I often get asked ‘Why do you do what you do? Why coaching and developing people?’ The answer is easy: I care! And I am curious. But I am also really passionate about business.
From a young age on I was curious about people on a deep level. What they were thinking, feeling. Where their families come from and what conversations they have around the dinner table. That care and curiosity is how I have built deep rooted relationships around the world.
Born near Cologne in Germany and educated in Business, English and French, I have lived and worked in 6 different countries and have spent most of my last 17 years in New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan.
No matter which industry I worked in, from hospitality to real estate and education, working with people and helping my teams to kick ass and be the best they can excites me.
And helping the business to grow, operationally as well as in business development always has been front and centre of what I do. The services industries I’ve worked in gave me substantial exposure to business leaders from all around the world and I found myself asking again: ‘Where are you from? Why do you do what you do? What conversations do you have around the board table and dinner table?’
In 2013 I decided that coaching teams and leaders is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I am passionate about helping people to transform business.
I love what I do and I am exceptional at it. It’s time to spread my wings and help people realise their potential, one leader at a time.
