I have worked closely with many clients around the world, both as an active practitioner, programme director and lead coach of hundreds of global workshop events with thousands of participants over a 17 year long period – continually developing a portfolio of customised skill development programmes with a particular focus on individuals with a highly scientific or technical “mindset” and who wish to enhance and extend their professional skill-set for career and personal success in a global, multi-cultural, gender & diversity sensitive work environment.
During this time, I have lived and worked in many countries, an experience which also ensures cross-cultural competency is an important component of my workshops and programmes.
As a native English speaker, I also work closely with non-native speaking programme participants to polish and refine their fluency to the highest level of scientific, technical, or business English.
I am now based as lead coach at my alpine executive facilities near Munich, Germany, and am also available as a freelance resource to offer clients custom niche skill development solutions, integrated with in-house programmes or “stand alone” initiatives.
From summer 2015, I will be conducting regular coaching programmes, workshops and “1-on-1” sessions for clients Germany-wide including the “cluster” of research sites located around Munich, Tübingen, Heidelberg, Göttingen, Hamburg, Bonn, Berlin and Dresden.
