During my expatriation to Tokyo from August 2014 to December 2016, I decided to share my international experience with all those who have to deal with diversity in their professional environment and founded Beyond.
My aim is to help others build a global mindset and gain intercultural competence. I truly believe that if you learn to appreciate the differences, you will soon identify new opportunities for your personal development and for the success of your team and company. Broadening your horizon by embracing diversity will get you from a spectator’s role into the driver’s seat.
My main focus is to improve the relationships between Japanese and non-Japanese colleagues whether they are based in Japan or across the world. I aim to create understanding and to provide pragmatic and sustainable solutions to successfully manoeuvre in a global setting. I draw on my years of international experience to help my clients develop strategies and to create value that can be leveraged to succeed in a changing environment and to help companies improve performance in the workplace.
I currently live in Nuremberg, Germany, but I continue to travel back and forth between Germany and Japan to serve my Japanese clients. I am part of the Canning & Associates team in Tokyo and a member of FEW – For Empowering Women.
