I am a passionate, optimistic and empowering Coach, Intercultural Trainer & Consultant with solid international experience.
I help companies, organisations, teams, managers, expatriates and private individuals embrace change, value diversity, develop soft skills and intercultural intelligence through cross-culture trainings, cultural awareness trainings, expatriation trainings, intercultural coaching, group coaching, business coaching & team development in international contexts. My approach is personalised, interactive, solution-oriented and action-oriented.
I worked for more than 10 years within international companies (Titelbild/Ericsson, Patagonia) in France and Germany. I have a wide range of work experience in training, translation/subtitling, customer service, communication, web, PR & marketing, and also gained solid HR experience in hiring, training and tutoring employees. I managed transnational projects & events and coordinated multinational and virtual teams from Europe and the US. My personal experience of change and cultural misunderstandings within a wide range of industries (tourism, media & language services, outdoor clothing & gear) helped shape my realistic and hands-on approach that takes into account both economic and emotional factors. I know what is at stake.
I studied languages, translation and international relations in Grenoble (France) and Edinburgh (UK), and hold certificates in Intercultural Coaching and Intercultural Training from the University of Jena, Germany/ interculture.de, a training institute recognised by the European Coaching Association (ECA).
I am a German native who was born in a country that does not exist anymore, the German Democratic Republic. My socialisation in two distinct political and socio-economical worlds forged and broadened my open-mindedness, my interest for languages, and my passion for diversity and people.
I constantly work to develop my potential through ongoing training and independent learning. I am an active member of several professional associations. I regularly exchange with my peers and rely on a network of trusted partners.
