Managing Director next level consulting

Since the beginning of my professional career, communication and collaboration have played a central role – mostly in the form of projects or change tasks. I have moved from being a project manager at Austrian Airlines to a coach and consultant of project, change and transformation management to managing director of next level consulting South Africa. My clients, as well as colleagues, know me as a passionate champion of a solution-focused and resource-oriented approach to collaboration as well as a creative thinker and designer of tailor-made and sustainable pieces of work.

My special focus is on my family – my husband, Reinhard, and my two children, Sara Thandiwe and Isak Themba, as well as our three cats. My passion for nature and wildlife culminated in a study as a conservation biologist in 2018/2019, and I love spending my time in the African bush or on the back of a horse. Also, I am a big fan of great food with a glass of excellent wine in the company of dear friends.
