Explaining interesting facts from research in an interactive setting to my participants so they can apply them easily to their workplace is one of my goals as a trainer. Because not all new findings in latest research are self-explanatory. Especially the translation into a contemporary training design I find simply exciting.

As senior HR developer and trainer, I always keep the company’s perspective as well as the employee’s perspective in mind. I pay attention to an appreciative and solution-oriented atmosphere so that all participants feel free to contribute to the workshop or seminar. This prerequisite is key for participants to transfer new knowledge and current methods into practice at the workplace.

„The greatest danger in life is becoming too cautious.“ (Alfred Adler)
