What was your biggest professional challenge and how have you solved it?

The biggest challenge this year was to create the “TechShow” of the Car.Software.Organisation . We were asked to create a format that would be informative and emotionalizing at the same time, providing a compact overview of the products the Car.Software Org – and all of that during the challenging times of Covid-19. so we had to go digital. The biggest challenge was to create an hybrid event – live on stage, wtih speakers, exhibits and demos, integrating participants via Skype and MS Teams while sending the show out as a digital WebCase to about 4.500 recipients. In the ramp-up phase of t he CSO we had to overcome many uncertainties during our planning, but we had an great team, who did an amazing job creating the show.

What is the worst advice someone has ever said to you?

You cannot change it, because we have always done things this way.

What importance have career networks for you in your professional career?

Networks give the opportunity to get to know new people and new perspectives. In my opinion it is very important to keep an open mind, get new advices and change your perspective to grow together.

What is the learning or advice you would like to share with other women?

Be authentic and follow your path. Don´t listen to people, who tell you you cannot achieve things. You can, just do it and get out of your comfort zone.

What are you passionate about?

I love to be active and exploring new things. Therefore I try to go hiking, cycling and running as of as I can .
