What I know
ASIA, NORTH AFRICA, EUROPE
With long standing project experience and contacts in Asia and North Africa, I am a European by conviction.
My passion is to link these experiences and to create new connections between them.
Politics, economics, society, culture and cultures, I approach them from a holistic point of view.
For more than 20 years, I have been working on international business issues.
Corporate strategies for market entry and macro-economic scenarios are both of interest to me.
From scratch, I consider general frameworks and social impacts of business activities.
What skills does one need to succeed in business and one’s personal life and to be a happy person?
How can one discover and develop talents? And tis beyont just technical skills. Communication skills, team spirit and a hands-on approach in projets are the key to success and it pays off to invest in them at any level of your team.
This is where I come from.
For more than 20 years this background has been my inspiration when working on different subjects and my motivation to develop new ideas and make more discoveries.
