What dri­ves me
  • Sup­port­ive col­lab­o­ra­tion with a focus on poten­tial
  • Explor­ing dif­fer­ent mod­els of liv­ing and expe­ri­enc­ing diver­si­ty
  • Inte­grat­ing new insights into exist­ing con­cepts and enhanc­ing them
  • The vibrant dynam­ic of a work­shop or sem­i­nar when par­tic­i­pants are ful­ly engaged
  • Sus­tain­able solu­tions that com­bine aspects of busi­ness, soci­ety, the envi­ron­ment and col­lec­tive ener­gies
What has shaped me
  • Even at a young age, I was able to explore things and became, among oth­er things, an ear­ly adopter of IT tools and a train­er in the com­pa­ny even though I was employed in the finance depart­ment.
  • Jug­gling a part-time job, a fam­i­ly with two chil­dren and stud­ies
  • Tak­ing on respon­si­bil­i­ty as the man­ag­ing direc­tor of a non-prof­it organ­i­sa­tion and build­ing bridges between pro­fes­sions
  • Com­mut­ing between head office and sub­sidiaries around the globe and expe­ri­enc­ing all the cul­tur­al dif­fer­ences
What I am grate­ful for
  • Liv­ing in a mul­ti-fam­i­ly home with four gen­er­a­tions of women empow­ered me and showed me a diver­si­ty of lifestyles every day.
  • Edu­ca­tion and learn­ing didn’t hap­pen in a lin­ear way for me. As a 40-year-old, it was enrich­ing to be back at uni­ver­si­ty, learn­ing with young stu­dents.
  • Team devel­op­ment in Chi­na is def­i­nite­ly dif­fer­ent to that in Aus­tralia. My inter­na­tion­al work has inspired me for years.
What I par­tic­u­lar­ly enjoy
  • Whether win­ter or sum­mer, I love the moun­tains where I can sort out my thoughts, brain­storm new ideas or sim­ply switch off.
  • Embark­ing on jour­neys of dis­cov­ery: Whether encoun­ters with goril­las in Ugan­da, indige­nous peo­ple in Papua New Guinea, Andean peo­ple in Ecuador, the Inu­it in Green­land or with our friends in the gar­den of our house on Wai­heke in New Zealand
  • Our laid-back, large fam­i­ly gath­er­ings, where every­one is bub­bling over with sto­ries and keen to share expe­ri­ences
Lines of poet­ry that inspire me
  • “I live my life in widen­ing cir­cles that reach out across the world. …” Rain­er Maria Rilke
  • “A mag­ic dwells in each begin­ning, pro­tect­ing us, telling us how to live.” Her­mann Hesse
  • “O, world, oh, beau­ti­ful world, I can hard­ly see you for all the flow­ers!” Joseph von Eichen­dorff
