About me

“Visiting over 45 countries, living and working on several continents and interacting with fascinating cultures has had a deep impact in my life.”

#Passion

For what I do.

With sensitivity, an appreciative attitude, visionary power and strong communication skills, I have supported people and organisations for over 20 years in a wide variety of roles: as an expert, coach, consultant and leader. I have lived on several continents and worked with a wide variety of cultures. Finding out what drives people, in which environments they thrive and which relationships allow them to flourish has motivated me to turn my passion into my profession.

My career has taken me through owner-managed and medium-sized companies, marketing agencies and large corporations all within the electronics and electrical engineering industry. In the process, I have gained experience in classic, agile and “hybrid” corporate cultures and ways of working.

My professional focus so far:

  • Leadership, organisational and cultural development as well as the introduction of agile working methods
  • HR Strategy & Transformation: supporting change processes, digital transformation and cultural change
  • Business communication, HR communication, employer branding, corporate social responsibility
  • Classic and digital marketing & advertising – including retail, wholesale and OEM marketing

 

So far, it has been an exciting journey, allowing me to continually experiment with new things and – of course – at times, I failed miserably. However, this makes me fortunate since failing and learning about my own fears and vulnerabilities was the only way I could learn & grow!

With Enthusiasm in Both Worlds: Family & Business

Besides my professional passion, I am a proud mother of a wonderful daughter who inspires me anew every day to actively shape my and our future and to spend our lives doing what we truly love! She also taught me that learning with ease brings the most joy.

That’s right, I am passionate about both worlds – my family and my job! With the perfect balance? No, there is certainly no such thing as a ‘perfect balance’! Compromises are inevitable along the way and I have certainly learned that. But it is about HOW we get to these compromises, setting the right limits, being honest with oneself… and that can reduce the tension between family & work. Hence, as an honest and empathetic sparring partner, I am also very passionate about coaching & supporting female leaders or professionals in their quest to develop their own authentic style in business.
