Whenever I remember something that truly inspired me, it is related to a certain kind of people – people who have the courage to live their own lives in accordance with their own truth. People who put tons of energy in everything they do. People who provide environments which make a difference. People who inspire and touch others life’s.
The blog series PEOPLE, PROSPERITY & PLACES TO BE is an opportunity to meet exactly this type of people.
What do you do?
Everything I do is related to content – I write, edit, translate and come up with content ideas for different formats. That might be a website, a Twitter account, a travel guide book or a conference. Before going freelance at the end of 2009, I worked as an editor and then in corporate communications in Germany and London, where I live, and now provide these services in different shapes and forms to clients in Germany and the UK.
With a focus on media, publishing and tech/start-ups, I also have some “special projects” on the go and am, for instance, the UK Country Manager for a German calendar self-publishing platform that launched here in 2014 or act as a consultant for German media and publishing companies and organisations that have UK interests.
What’s the difference that makes the difference?
The opposite of superficiality – whatever I do, I like to dig deep.
Maybe that’s because I’m innately curious or simply because I really dislike it when things are not done properly. In any case, can’t help it!
In three words, can you sum up what characterises the experience you provide?
Expect things to be done with spirit, a sense of humour and in a reliable way (hey, I’m German after all!).
