Ten years ago, I started my first job in professional communication. Since then I have worked for political and economic representations, international organisations, global corporations and companies, print media and television, foundations, communication agencies, ministries, non-governmental organisations, political consultancies, cultural institutions, moderation offices and public speaking studios. In all these years, I always had the same goal: to improve how people communicate and cooperate.
Scientifically proven & practically tested
During my studies in social sciences at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich and Université de Montréal (B.A.), I initially focused on discourse theories, international cooperation and diplomacy. In my postgraduate degrees at the Higher School of Economics Moscow (Magister) and University College London (M.A.), I specialised in conflict studies, public communication, and discourse analysis. Above all, my academic research made me realise that the world depends on how we deal with each other.
After completing my studies, I initially worked as a crisis communications consultant and strategic advisor at different communications agencies in Berlin. I was then employed as a consultant for public engagement and participation, accompanying large dialogue processes in the transition to sustainable energy and mobility. Subsequently, I have also been working as a conflict moderator and consultant for public dialogue processes and organisational development. Since 2021, I provide my services independently as a facilitator, mediator, consultant and trainer for better cooperation and conflict at work.
Your intercultural partner for cooperation & conflict at work
As a facilitator and mediator, my goal is to improve communication between people, strengthen dialogue in teams and transform internal conflicts. In addition to my practical experience in various dialogue settings and conflict situations, I have completed advanced training in methods of large group facilitation, intercultural facilitation and mediation. I would like to see myself as an all-party support to lead professional cooperation in a constructive direction.
As a qualified trainer for professional communication, I share both my academic knowledge of social science and my practical learnings from my work as a dialogue facilitator and conflict mediator. What motivates me is to help professionals become a positive contribution to their working environment. The approach of my trainings, workshops and seminars is straightforward: Experience yourself what works for you.
Finally, my experience in communication and organizational consulting around the world has made me a reliable contact person and sparring partner for my clients. As a strategic consultant and intercultural coach, I believe that the most important qualities are to listen carefully and to ask the right questions. Because in the end, only your own way is the right way.
