About me

I like creative presentations, looking beyond the horizon, and when consultations create so much momentum that you can literally see that ‘light bulb moment’ arising. At schainundkuchenbrandt, I use my expertise to develop our training concepts and methods. In addition, I support our clients in the context of solution-oriented individual consultations on topics such as career development, the development of individual resources and career prospects outside the academic system.
