress

Exclusive Event for Decision Makers

The PAWLIK Congress is the networking event in northern Germany for entrepreneurs, managing directors and managers. The event offers insights regarding the year’s main theme as well as how personalities from politics, business, science, sports and culture personally view the subject matter. Since 2002, we have set a new theme each year dealing with personality traits, leadership and achieving challenging goals. Prominent speakers such as Edward Snowden, Reinhold Messner, Alena Buyx and Christian Lindner speak to around 250 participants at the event.

The Theme of the 22nd PAWLIK Congress

What if our future can no longer be planned? If we no longer know what our professional or private goals look like in the medium term, let alone how they can be achieved? If people no longer know what they can work toward and hope for? A feeling of profound uncertainty is spreading in the face of the climate-induced and digitalization-driven transformation of economies and societies. Without clear prospects, motivation is being crippled and people are getting tired. Together with our top-class speakers, we will delve deeper into the theme “PROACTIVE – SHAPING THE FUTURE” and discuss sources of power for the future and how everyone and their teams can tap into them.

Theme of the 23rd PAWLIK Congress

Sickness leave rates are at an all-time high, stress levels are rising, one in three people feel too weak to do their daily work and employee loyalty has fallen to a new record low. While there is a shortage of skilled workers, strikes are increasing and working hours are being cut back more and more. This is the world of work in Germany today. What now? How can we find ways to move forward and finally climb our way out of this slump, a downtrend that is very difficult for an economic powerhouse like Germany to accept. The theme of this year’s event is “NOW WHAT? WAYS FORWARD”. Join us and our high-caliber speakers to discuss how we can shape the way we work in the future.

The Location

The PAWLIK Congress traditionally takes place in Hamburg’s Gastwerk Hotel. The old brick walls, steel elements and spacious halls in the former gasworks in Hamburg’s Altona district provide an atmospheric backdrop for the event. We value the inspiring setting for the speeches and personal discussions as much as the great cuisine. The exclusive Congress Eve Event will also take place at the Gastwerk Hotel.

Livestream by PINKTUM 2023

We want to continue to grow together with you. Our partner and subsidiary PINKTUM, a leading company for digital personnel development, broadcasted the PAWLIK Congress as a digital event. It was possible to participate in the exclusive event worldwide via a high-quality livestream. Additionally, PINKTUM presented a customized e-training and a study on the congress theme “PROACTIVE – SHAPING THE FUTURE” as part of the event.

The Journal

In our journal, we present exclusive interviews our speakers gave in addition to their presentations. In the interviews, we ask questions and get to the bottom of the current theme. The journal also includes photos from the event and the Congress Eve Event to remind you of two special days.

Our Speakers in 2024

We invited personalities from different walks of life to capture a wide range of thoughts and experiences around the theme. This year’s motto “NOW WHAT? WAYS FORWARD” will be addressed by biathlete Magdalena Neuner and Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra, among others. The keynote address will be given by presenter Joachim Pawlik. Journalist and TV presenter Dunja Hayali will host the two-day event.
