My main topic is: radical progress by radical change.

I wrote a doctorate dissertation about this topic, so you could say I am the sacred cow exterminator.

Whether you want to change your life focus or the focus of your entire organization: If you want to do more than just a slight, incremental change, then maybe I am the right person to offer mentorship.

* Change is my life’s purpose. I can offer deep expertise on the topic of transformation: Many years of experience in coordinating change initiatives

* Highly experienced in strategy consulting with large-scale, complex, multi-site transformation projects.

* I was a former co-founder of a private equity company.

* I learned my trade at Accenture.

* Fluent in German (native) and English. I recently wrote a doctorate dissertation at a British university about change and organizational transformation, for my research interviewing e.g. James Bond.

* My clients include Novartis, Zurich, PWC, Daimler and Volkswagen.

* I have been a mentor in a pro bono mentorship program at the University of Würzburg, Germany, since 2012 continuously. In this program, I helped many young academics find their way into the „real world“, the world of business.

Ich hatte das Vergnügen, an einer Mentoring Session mit Stephan teilzunehmen, und ich bin äußerst zufrieden! Stephan hat mir bei der strategischen Ausrichtung meines Unternehmens enorm weitergeholfen und ich konnte spüren, dass seine Ratschläge aus der Praxis stammen. Es war offensichtlich, dass ihm das Mentoring wirklich Spaß macht. Besonders beeindruckt war ich von der angewandten Beispiele, sodass ich konkrete To-Dos hieraus ableiten konnte. Ich kann Stephan als Mentor wärmstens empfehlen und freue mich auf zukünftige Zusammenarbeit.
