about me

I enjoy creative presentations, perspectives outside the box and when consultations develop such vigour that you can literally see the bulb switching on overhead. With schainundkuchenbrandt I contribute my expertise to the development of training concepts and methods. Furthermore, I accompany our clients in the context of solution-oriented individual consultations involving topics such as career development, identifying and activating individual resources, and professional perspectives outside the academic system.
