Who this course is for:
- Anyone who is interested in learning about the subject and is keen to take matters into her own hands
- Example: What is the cost we have in not achieving circularity?
My journey started in Los Angeles but moved on to different venues after adulthood. My first trip to Europe was at 19, and it changed my life's direction.
After finishing university, I moved to Berlin but in an unconventional way. I bought a one-way ticket to Hong Kong, not knowing how I would get to Berlin. China had just opened up the borders to individual tourists, so I ended up taking the Trans Siberian Railway through the Soviet Union, Poland, and then eventually West Berlin.
The goal was to stay only for 6 months. 2 years later, I moved from West Berlin to Vienna, where I eventually married a Viennese. We are in year 39 and counting.
We moved back to the US, where I started a career in customer service. Those learnings about customer satisfaction are still very much ingrained in me today.
We came back to Vienna right before the Berlin Wall fell, and it's been my home since. My career moved on to Project Management, Product Management, and Business Analysis, and I worked for different multinational companies.
I felt something was still missing, so I set up my own company 8 years ago and ventured into activities I couldn't have imagined beforehand. There is one common thread in all I have done. I love helping people and enjoy making a difference in any way possible. This, simply, has been my driver.
In addition, I have been involved in the world of academia for over a year in teaching this course and several others. There is nothing more satisfying than helping people reach their potential.
