Our approach to consulting is firmly based on including personal experiences.

In the past almost 30 years we worked for a variety of companies under highly diverse cultural conditions. We've had the opportunity to personally experience the entire sales side of an organization as well as the overall corporate responsibility. We have established and globally launched brands, products, and collections, designed and realized countless advertising campaigns (online and offline),

sat as a Key-Account Manager, Sales Director, GM Sales / Ecom at the "cold side of the table" and have been responsible for the P&L as a Managing Director.

In consequence, we base our consulting projects on these practical experiences – it often helps to know what a potential candidate should "deliver".
