I grew up in London (UK) then moved on to Germany.

My passion is all about innovation, design, gadgets, outdoor sports, cars, motorbikes, movies and photography.

Went from Designer to Project Manager and Business Developer. Later became Head of IT Learning and Gear taking care of tech employer branding, cultural development, customer centricity and creating a true learning environment.

Agile at Scale Product Owner for Communications & Office Concept were next steps leading to my present role Lead for IT Learning and Gear as well as Live Communications & Engagement (corporate communications) right now.

I have a proven track record in international communication, learning, marketing, project management, enterprise collaboration and design. For more than 22 years I have been working with an agile mindset as an internal and external consultant inside international business networks.

What counts for me the most? Get the right people, cultural mindset and tools together and you can speed-up anything.

TecBrand, TecCulture, TecLearning and always the “extra mile”
I set up the framework and roadmap for our TecBrand and support all Teams and simply get things done.

I am changing our reputation both internally and externally giving the ista “TecCrew” a visibility, standing and voice.
Attracting top (IT-)talents and keeping them committed and happy is what we call “people first”.

Creating a true (learning) culture people want to work in – we call “pionista”

Change anyone?
Let´s be honest: the good, the bad and the ugly - change is something nobody is waiting or wishing for - right? At least that holds true for most of my personal experience in past 20-something years in business.

Being a Product Owner for Communication & Office Concept in an Agile@Scale program showed me there is hope. Hope for change itself. What it needs is a foundation of trust, believe and transparency of what is ahead of you. It is like taking care of a relation- or friendship: listening and accepting different thoughts and perspectives. Listening meaning understanding not just responding.

All in all its like climbing a mountain – the summit is in reach - if your team is highly dedicated, appreciated and well prepared for their journey.
