Brand Identity & StrategyCoachingCommunicationEditing & ProofreadingInterpreterMarketingPresentationsStrategy Development

I am a passionate linguist and marketeer with an enthusiasm for new technology and clear communication. For over 9 years I worked for a Japanese consumer electronics company with experience in all areas of marketing from strategy, new business development and product planning through to delivering promotional campaigns. Over the past 13 years I have been working with international and local Swiss businesses on their English communication in the workplace. A mixture of workshops, small group training and executive coaching to maximise efficiency in communication in English. I am a good sounding board for those who are not native English speakers and need a personal trainer in the workplace on English communication, in addition to my marketing strategy and planning services.
