I worked at the consultancy Bain & Company. Here I learned strategy, project organization, information design and the seriousness of life. I went to Telefónica Germany as a project manager . I managed a variety of projects.
Thanks to an internal request, I trained colleagues in presentation design. And now it's getting exciting: I was closer to myself in the training sessions than in my job as a project manager. In 2015, I consequently founded I-HAVE-A-TEAM.de as a trainer . My goal: to support executives and teams in times of change through interaction and communication. At the same time I decided to quit PowerPoint for the time being. I took presentations into my own hands - by drawing them.
In addition to team training, clients booked me for vision workshops, flipchart design, sketchnotes, self-management in an agile environment, DISC personality training and creative workshops. Through my commitment to Rock Your Life! I helped young people and companies setting up mentoring programs.
I have also been working as a graphic recorder since 2017. When clients need pictures, I draw what I hear in analog or digital formats. Even when product ideas need to be shaped clearer, I am happy to help as a designer. Today, all of my skills help me to design and run unique workshops.
As I grew up, I loved drawing and taking analog photos. I captured my impressions of life in pictures. This gave me a feeling for composition, proportion and graphics. I realized that all people have the most diverse images and associations anchored in their heads. I neglected my passion for pictures after school and university. It was only kept rudimentarily alive through the creation of Powerpoints. Only when I started my own business did I pay more attention to her again.
I have also enjoyed playing board games since I was a child. I continued this tradition during my studies. It was then that I imagined how good it would be to play first when meeting new business partners. That way you would get to know each other quickly. A few years ago I discovered the opening effect of improvisational theater and various warm-up games. Today, when I meet potential customers, I play with you first. And my workshops are also based on playful interactions.
Images and games are essential in face-to-face work and virtual collaboration. They increase attention, joy and connection between colleagues. That is why I use both elements in a targeted manner to build up interpersonal relationships.
I've been fortunate to have been part of a wonderful team since birth. Thanks to my parents and my 3 siblings, I experienced appreciation, support and shared experiences right from the start. Due to the genes of the “tallest” little woman who existed for me at the time - my grandmother - and the optimistic manner of my father, I liked to make other people laugh. I learned early on that human relationships are essential for good results .
When the wall came down in 1989, my parents lived out their newly won freedom to travel. And I got to know you from the back seat of Europe and America. I was enthusiastic about languages and studied international economics in Reutlingen, the USA and Mexico . And I've traveled much of the world. While working for Telefónica, I also lived in Madrid. I campaigned against child labor in Colombia. Other countries led me to new people. This broadened my perspective and showed me that interpersonal relationships work internationally.
