I studied international business management with languages in Duesseldorf, Germany, and Edinburgh, Scotland. During those first years, I also worked as a trainee in France, the US, Hong Kong, and Indonesia.
I‘ve worked in marketing for over twenty years in several companies from different sectors and in different sizes … from really small (less than fifteen people) to an international conglomerate, moving from the West of Germany to the North and the East. I worked as a product manager, in international brand communication, in online marketing, and was finally responsible for a marketing team of ten people in France and Germany.

- author – published author in the US and in Germany (happybooks.de)
I live in Meissen, Saxony, but I‘m completely independent and love to work internationally – be it remote or (for special projects) in other cities around the globe.
I have a great respect for entrepreneurs who follow their dream with courage and incredible personal dedication. As nobody can be an expert in every field, and as there‘s never enough time for all the tasks one should do, entrepreneurs have to decide which task to tackle by themselves and which they should give away.
This is exactly where I come in as your marketing consultant: I want to help companies to become more visible – in a way that‘s clearly defined and shows quick results.
My work doesn‘t stop once the concept is done. Instead, I will stay at your side and help until the task is finished. It‘s marketing for people.
What I hate
bombastic words, braggadocio, Labskaus (that‘s a dish from the North of Germany with beetroot and herring)
What I love
Moving projects forward, exploring new horizons, honesty, hot chocolate lava cake
Where to find me
I‘m a member of the BVMW (the German Association for Small and Medium-sized Businesses), the Wirtschaftsfrauen Sachsen (business women Saxony). I’m a certified consultant with the BAFA (Federal Office of Economics and Export Control), so I can offer consulting that’s subsidized by the state. This is particularly interesting for small German companies. On top of that, I teach marketing at the chamber of commerce (adult training).
You can book me for trainings (marketing / story telling / …) or readings. Just call and fix a date!
