For tomorrow's success, I tread carefully and nuance each word

I spent my early days in Vienna, Singapore and Johannesburg. South Africa was my second home for almost 20 years. While studying Communication Sciences at the University of South Africa I was active in sports promotions.

 

With a degree in my pocket, I spent one year in Germany where I headed the Marketing & PR Management for an IBM partner-group of companies.

 

Back in South Africa, I was briefly involved in the automotive industry. I polished my journalistic writing skills in a number of special features for the local Topcar magazine.

 

Eager to support Austrian companies, I joined the Austrian Business Chamber in South Africa as a co-founder in 1994. I took care of PR and the communication with various European business chambers. I wrote editorials for different chamber publications and became a member of the Public Relations Institute of South Africa. Later, I established liaisons with the South African Foreign Affairs Ministry and European embassies for a German consulting group.

 

In 1999, I was back in Austria. Aviation was my passion while jetting around the globe. I became acquainted with even more markets and cultures, and developed profound skills in major airport privatisations. This included market analyses and reports, strategic concepts for development projects, sales stories for business and consortium partners, contracts, corporate profiles or putting together and managing international bids. Regularly, I presented topical issues as conference speaker. 

 

2007 marked the kick-off for ART-OF-WRITING - a logical step after more than 20 years in international business.
