For more than 20 years I have been working in business, media and politics in positions of responsibility. During great political upheavals I was active in church and politics. During the first new-media-wave at a media company, during the mobile phone boom at an international telecommunication company, in the middle of the banking crisis at a bank and during the reorganization of the trade sector in an international trade company. Why am I present in those upheavals? Because I live and maintain a very heterogeneous network, which allows me to find solutions in even the most challenging of times. And: I like to connect people with one another. Because change begins with listening.
