    portrait Professional experience & background
I have been running my business since 2003, and continue to be amazed at how it continues to grow and evolve. I am Swiss-Chinese and have lived in Hong Kong, New Zealand, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Australia and am currently based in Switzerland. Languages I speak include English, German, Swiss-German, French, Cantonese and Mandarin.

Past employers and positions include:

 Swiss Re, a leading global reinsurance company. Partially stationed in Singapore, my functions & responsibilities covered project and process management, reorganisation and cost management, CEO office management, corporate strategy and planning. In my last function I was communications and change manager in a major IT project.
 BHP Brugger & Partners, a Swiss-based consultancy specialising in sustainability and corporate responsibility.
 Baker & McKenzie, one of the top international law firms; I was based in Hong Kong and Zurich.

Clients and what they say...
My cultural background and diverse experience give me the privilege of being invited to speak at events and work with a wide range of international clientele across cultures and industries. These include leading multi-nationals in the finance, pharmaceuticals, IT, energy, cocoa, consumer health and public sectors as well as NPOs and CEOs of SMEs. I also work with independent professionals and individuals in transition.

My clients describe me as genuine, professional, structured, experienced, empathic, courageous and intuitive. I am a great listener, but am also known for interrupting "storytelling", putting my finger on the crux and getting the ball rolling.
I am happy to provide references, testimonials and details on fees and packages upon request.
