"People grow with their tasks"

Manager & CEO | IBM Deutschland GmbH & Silberdraht /Access all Areas

What means career for you?

Challenge the status quo and be ready for change: adapt quickly but also strive for new ways of doing things.

What inspires you?

I love art, sci-fi and the forest. I get inspired by it and try to extract visions from future scenarios for my current projects in order to be able to look out of the box.

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

Transform a successful Hackathon project into a Social Tech Startup. The journey has just begun!

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

“Take more time to become a manager.” I rather focus on the valuable feedback from my mentors and friends and my own judgement.

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

Exchange with people is essential: it helps you question your current view of things, but also enables you to grow. I always have several mentors, and I am a mentor myself.

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

Have courage! You can always take something for yourself from the next step.

What is your proudest achievement (so far)?

Being able to generate an impact for people in need with our Social Tech Startup.
