Who is Bert Overlack ?
Bert is a personal coach and trusted advisor to entrepreneurs, owners and executives of family run businesses. He is also an author and keynote speaker and member of several supervisory boards.
After having completed his MBA at WHU Koblenz in 1993 he has worked as a management consultant before joining his family business in 1997. Bert had been responsible for the international business development in Asia, Middle East and Africa while at the same time establishing two joint-venture production units in Ukraine and Czech Republic. In 2004 he succeeded his parents as CEO of then Overlack Holding GmbH. In 2007 he celebrated with his more than 350 employees the best year ever in the history of the company. 12 month later his markets dropped by 50% and in 2011 he had to file for insolvency.
Today he draws from his vast experience of great successes and deep failures as a coach, consultant or sparring partner to his clients. Success and failure are two sides of the same coin. Noticing, that his clients rarely discuss their successes with him but rather challenges, pitfalls and failures, he decided to write a book about the experience of failing and to speak about this topic as a contribution to de-stigmatize failure.

Success and failure are two side of the same coin.Drawing my own personal experience of failure I reflect on the reasons of failure, how we can actually learn from failure and what kind of learnings we can take away from such an experience on an individual, corporate and society level.
