I am a change enthusiast who focuses on empowering leaders to tap into the full potential of their teams. Whether in Design Sprint, with OKR, Liberating Structures or with Lego® Serious Play® - facilitating teams to think together, to come up with new insights, a shared understanding or a new plan is a fascinating performance driver in our increasingly complex (working) world.

After years in corporate (leadership) roles, I now work as a facilitator, strategist, lecturer, and communications consultant - with a very diverse portfolio of projects and clients: From start-up to corporate.

However, all my projects always have two things in common: they actively drive positive change, and they only work when the collective intelligence of the team is harnessed.

So, let's CO_future together!

Need more background information about me? Here you go:

I am a seasoned strategist and facilitator with a proven track record of successfully working with companies across industries to leverage and transform new opportunities. Experienced in business strategy, facilitation, digital marketing, corporate development, and leveraging the power of education to create change.

I graduated from the University of St. Gallen (MA HSG) and the Swiss School of Journalism (MAZ, Lucerne) with an additional professional degree in Business Education from the University of St. Gallen. But more importantly, I am an enthusiast for learning new things every day - formally and not so formally.

Would you like to see the benefits that sparring could have on your business strategy and innovation teams? Or are you looking for an inspiring workshop, training, or someone to speak at your event about the power of change and crowd intelligence?
