29 years I am working in the PR/communications industry, took over the responsibilities of an entrepreneur in 2009, and stand for professional consultancy at eye level. Hands-on work and up-tempo, flexibility and creativity are my credo. To me loyalty and discretion are fundamental for any collaboration.
Prior to run my own business I have gained experiences while working at NOKIA, Weber Shandwick and ABN Amro. Until today I could develop and deepen my treasure trove of experience in b2b-/b2c-communications, in marketing, and in internal communications in the industry sectors automotive, smart living & mobility, steel, logistics, finance & law, telecommunications & IT, consumer electronics, medical science, energy economics as well as fashion, culture and design.
My career and work life is driven by continuous learning, sustainable action and fundamental values – be it in managing people, dealing with cultures and industries or handling situations. Since taking over the responsibilities as a senior manager to run international teams and as a management consultant, I learned and walk the talk that communications is no one-way street. Quite the contrary: Dialogue connects. Dialogue unfolds potential. Dialogue shows directions.
