My mission

With my individual consulting service, imaginative solutions and focus on the customer, I support tourism businesses in and outside of Austria to improve the performance of their company, position themselves better in the market, achieve higher customer satisfaction and thus generate better company results.

As an expert, consultant, and business coach, I act as a one-stop-shop, discreetly and reliably taking on the strategic work for which there is not enough time or expertise, and which will make the company more successful and sustainable.

After an in-depth analysis, we jointly develop possible solution scenarios, which we then implement in accordance with the corporate culture and together with the team, thus starting a sustainable change process.

My goal as a consultant is to help my clients identify the solutions to their existing issues themselves, and then work together to improve and implement them.

„You can’t teach anybody anything, only make them realize the answers are already inside them.“

(Galileo Galilei)

My vision – to achieve the best possible results for my clients through innovative and collaborative consulting in tourism, enabling sustainable growth of the company and the tourism industry.

About me personally

I am a tourism professional with heart and soul and proud to work in the tourism industry. My jobs in holiday clubs in the Mediterranean during my studies sparked my interest in tourism. I have been in the tourism industry for almost 40 years and have held many different positions, from sports instructor to tour guide, general manager, and CEO.

Foreign languages have fascinated me since my youth. My professional stays abroad have taken me to Tunisia, Morocco, Spain, France, Turkey, Ivory Coast, and Jamaica, where I had the chance to learn and perfect several foreign languages. Today I speak fluent French and English, very good Spanish, and can also converse well in Italian and Portuguese.

Traveling and especially discovering other cultures and traditions are also great passions of mine. One of my most memorable experiences was attending the Carnival parade in Trinidad & Tobago, where people danced around the city for two days in colorful costumes to lively rhythms.

About 20 years ago I discovered yoga as the perfect combination of strengthening, breathing, meditation, letting go, and improving work-life balance. I love the sea with its smells, sounds, and colors, it gives me strength, energy, and joie de vivre. In my free time, I enjoy sporting activities with friends on land and in water and I am always ready to try something new.

The curiosity to gain new knowledge and to discover unknown places and things accompany me throughout my life. Lifelong learning – reading books, educating myself, and learning new skills – inspires me every day.
