I would describe my role as a challenging facilitator that keeps the balance between disruptive thinking and logic constraints, remaining strictly focused, positive and humorous.

I'm looking back at over seven succesful years at a top ten IT Service Provider in Germany with over 1 billion in revenue. 

You may wonder, but what really shaped my perception and stlye of being innovative was working on people-centric projects like being responsible for Demografic Change Management.


This is the very resource where innovation evolves: People.


So when you've got the right tools, it's all about leveraging and bringing precious insights together. Having an interdisciplinary skillset really helps me to speak one language with Analysts, Software Developers, Business Partners and maybe sometimes even Work Council Members.
