I can advise you on how to open up space for public argumentation and question the way European public opinion and policy is administered. To this extend I will support you to participate in agenda setting, pro-actively create public or political topics and propose communications and policy solutions.
I help to develop meaningful and enduring solutions to meet ever changing requirements or unexplored market potential, focused on supporting operational, sales and marketing and fundraising efforts. In this respect I will help create adequate reward and motivational incentives while encouraging assertive risk-taking and creative solution finding.
Since 2006 I work as an entrepreneur and hands-on strategic consultant, public affairs adviser and mentor with innovative businesses and organisations. I have been working since 2012 to establish better regulation for crowdfunding and peer-to-peer and alternative digital finance in Europe, focusing both on a building a prudential industry and ensuring stringent and transparent consumer protection. I am a frequent speaker at conference on entrepreneurship, collaborative economy and alternative funding.
I started my career in the early 1990s in the publishing industry with companies such as a subsidiary of Deutscher Fachverlag, Euromoney Institutional Investor and the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association. I hold Masters degrees from Solvay Business School (Université Libre Bruxelles) and from the University of Hamburg and studied at SEESS (University College London) in London.
