Co-Founder & Managing Partner at wirkt. (wirkt. social innovation GmbH (gemeinnützig)
Passionate about new leadership styles and innovative impact models.
What drives me to work in the social enterprise field is the impact that we have with what we do every day. There are stressful, routine and challenging tasks, but then there is also very tangible impact. We have participants with a refugee experience that visited us 2-3 years after participating in one of our programs and they completely turned around their lives. We talk to parents of kids that take part in our workshops and hear them explain the amazing changes their kids have gone through. Those are the moments I work for.“
