Life must be lived forward, but can only be understood backwards.

As a professional I like to share inspiration and experiences. I use Twitter and LinkedIn for short messages. On this page you will find more extensive reflections and stories. They usually describe events that inspire me, things that amaze me, themes that keep me busy or interesting experiences as a consultant in strategic and cultural change.
