EHI Technology Days 2019

The EHI Technology Days have been offering a glimpse into the future of trade every year for over 15 years. The IT-Personalberatung, represented by its managing director Manfred Wenzel, is a welcome, regular participant in this event, as many customers in IT retail rely on the services offered by the IT-Personalberatung.


Mr. Wenzel always considers the EHI Technology Days a worthwhile event, not only because IT retail is like “one big family”. It is also worthwhile because it is always a pleasure to meet long-standing, cherished, business partners and to establish new, interesting contacts with decision-makers in trade. Last but not least, it is also worthwhile to stay on top of the current technologies and trends in trade.

Stuttgart Knowledge Forum 2019

The Stuttgart Knowledge Forum is an event we at the IT-Personalberatung – as Top 100 Entrepreneurs chosen by Speakers Excellence – have been attending for many years and one which we are always looking forward to with great anticipation.

In the air, you have to rely on yourself and your team and sometimes, unfortunately, highly critical situations arise that require decisiveness.

Support for the outpatient Mainz children and young people Hospice (December 2017)

Christmas provides a welcome opportunity to help people in need. For our client companies, this has become a holiday tradition.


The care provided by the Mainz Hospice Company has touched us deeply. It offers outpatient palliative and hospice counseling to those facing the challenges of serious illness and the end of life.


This is why this year we took a quote by Leo Tolstoy to heart: "Remember that there is only one important time and that is now".


We want to help make the lives of children whose time is running out, and of their families, a bit easier and more comfortable.


For this reason, we made a generous donation to the outpatient child and youth hospice service run by the Mainz Hospice Association Christophorus e.V.

EuroShop – The World’s No. 1 Retail Trade Fair

The IT-Personalberatung is focused on information technology and high-tech topics. However, most consultants choose to specialize in additional sectors or areas of technology. Viktoria Roenick and Manfred Wenzel, for example, specialize in IT in retail and logistics. Visiting the EuroShop trade fair is therefore a "must" for Ms. Roenick and Mr. Wenzel to keep track of the latest technological developments, to recognize trends, to strengthen our customer network and to gain the special and valuable access to the IT retail candidate market.

Support for the “Förderkreis krebskranke Kinder Stuttgart e.V.”

As we were able to witness first hand how our donation has helped ease the burden of children with cancer and their families in need last year, we decided to make another donation this year to the "Förderkreis krebskranke Kinder Stuttgart e.V.", putting the money we would have spent on Christmas gifts for our clients and partners towards a good cause.


The "Förderkreis krebskranke Kinder Stuttgart e.V." supports children and their parents in need during their treatment and therapy. The project "Blaues Haus" offers families and their sick children a temporal home away from home. Affected families can stay there during their child's inpatient treatment, find some rest and, most importantly, be very near to their children as the "Blaue Haus" is located in the immediate vicinity of the new Olgahospital children's clinic.
