Petra Wolkenstein from Konsultori was very supportive and gave us an additional perspective. That’s very important, because inside a company you often perceive things differently than from the outside. We received a lot of good input on the topics of target groups, strategy in the crisis and positioning. The counselling helped us to see our own strengths.

I regularly attend coaching sessions with Petra Wolkenstein from Konsultori because I need someone who can show me the right route like a navy officer. Petra does this in a very respectful way and in such a way that I never feel like I’ve done anything wrong. She’s always positive: “Yes, you’ve made it this far, how can we continue now?” That helps me a lot.

Working with Michael Kubiena was a really fruitful experience. He combines tons of experience and strong conceptual skills with a hands-on attitude: Exactly what we needed. Together we were able to create something entirely new & unique for the Turkish retail & hospitality industry as well as for the global Metro world, something which has become a reference point in terms of quality, innovation and customer focus. Michael not only was instrumental in designing our learning curriculum, he also successfully facilitated the development of our overall organization.

Thank you very much for the workshop. My colleague and I really enjoyed it! We also think that we really learnt a lot from your presentation. In order for the implementation to take effect, we need a reserved time window, which we now have.

I enjoyed the workshop on customer acquisition measures for civil engineers so much that we are now going to get the whole office on board to implement the measures. The practical examples are motivating and show how customer acquisition can be strengthened on several channels – and that acquisition is something that can be learnt! Highly recommended.
