Leadership, both strategically and operationally, is one of my key advisory focuses. This is proven by successful consulting concerning employee-development concepts, transformation processes, innovative HR features, negotiations with different stakeholders, for example workers’ councils and unions.

I help to make it happen, to make a difference that matters!
