“A highly professional, senior facilitator – with a lot of passion,
a great presence and a warm open smile.”

Angelika’ work life is dedicated to the passion she has felt for a long time: integrating mindfulness practices into the development of leaders and employees working in today’s dynamic and complex organizations. Her former role as founder and Managing Partner of a successful leadership consultancy – as well as Head of Management Development at Switzerlands largest energy supplier – allowed her to grow as a leader and entrepreneur herself and to ‘walk her talk’, today being accepted as a trusted coach and sparring partner to her participants of all organizational levels.

While working in the corporate business environment and with more than 20 years of international management consulting and business leadership experience, Angelika was on a major growth journey of her own: as well as from her clients’ as from her own experience, she more and more realized the limitations of otherwise effective managerial approaches in today’s fast-spinning VUCA-world. She intensively started practicing mindfulness in 2005, inspired by the teachings of renowned mindfulness leaders from the US, Asia and Switzerland.

Today, she is convinced that mindfulness is the foundational competency for achieving human potential, happiness and optimal well-being and offers several programs on this behalf. As a Certified SIY Teacher she was part of the global cohort of 100 teachers for the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI), based on the leadership program developed at Google. Bringing together thought leaders in emotional intelligence, neuroscience and mindfulness, SIYLI is dedicated to developing wise and compassionate leaders.
