Raised in several countries, I have grown up to become highly adaptable, inherently curious, and open-minded. Indeed, I thrive on change. This core personality trait, combined with an insatiable desire to learn and a keenness to experience new things, has guided my career path whether selecting leading positions within global organizations or when setting up and managing new companies myself. My clients value that I am not intimidated by uncertainty, something they can leverage when tackling their own change challenges. I work with clients individually or with teams on improving leadership skills from communication, guiding conversations, improving emotional and interpersonal skills, transitioning to new roles / team settings as well as managing change and resilience.
My coaching certification is from Meyler Campbell (London), which is accredited with the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC) and has course recognition from the Association for Coaching. I have also completed Nancy Kline’s Thinking Partnership Programme, trained by Nancy Kline herself. I have trained with the Strozzi Institute in “Embodied Leadership” and am qualified for Hogan Assessment. I am an affiliate member of the Institute of Coaching Professional Association of Coaching (ICPA), at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate and a member of the Association of Coaching.
Having held various leadership positions in finance, media and manufacturing in Europe and the US, I have been running my own consultancy business advising and coaching leaders, founders and their teams around transformations for the past 15 years with a focus on the people factor. I deliver value because I can see the full picture and really connect economic and human realities centring on communication, motivation, and change. I am also an active member of Alphazirkel, a private, non-profit network for family businesses, where my focus is on digital transformation, diversity & inclusion and connecting family businesses with VCs, private equity, innovations, and start-ups.
I offer pro-bono coaching to up and coming senior researchers at Cancer Research UK, supporting them in their leadership development, and am also a mentor for “Start Up Teens”, a German initiative to support teenagers and young adults in their endeavors to develop and bring to market innovative ideas.
I hold an LLB (Honours) in European Law from University of Warwick (UK) and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Birmingham Business School (UK).
I live in Munich, working internationally. I coach in English and German but can also converse in Dutch, French; I am currently improving my Italian. My biggest passions are spending time on my sailboat, in nature and going on new adventures.
