  • Some info about contacting me

    Picture of a hearing aid
    Since birth I’m hard of hearing. Whereas conversing in small groups or in person is no problem, I have trouble with phone calls.

    I prefer e-mail, video calls and personal talk. Please send an e-mail first. Usually I answer very quickly and can set up a video call with you. If you absolutely need to phone me, please call my assistants, they’ll assist in helping me understand your questions.

You’d like to know more?

Please fill out the form to receive a short profile on my background and services. And, if you like, we can also set up a quick video call or meeting. You can also contact me on XING and LinkedIn.
