My journey began 15 years ago, doing an apprenticeship as Travel Agent, 300 kilometres away from my hometown in Germany. My fellow apprentices and I were sent on tours around the world, as tour guides. I enjoyed teaching the tourists I accompanied valuable information about the history and culture of the places we went to.
I am not going to lie though – it was a hard work-life balance to maintain. I was never home and often did not have any time off between trips, meaning long, sleepless nights of unpacking, washing my work clothes and repacking.
It did however provide life-changing experiences and I gained a lot of unique knowledge from the outside perspectives I was exposed to. It also woke the trainer in me and after visiting and staying in a few more places, I settled in London.
Now, I pass on this benefit of an outside perspective and provide collaborative, blended learning programmes that engage all levels of staff. Thanks to my travel experiences, I am particularly successful working with a variety of cultures, backgrounds, knowledge and skill levels.
For over 7 years, I have been guiding people to learn better and implement smart, cost effective performance strategies; making (work) lives easier for many businesses and their employees, especially Learning and Development professionals.
We are designed to be active and engaged. Enable your employees to be the best they can be and advocate workplace wellbeing. My job is to make sure everyone in your business can fully focus on theirs.
