Leadership with Impact.
Agility meets Regeneration
Building bridges between worlds
Becoming a creative professional with a proven track record in the field of advertising gave me a solid foundation in being a) client centered b) creative solution oriented and c) result and impact driven. From my training years at Grey Advertisement to growing one of the first digital full-service start-up agencies within Germany – I had the pleasure to be in service for brands such as Stinnes BauMarkt, Fuji and Dorint to manage and strategies national campaigns, build on market research, collaborated with creatives in copy-writing, design and content development and became a highly effective project coordinator and client relationship manager.
My dynamic and forward-thinking professional career continued in the telecommunications industry. Possessing a strong curiosity of emerging technologies and market trends, it was fascinating to thrive in such a fast-paced environment and excel at driving growth first in leading national trade marketing campaigns and later on building the internal communications division, touching executive development and business innovation and transformation. With a proven track record in delivering reliable solutions and enhancing employee and customer experiences with my teams, I was poised to contribute as a leader the continued growth and success journey of E-Plus from start-up towards expansion and crucial market player.
From corporate manager to entrepreneurial professional my successful career trajectory continued starting my own boutique consulting & coaching business in the US, focusing on a ‘Conscious Business’ approach, supporting corporations, leaders and start-ups to pivot in constant times of change based on a triple button line targeted for people, planet and profit. The collaboration of a wider ecosystem and strategic partnerships such as with the Institute for Applied Creativity brought enhanced efficiency, agility and global conceptualized solutions as well as sustainable and cutting-edge working & leadership models to my clients in steering business for the greater good - with a human-centered approach.
From a creative, innovative and human centered consultant and coach my work and personal life took a turn when I became a mom late in life and the biggest question we often ask: ‘WHY’ became not a cognitive answer but a settled intrinsic motivation and inner igniter to steer my work towards a healthy future for all and next generations. The impact leaders and their entities can excel the well-being of society or in contrary also deplete our resources. Today my work guides organizations and their leaders towards embracing purpose-driven strategies that align with ecological and societal well-being and builds bridges between an agile mindset and regenerative action With a focus on fostering diversity & inclusion, sustainability, and social responsibility, I am dedicated to empowering leaders to thrive while creating a regenerative future.
Project Highlights of the last years
Key-Note @ 3M 'The Never Normal'
When the pandemic hit, companies and professionals were forced to embrace to work from home. A new reality started. In my key-note I invited the mindset and practices of evolution. Instead of 'New Normal' it is time for a 'NeverNormal' perspective. Change can be a threat or an opportunity. And the outcome will be determent by our perspective and attitude.

When the first co-working space of Düsseldorf was forced to leave their 'garage', it was a blessing that a real estate investor had a vision to create the first full ecosystem for entrepreneurship in the region.
