„It’s the soft skills that create the hard facts!“

About Me

For over 20 years, I have worked with internationally renowned leaders like US Presidents, ECB President Christine Lagarde and leading German politicians in Asia, Middle East and Europe. In these international settings, I have experienced first-hand how easily misunderstandings and discords occur, resulting in a lot of wasted opportunities. For my clients, I customize innovative strategies to facilitate acquisitions and negotiations worldwide. 

I have been giving lectures and seminars in politics, media and business for over 15 years. In 2015 my book “Don't let me be misunderstood” was published by Random House Publishing House.  As a keynote speaker I work for Athenas and the London Speaker Bureau and I teach communications as a guest lecturer at the Politecnico Di Milano University (Italy).
