Often training and consulting companies are doing a huge amount of upfront analysis, generate complex and theoretical models and suggest solutions on that basis. They need to utilize their extensive workforce.

We are approaching it based on understanding, practical insights, experience, empathy and pragmatic solutions focussing on excellent dialogue to partner with you and supporting you until successful implementation of the solution.

Extensive professional expertise coupled with operational experience helps us to understand fast key items which are relevant to work successfully together such as your company culture, organizational structures, leadership capabilities, processes, language and much more.

We are not just generating ideas and proposals but also offer solutions which have passed the practical tests.

Our aim is to partner with you in the journey of change to master the future challenges.

How my colleagues are describing me:

Highly innovative, strategic thinker with excellent implementation capabilities, solutions oriented, driving transformation and sustainable change in a cooperative and teaming oriented way, an inspirational global people leader and great communicator.


My specific passion is working with and developing people globally – preferably in challenging transformation projects.


I’m leveraging the experience of 20 years in leadership roles for my consulting work. This enables good discussions at the right decision making levels. Next to my strategic and analytical capabilities the experience in dealing with practical operational challenges in the execution of projects and implementation of decisions knowing about the dependencies in an organisation helps to develop the right solutions together with the clients. We define the optimal outcome, challenge the boundaries and achieve the maximum within the environment. This leads to a successful implementation and execution.


Here some examples of transformation projects from the last few years:

  • design, development and implementation of a completely new global organisation for HR Services for 130.000 employees in 52 countries, transformation und implementation of global processes and technology, setting up and leading more than 600 employees in 23 countries
  • design and reorganisation of pension plans transfering all employees from defined benefit plans to cash balance plans
  • leading the reorganisation of an entire organisation along the the value chain setting up a new structure of 18 legal entities for R&D, Sales, Services and Infrastructure including transfer of more than 8000 employees
