Elizabeth Horlemann


Preservation of one’s own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures. (Elizabeth Horlemann)

I am a person who lives between cultures and works with a wide variety of groups and personalities. My trainer and coach personality is characterized by: foresight, flexibility, a good sense of other persons ‘needs, enthusiasm & motivation transfer. As a Kenyan native speaker and I am fluent in English and German, with all these diversity, it is particularly important to me to keep looking at what connects and what we have in common. After 10 years of international professional experience as an After Sales Co-coordinator in a Japanese company in Germany, I have specialized since 1998 in intercultural subjects and since 2014 in coaching. Experiencing cultures, the intercultural exchange and people of various origins and backgrounds coming together constitute the greatest personal enrichment for me. My specialized training areas include cross-cultural competence building (for inland and overseas clients), diversity management, anti-racism and critical whiteness trainings.

What people say about me

Ich wollte mich nochmal für den wirklich tollen Kurs bedanken, da ich am Ende ja so schnell zum Bus musste. Es war wirklich sehr hilf- und lehrreich und du bist eine super Trainerin!”
Anne Fleischmann, Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Entwicklungshilfe (AGEH) e.V..”

“Es ist wirklich eine sehr lange Zeit her. Ich würde schätzen, dass es vor ca. 15 Jahren war. Aber ihren Namen habe ich nie vergessen. Sie haben mich damals (Ich war noch im Studium) sehr beeindruckt und mich nachhaltig inspiriert. Für mich waren sie eine Art Vorbild- obwohl wir uns nur 1 Mal begegnet sind. Aber bis zu unserem Gespräch war mir nicht klar, dass ich als Schwarze Frau auch die Möglichkeit haben könnte, eine Führungsposition zu bekleiden. Sie haben mir Hoffnung und Mut gegeben. Herzlichen Dank dafür!
Seit 1,5 Jahren lebe und arbeite ich in Köln. Ich mache Antidiskriminierungsarbeit und Empowerment für Schwarze Menschen und People of Color. Ich brauchte mehr Community und Safer Spaces. Das hat mir in St.Hubert sehr gefehlt. Und dennoch bin ich regelmäßig dort, da meine Familie in St.Hubert lebt.”
