What clients say

I worked with Désirée for some time and was infected by her ideas, structured work and personality.

A clear analytical view, precision in implementation and fun to work with — it’s what makes a great strategist and Désirée belongs to the upper level.

— Christian Clawien, Head of Customer Communications, S-Bahn Hamburg

Désirée’s strength is understanding the requirements and needs of a project and its stakeholders in great detail. And to develop the right solutions with her team. She uses her strong analytical skills to achieve effective results.

I highly recommend Désirée. Especially in overcoming complex challenges and developing strategic directions.

— Florian Hießl, VP, Global Head of Digital Internal Eco-System, Siemens

Désirée has been a crucial element in our brand strategy. Not enough business owners take a step back and think about their brand as carefully or thoroughly as Désirée has helped us to do.

She is an incredibly thoughtful and intelligent professional, helping us to avoid doing everything “just because”, really thinking through what we want our company to represent, and how we want our company to communicate through social media, events, and branding.

— Jeff Gibson, Co-founder and Head of Marketing, Shanna Paxton Photography

Thanks to Désirée’s support we significantly improved collaboration with our B2B partners in two key projects.

— Matthias Seeger, Head of Product Management and Marketing, Geno Broker
