Consultants

The dynamic interrelations between individuals and organisations have always fascinated me. I come from an industry that had to reinvent itself radically after a major existential crisis. I was deeply impressed by what can be achieved, when management teams pursue change with a common vision and professional competency. Even when facing difficult decisions, one of the key factors to success is to involve all existing resources. People are most successful when they pursue what they are highly committed to and strive for an excellent professional level.

Inspired by Mowgli’s discovery of the world, my first cinematic experience at the age of 10 led me to wonder about people and their motivations. Years later I learned that human behaviour does not take place in a vacuum, but in a social context, and it is shaped by the environment in which it takes place. So I began to immerse myself in the dynamics of organisational cultures.
