“Sense it and feel it, understand and get it, go for it and do it.” (Molly)

I love people, cultural variety, communication and music. For me working with people is a great privilege. My biggest pleasure is to help others understand, go forward and achieve something. Bonding and creating common ground is vital for my trainings – my motto is: “Bond, move forward and harvest.” Having lived and worked in Asia for many years, I gained thorough insight into the challenges of moving to and living in another country, immersing and then coming back. What are my strengths? I’m very good at assessing my clients’ needs, giving the relevant theoretical and practical input and sharing my cultural know-how. Apart from providing the necessary knowledge and knowhow, I specialize in developing my clients’ cross-cultural competences – competences needed to analyze concrete situations and find suitable solutions in a new cultural environment.

What people say about me

“Monika was very professional and focused at all times. She paid particular attention to our needs and allowed sufficient time for us to reflect and apply the theory to our own situations.” What I liked best about Monika’s seminar: “The agenda and content. The opportunity to apply theory into practice and to ourselves. It also made us feel more confident about our assignments”
Louise (intercultural training)

“Monika’s process of building upon theory, applying to case studies and then making me consider it in personal examples was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer or insight into the German culture. Monika did not rush us, but made the learning interactive and fun.”
Matthew (intercultural training)
