What I Do


I help to develop meaningful and enduring solutions to meet ever changing requirements or unexplored market potential, focused on supporting operational and project management, sales and marketing and fundraising efforts.

Public Affairs

I can advise you on how to open up space for public argumentation and question the way European public opinion and policy is administered. I can also help you understand how to benefit from public co-funding opportunities.  


I mentor during startup and restructuring with regard to operation, strategy and business development. I also design and run collaborative workshops on aspects around alternative funding of innovation, including crowdfunding.



Since 2006 I work as a hands-on strategic consultant, public affairs adviser and mentor with innovative businesses and organisations. 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.
