International projects design and realisation
Cosmopolitan thinking and acting in mutual appreciation and respect are important to me. Narrow-minded insistence on yesterday's positions is alien to me.
Projects that generate further added value by combining business and culture are of interest to me. I have worked successfully in this field for many years.

"The optimum occurs when there is a certain mixture of organisation and chaos.”Hermann Müller-Thurgau (1850–1927), Swiss viticultural researcher
Pressure to perform is good, but what is important first and foremost is rest for discovering one's own talent and developing one's own potential. You need time for both. The sources of creativity are intuition and imagination. Interaction and contradiction then create the disorder, restlessness and uncertainty in the mind that is needed for something new to emerge.
I enjoy working with multiculturally open-minded and interested young people from home and abroad with a focus on international work.
In physics: Performance is work per unit of time – for me, this is true in the world of work: The joy of doing is the basis for performance
I believe that global economic activity is bound to fail without serious cultural understanding. Projects have to pay off – that is absolutely clear – but they pay off when the partners have been able to build mutual trust and enjoy working together. Too many projects in international business fail because of mistrust.
The economy, society and culture do not need emotional flashes in the pan, but rather reliability and the willingness to overcome anything that seems to stand in the way of a successful project. Reliability is the prerequisite for sustainability. Reliability gives young people throughout the world security and the courage to necessarily look at things differently and implement them differently than before. It would be naïve to believe that this can be achieved "just like that". It would likewise be naïve to believe that attending country-specific behavioural seminars will make a decisive difference.
I believe – despite all the necessary development of digital conferences and meetings – that the decisive factor for success is still the personal encounter. That is what I want to promote the following: digital yes, but not exclusively!
Everything is always connected to everything else, but you are looking for where it all starts?
You want to organise a concert, but you have neither a room with suitable acoustics, nor a grand piano, nor someone to stage it all, advertise it and write you a review afterwards?
You don't have enough time to take care of recently arrived students with language problems?
Are you looking for a brilliant idea for a high-quality business event for customer loyalty? Do you need support with the implementation?
Do you urgently need support in managing a difficult client relationship so that nothing "slips" in your project?
Cold calling for sales is not your thing?
An international meeting in the target country is on the agenda, but who will take care of airport transfers and accommodation, negotiate conference packages, take care of technology and special requests, stage the musical soirée at the end?
You are a foreign educational institute and are looking for a cooperation partner for summer courses to bring European cultural life closer to your students, but you are confronted with an overwhelming number of possibilities?

Always follow your nose
A meaningful project from business and culture should always have a socio-political underpinning so that it pulls forward. It deserves to be tackled with passion, heart and mind. This requires not only the right nose for what is really important, but also for the right moment.
After 10 years of building up the creative team of a medium-sized company, I am looking forward to the next project. Please get in touch if you need support with organisational and communication challenges – especially in the international context of the EU, Asia and Switzerland.
