Our ‘Comets’

One of our credos at SGA is to connect with and unleash capacities and capabilities for FutureFitness across generations.
We especially treasure the dedication of young professionals, who want to make a real difference and contribute to building a sustainable future.

At SGA, we call this group our ‘Comets’. For a short period in their career, Comets enter the ‘SGA solar system’ and support us in our quest. In return, we introduce them to systems thinking, educate them on FutureFitness, share with them our professional experience, and help them wherever we can in their personal development.

We are grateful for them working side-by-side with us for some time and their positive contribution to our own development, which is why – with their consent – we want to mention them by name.
