STRATEGY + POSITIONING
ADOPT A POSITION!
No matter if in times of success, crisis or change, while launching a start-up or launching a product: authentic and sustainable communication leadership requires internal uniformity, professional analysis, forward-thinking strategies and clear positioning for your company, your brand, your product or even you personally. In close collaboration with you, I analyze your individual positioning and provide assistance in the development of new strategic measures of communication in a positioning workshop tailored to meet your specific profile and requirements. This collaboration serves as the foundation to develop your customized communication plan, and aids you in implementing various communication measures. Using tools such as targeting, SEO and customer journey maps is just as significant to the success of your communicative measures as ‘classic’ PR tools, e.g. agenda setting, press releases or face-to-face discussions with media outlets and disseminators.
START A DIALOGUE!
The days that simple public relations work was enough are gone. Today, companies and brands must create public relevance, employ effective communication management techniques and generate attractive PR content. While PR is still predominantly conducted via the classic channels of communication with media partners, the influence of these standard communication channels is sinking rapidly as print media is in decline and publishers are faltering. The increasing use of social media and blogs has enabled stakeholders to actively shape communication.
Take the initiative and engage in professional, cross-media PR content by starting a content-based dialog with your target groups. In today’s world, people want engaging content worthy of discussion, they want to be informed and inspired. And they want it no matter where they are or what they are doing—be it on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, tablets, reading a newspaper, listening to the radio or watching TV. When you create relevance, you speak about topics from your client’s perspective and transmit your message clearly.

"PORTRAYING THE PEOPLE AND STORIES BEHIND COMMUNICATION
AND MEDIA IS MY TRUE PASSION—AND IT’S ALSO MY PROFESSION."
During my political science, psychology and contemporary German literature studies, I began actively engaging in the interplay between media and society, e.g. in research on the impact of media, in communication strategies and in topics such as crowd psychology.
At the same time, I was active in the field of journalism, working for German newspapers DIE WELT and Hamburger Abendblatt. While writing for these publications, I focused on culture and media topics. Subsequently, I performed a traineeship at the Milchstraße publishing group. However, I also continued with journalistic activities, this time branching out into the field of domestic and international politics and society for German publications DIE WELT, Focus, DIE ZEIT, and Tagesspiegel, among others.
However, it was not until I became active in the strategic communication and PR sectors that I was able to combine all the aspects I feel are essential to effective, holistic communication. Through my activities with numerous agencies and companies over the past 10 years, I have learned the inner workings of the entire media landscape—from print to digital—implementing successful strategies and concepts for companies, media, brands and products from a myriad of branches and genres. My professional activities have allowed me to collaborate with a variety of people, from seasoned industry professionals to laypersons, with topical focuses ranging from lifestyle to e-commerce. To meet each of these unique challenges, I rely on journalistic thinking and writing to create individualized stories.
Today, I employ my experience, knowledge and vast network of contacts to create tailored solutions for my clients as an independent communication expert.
