Export Seminar 2019 report

Here at Schein, we had the opportunity to welcome numerous ladies and gentlemen from all over the world to our location in Remscheid for the sixth time.
This year’s Export Seminar was once again a complete success, and with 40 attendees from 12 countries.
The wide range of speakers made the two-day programme an educational and entertaining event. After the champagne reception and welcome address, we gave all the attendees a tour of the facility, allowing us to provide an insight into the manufacturing of our products. Those who wanted to become more familiar with the product portfolio then had the opportunity to gain information about everything from LucRo shoes to measurement technology and orthopaedic foot supports.

Following that successful start, the programme got underway. Schein had the great honour of welcoming Kirsten Götz-Neumann as speaker on the first day. As an expert in the field of gait analysis, Ms Götz-Neumann presented her ‘Gehen Verstehen’ concept, revolutionising and expanding the way of thinking of many of the attendees with regard to the subject of gait analysis in the process.
To round out the first day, all attendees and speakers enjoyed excellent evening entertainment! A delicious banquet was served at Burg Castle in Solingen, together with a performance by the ‘Der Schwartenhalss’ group featuring jugglers, music and magic. The second day was filled with interesting talks on a wide variety of subjects.
Robert Haimerl got things underway with an insight into foot care, featuring both theoretical and practical tips and tricks on everything from insoles to exercises. The attendees also got involved and realised just what the human foot can do when they tried to write their name with their feet – an astonishing experience.
That was followed by an excursion into the world of medicine. We were honoured to host Dr Dirk Schraeder, who provided us with an interesting talk on the increasingly important topic of diabetes.
The real-life example cases opened the eyes of many, making them more aware of the subject of ‘early treatment of diabetic foot’.

The two days were rounded off by the company presentation from Jan Schutrups. He and his independent Dutch company have become very well known beyond the country’s borders. He has shown that an eye for detail and occasional courage to do something unusual can be the key to success and has inspired others with that good example.

As a company, we at Schein are very pleased that lots of customers made the long journey to visit us in Bergisches Land. Due to the attendance of many interested customers, we will continue this series of seminars in English.
