„Intercultural Perspectives“ …

...guides organisations and teams in their process of learning and development.


As a trainer...

... I create inspirational and safe learning spaces for teams and individuals. 

As a consultant...

... I develop diversity concepts and (virtual & blended) learning environments.

As a coach...

... I support individuals and teams in their developmental and change processes.


My Approach

I create learning environments in which the experiences of the participants are central. Structured reflection of the participants' own practices enhances this experience-based learning. To ensure sustained learning, I combine the reflection of personal experience with theory-driven analysis. By building a bridge between theory and practice I encourage the participants to integrate their knowledge into their daily life.

In the course of my work, I build on my own intercultural experience. I have lived in different African countries (Uganda, Eritrea, Burkina Faso) with my family for almost ten years. In this time, I have researched how the ways in which different people collaborate are affected by culture.

My Course of Education

I am a strong believer in lifelong learning. After my studies at the Institute for Comparative Education at the University of Innsbruck, I completed my dissertation. In my dissertation I examined how people experience cultural diversity and under which conditions intercultural experiences lead to the development of intercultural competencies. My training as a coach and my specialisation in team-coaching have enhanced my professional profile- extended by a training as group worker (ÖAGG) and as Imago Professional Facilitator (IPF). I furthered my knowledge through trainings in "Art of Hosting", "Storytelling", "Graphic Facilitation".
