You aim to envision, design, plan, and implement a digital strategy for your company, brand, or department. From vision and research to portfolio planing and implementation, I can take the lead, advise, coach your team, or provide an experienced second opinion.
Your organization wants to build a new business unit or aims to spin-off a new digital venture. I am very experienced from ideation to scaling. Usually, I am hired as an advisor to the future management team or take the lead as an interims CEO to kickstart the new unit.
From market research over strategy and planning to implementation, I advise and support. From hands-on-work to managing, training, growing, and leading teams or external suppliers, I drive branding, communications, and marketing projects.
Generating initial revenue with innovative products and services during go-to-market or when entering new markets is my focus in this area. I develop strategies, build, and grow teams to drive the top-line and consequentially the bottom-line of your business.
I support in navigating the complexities of change management and transformation, particularly when driven by digital technology and innovation. With dedicated coaching and training I provide leaders and their teams with the critical knowledge to adapt to change.
I utilize my expertise and experience to help businesses improve performance, increase efficiency, and achieve their goals. With my strong outside perspective, unbiased analysis, and actionable recommendations I drive positive change and help businesses thrive.
Restructuring a project, venture, or company involves making strategic changes to operations, management, and finances in order to reduce costs, increase revenue, and improve overall viability. I advise in such processes and take on the role as an interim leader.
