I am a creative facilitator, innovation coach and communication expert. After graduating in journalism and communication science, politics and English studies, I started my professional career as an editor at TV station SAT.1. Driven by a passion for communication and creativity, I then joined fischerAppelt, the leading German agency group in all content-related matters and integrated communication. My career developed quickly from trainee, to account director in Berlin and assistant to the executive board in Hamburg.
Based on this experience I founded public link, a PR agency specializing in market launches for international companies doing business in Germany. Amongst my clients were companies such as Expedia Inc., Steigenberger, Interface, NATRUE, Continental, E.J. Gallo Winery.
In 2015 I left public link after 12 years as owner and managing partner and am today working as a freelance creative facilitator, innovation coach and communication consultant.
Born in the very north, I am now based in Berlin where I live with my family.
I. INNOVATION & CREATIVITY FACILITATOR
The world has never been smaller, more connected and moved at a faster pace. Innovation is no longer simply nice to have – it’s becoming our new way of life – and tomorrow’s success belongs to those, who embrace it. I like to think of my work as a mission to help people, teams and companies to develop an innovative and conscious organizational culture, and create an environment of continuous and unconstrained flow of ideas.
One such example is the INL initiative, where we help schools develop and implement new educational practices and promote a genuinely diversified environment.
II. COMMUNICATION & PR SPECIALIST
My 15 years of experience in the field of communications and PR have been a journey of a lifetime. As the founder and managing partner of public link – a Berlin-based agency specializing in marketing and PR for foreign companies – I have launched over 80 products with an unique focus on the German market. As of 2015 I am working as a freelance consultant, developing strategies with a focus on integrated communication. I am also an expert in English-German copywriting.
