The Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees supervises and advises both, the Organisationsforum Wirtschaftskongress gGmbH (OfW), the organiser of the World Business Dialogue, and the OSCAR GmbH. Due to the inherent short lived nature of OfW employees the Board of Trustees brings the necessary constancy to oversee and plan long-term developments.
