Our foundations

Our philosophy

Our team at Sommer Foundation has been a Top-Service-Provider for Dynamic Event, Dynamic Incentive, Coaching, Training and Seminars. During this time, we also constantly faced up to our own optimization processes and take it for granted that further training and further development should always be provided in all areas of supply. We love to do research, design new concepts and expand existing ones. In doing so, we always take different perspectives in order to pass on these concepts optimally adapted to the customer.

Our many years of success are due, among other things, to the fact that we are constantly evolving and flexible in the face of holistic change processes. Growing means nothing more than constantly and gratefully confronting the processes that are in place for the continuous optimization of the company – and this at all levels.

What we "teach" also applies to ourselves.

How it started

Like any company, the Sommer Foundation-EventCoaching GmbH & Co. KG their own story.

Initially, the company enjoyed its successes separately in the form of two sole proprietorship companies. On the one hand under the name: "MaCoMo Institut GBR", an expert platform for special team building, training and further education as well as process-dynamic coachings, seminars & trainings.  On the other hand under the name: "Jens Richter Trainings", a platform of outdoor trainings, events and incentives linked to a climbing school.

„Richter & Sommer Trainings and Eventmanagement GmbH & Co. KG“ was eventually created after a successful merger of the two individual companies. This was the perfect symbiosis for a long, powerful time. In this time frame, Richter & Sommer Trainings has continued to pursue a determined, always forward-looking successful path. We would like to thank customers who have been loyal for decades, a big inquiry and a very positive feedback culture.

What's next

We have a large number of high-quality location and hotel partners and have committed partners in a wide range of fields. This is the basis for powerful synergies. Our large, highly professional expert pool consists of trained psychologists, graduate social pedagogues, business administration experts, specialist trainers (e.g. sales, organizational consulting, change management, event management), sports trainers, climbing experts and a highly committed IT department. These experts implement our adventurous ideas in a revolutionary way and are thus a guarantee for extraordinary concepts.

This foundation remains. Only the name of our company changed in 2016, after the departure of Mr. Jens Richter, into „Sommer Foundation and EventCoaching GmbH & Co. KG“.

Sommer Foundation has gone through several targeted stages of development and has grown strongly from this. Sommer Foundation has earned an outstanding reputation through the continuous development process.

Aus Richter & Sommer Trainings wurde die Sommer Foundation – EventCoaching GmbH & Co. KG
