Profile and expertise

20 years of experience across the entire PR spectrum

I have been working as a freelancer and a staffer in leading positions for numerous established and renowned companies, research institutions and clients in the fields of PR consulting and corporate communications as well as editorial work and journalism since the mid-nineties.

I am passionate about communicating products and services that require explanation as well as complex content and issues.
My focus lies in the fields of technology, high-tech and innovation as well as the internet economy and digital transformation.

Experience counts

In communicating complex issues at the interfaces between the public, politics, business, science, research and the media, I have gained a lot of strategic and operational experience after 20 years in the profession. Thanks to my long and varied professional career, I have acquired an all-round expertise.

All-round expertise

This expertise is based on my work as a journalist and online editor, as well as a PR consultant, project and team leader for online communication, as a press corporate spokesperson and as an account manager for agencies. As an independent PR consultant for strategic B2B communication, I have been supporting start-ups and IT SMEs from Germany, Switzerland, the UK and Israel in marketing their services in the German-speaking market since 2017.

Communication of complex issues

Due to the focus of my professional career, I have qualified in the successful communication of complex issues such as digitalisation and technology or economic research and have acquired great expertise. I look forward to using this foundation to solve your company's communication challenges together with you. I prefer to accompany my clients continuously for on a long time, because this is the way to build sustainable visibility in the target industries.

Communication is a matter of trust

My work is all about creating attention and trust for your company in the public. What I put into practice for you is authentic communication with the people who are crucial for your business success. The goal is a dialogue on an equal footing between your company and its target groups. You benefit from a personal, trusting contact with me as your permanent contact person from the first phone call to the successful implementation and the individual performance review.

Network for individual requirements

I work freely, but not alone: together with my network of professional partners, I guarantee that all requirements are implemented at the highest quality. This allows me to respond flexibly, individually and also at short notice to your respective requirements.

High quality content

In addition to the professional cultivation of contacts with media representatives and multipliers, the conception and production of high-quality content also plays a central role. Because the old internet motto "Content is King" has been making a great comeback for some time.

The chemistry must be right

I work with people, not with companies. Counselling in a sensitive area is based on a trusting interaction between all parties involved. This also means that the chemistry must be right. I therefore invite you to get to know me during a non-binding preliminary meeting.
