In Praxi’s WHU Alumni Career Day has been an essential part of the In Praxi event calendar for many years. Outstanding personnel consultants who work for well-known consulting firms in the field of executive search are invited to the event and they offer individual coaching sessions for In Praxi members. The aim of the sessions is first and foremost a personal assessment of the current situation, but they can also serve the goal of changing one's career currently or in the foreseeable future. At the same time, coaching conversations can lead to the development of a long-term relationship with the personnel consultant.
Next appointment: 2022 - date to be announced
In Praxi Summer Reunion
As the biggest event in the In Praxi calendar, the Summer Reunion offers a great opportunity to get together with other WHU alumni, to exchange professional or personal experiences or simply to spend time together… an interesting combination of business & fun event, every two years at different locations. The invitation to the In Praxi Summer Reunion is addressed to all In Praxi members & friends.
After a successful start in 2015 in Düsseldorf and a great continuation 2017 in Berlin, the In Praxi Summer Reunion 2019 took place in Cologne.
Save the date! The next reunion is on June 12, 2021 in Berlin.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the In Praxi Summer Reunion 2021. As we are sure you are aware, the government has ordered to refrain from public gatherings in large groups in order to contain the spread of COVID-19. As we do not have confidence that the situation improves sufficiently in the next 2 months, it is unfortunately not possible for us to hold the event as planned. We will therefore offer the 4th In Praxi Summer Reunion in summer of 2022. The event will take place in Berlin as previously planned, exact date: tba.
