Lutz Hempel

Making meetings productive is the core of Lutz Hempel’s consultancy work. With openness, tact, a talent for networking and finding solutions, he dedicates himself to sustainable solutions and understanding within his client base. As a recently graduated culture manager with an artistic-creative background, he moved into the field of consultancy in 2000 with feasibility and profitability analyses for cultural event businesses. Over the years, he has added to this diverse change projects across the entire public cultural sector as well as the cultural and creative industry. It was encountering his double bass-playing tutor while studying for an executive MBA at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow) a few years back that prompted him to turn towards organizational development, more specifically cultural development with artistic-creative concepts. Through the medium of his firm Groovin‘ Organization, Lutz Hempel inspires, unites and moves managers and teams, primarily in the private sector.
