About myself

„It matters not only WHAT is said, but HOW it is said!“


Working method and approach

  • Moderation, training and coaching can be highly professional without being bone-dry and boring at the same time! I aspire to use my human touch, lots of humour and flexibility in my approach in order to motivate and to initiate perception processes. Humour is a key element of successful moderation especially when handling complex and difficult projects.
  • It is very important to me in my coaching work to support and develop the ability to act responsibly and take initiative. Based on my experience and my qualifications, I offer practical and process-oriented trainings, customized to individual requirements and quickly achieving results.
