Words create reality. Communication is our instrument for understanding. That is why it is important that this instrument is always properly tuned.

Networking is my profession and dealing with language my passion. Since 2008 I have been the General Manager of the Hessen Film and Media Academy (hFMA), a network of 13 Hessian universities. I am a certified negotiator of the Schranner Institute in Zurich, and an active speaker in the Professional Speakers Club Frankfurt. Working in communicative areas involving pressure is part of my everyday life.

As a member of the European Women’s Management Development Network (EWMD) and of the network of the Digital Media Women, I work on strengthening the position of women in business.

As a trained artist, I am passionate in my desire to pass on knowledge and experience to those willing to learn. For many years I worked in field of event management for film festivals such as the Berlinale and Filmfest Hamburg. For some years I was co-owner of a Hong Kong-based picture agency.

From my practical experience of 20 years of cultural and edcuational management I have compiled the most effective communication tools. This is content is what I impart in my teaching at universities, companies and cultural institutions. It considers how one can appropriately apply one’s own communication tools in different communication situations such as in negotiations, presentations, in networking and in project management.

All my seminars and workshops are rooted in experience and practice.

Continuing learning is the call of our times: Learning, unlearning and relearning is the way to discover and develop our own enormous potential. It’s fun to activate and develop! I am, therefore, a fan of cultural growth towards what the neurobiologist Gerald Hüther calls a “potential-development society”.
