Personal note:

Let's make elephants fly!
Are you looking for a keynote speaker to pep up your organisation?
Would you like to know how to make effective use of agile practices?
Then you have come to the right place!
When I started to get interested in the development of large organisations, one colleague looked at me sympathetically and said: "Patricia, elephants can‘t fly." That is not true! With dedication, enthusiasm and the right tools you are able to make them fly ...
Let's get started!
Best regards, Patricia


Patricia Adam - professor of International Management and expert for the development of people and management systems.

For more than 25 years I have been holding lectures and seminars in German and English. After studying national economics, I worked in various positions at Dresdner Bank AG for ten years, starting in 1994. During that time, I gained practical experience in e.g. credit risk management, quality management, in-house consulting and internal audit. In 2001, I earned my extra-occupational doctorate. Out of the central integration office of Allianz AG in Munich, I accompanied one of the biggest mergers in the German financial industry. Today, I continue to work as an auditor and assessor around the world to assess organisations and their management systems. My latest publications are dealing with agility in management systems, namely the integration of agile practices and processes in a certified ISO 9001 quality management system. The textbook "Managing Internationalisation", published in 2015, guides practitioners and students through the internationalisation process from a management perspective and specifically addresses how to deal with foreign cultures. The important thing to me as a keynote speaker is to inspire passion and energy for organisational and personal development.
