You can ask me for your personal or institutional needs of
Critical and friendly reflection
I enjoy process moderation and facilitating change. I have a non-judgemental attitude and an urge to fully understand a situation, its context and its main players. This enables me to be critical and supportive in (interim-) management and leadership, evaluations and reviews.
I develop and implement international co-operation projects with large groups of partners. I frame context and need of a project and keep the focus of all partners on a jointly developed goal. My natural role is that of a catalyst for the diverse potentials and cultures of all partners and stakeholders.
I am experienced as a participant and as co-ordinator of collaborative and dialogue-based research as well as of stakeholder processes that lead to advocacy tools. See the literature list below for some exemplary outcomes.
My thematic interests, experience and knowledge include
quality cultures and organisational change
multilateral co-operation projects and (EU) funding
artistic research, cultural participation and -leadership
contested heritage and memory cultures
I have a proactive attitude, an inclusive approach and an ethical mindset. Colleagues describe me as easy-going, impact oriented, flexible and creative. I am quick in adapting to institutional cultures at all organisational levels. My habitat is a broad international network from higher education, research and the arts.
I will always work with tailor made approaches based on dialogue, thorough research, principles of open space technology, co-creation and participation.

“I enjoy a diverse group of people and feel comfortable in volatile situations with contradictions, frictions and different cultures of expression. Those bare a great creative potential. Within a project, an institution or a team I will make sure everyone involved is heard and then move forward as a collective once all participants own the space and the process. I will always build trust first so that change becomes an opportunity, creativity emerges naturally and we move forward together.”
