About me

I grew up with two cultural influences, since I am half German and half Italian. I always wanted to work with people from different cultural backgrounds that is why I studied languages and economics. After that I worked as Head of the Communication Team for a big international IT Service Provider for several years.

I also spent many years abroad, first in the Netherlands and later on in the UK. This was a very exciting time for me and my family and taught me a lot about cultural differences in the way people live and work together. During that time I decided to do some further studies in Organizational Psychology and Human Resource Management at the University of London.

Since 2008 I am working as a facilitator for a variety of soft skills and ,above all, intercultural competence. As a well-rounded facilitator I have had the opportunity to work with diverse groups - from students to international managers. Having a true passion for cultural issues, I am adept at passing this on to the participants of my seminars.
