What my cooperation partners say about me:

What makes working with Margret Steixner so enjoyable is her way of presenting in-depth contents with a unique ease. This sets free enormous amounts of energy which can immediately be used for further work- I discover this again and again when working with her in a team, and can see it in her participants on different occasions. No matter if theory or practical exercise- she presents the contents with surety, remains open to new methods and engages in dialogue with her audience. In this, she is benefitted by her multilayered communicative experience gained from various professional roles, in various cultural contexts. It is clear that she thoroughly understands complex systems. I am already looking forward to the next project with Margret Steixner!
