Language is not only the vehicle of thought; it is the great and efficient instrument in thinking.

What I am passionate about
What a wonderful place the world would be if everyone got the opportunities and chances they deserved. Today many good deals go unnoticed and so many promising ideas gather dust on the shelves. To help people get the desired attention and to ensure ideas are brought into the spotlight and given the chance to shine, I regularly place myself in my clients’ shoes looking at the situation from their perspective. I ask questions, give feedback and responses, offer solution scenarios and inspiration and help clients to broaden their own perspectives. And because when you’re selling your ideas, you are pretty much selling yourself – your charisma, your personality and who you are as a person – I put special emphasis on communication and public speaking skills, body language and tone of voice. I incorporate into my work my own experiences as an engineer, manager, and consultant as well as my professional, psychological and methodological knowledge of training and education. My life is centered in Berlin but I spend part of the year traveling around the world. My camera is always with me. Other things that I like to think about and you’d like to know? — I write blog posts about these things, so be sure to check that out! There’s a lot to read, so accept my apologies if you don’t manage to read the morning paper as well!
