“It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you” (The Batman, Batman Begins)

Humankind is an incredible species. Our needs to community are just as pronounced as our needs to be different to others. We constantly cross boundaries that we ourselves have created – language, political, cultural. We build a sense of reality with the limitations that our sensory organs place on us and we invent philosophies, moral codes and ethical standards to shape how we navigate this reality. My work is to facilitate learning about and through these diverse ways of being in the world, grounded in empirical sociology and neuroscience, so that those of us who cross boundaries have the tools and insights that empower co-operation.

What people say about me

“Highly talented trainer & coach with broad knowledge and extraordinary passion for his work. Perfect preparation and execution.”
Aneta Dlugopolska-Mikonowicz, Sales Manager, Lear Corporation

“As a professional in the field of adult learning / training, I came to know and work with hundreds of trainers from all over the world, but only few of them stood out and made a lasting impression on me. Bastian was most certainly one of them. I hired Bastian to work as an external contractor in one of the courses provided by the Council of Europe, and he proved to have in-depth knowledge of both the topics he was presenting and of the pedagogical tenets required to effectively train on them. Beside being highly knowledgeable, Bastian proved to have an excellent capacity to work in teams together with the ability of transforming conflicts into sources of creative solutions. Bastian is a competent professional and a man of integrity, generous both as a professional and as an individual, attentive to the needs of all the stakeholders and fun to work with. It his with great pleasure that I recommend him to anybody looking for a top-notch trainer.”
Mac Maistrelli, Engineering Manager – New Ventures Division, Blocket
