But first get to know us – Daniel and Eike in private.


Daniel about Eike


Eike was already agile when the term had not yet made it into the business context. To persist and at the same time be able to react flexibly to changes – that’s in Eike’s blood. Not least his own cultural roots from the culture of the Alemannic-Swiss Travelers have put an “agile” thought into his cradle.

In the consulting context, our clients are often impressed by his intuitive understanding of the systemic structure of an organization. In events, the participants benefit from his benevolent and mediating manner.

Eike often succeeds in building bridges for others. With ease he connects the seemingly opposite. His natural humor helps him to do this.

With great pleasure and passion, Eike sets off on a journey – even to distant worlds. Since his youth he has been fascinated by different cultures. The more colorful or “exotic”, the more interesting. His music playlist includes Finnish tango, Portuguese fado, Greek hasapikos as well as tribal songs of indigenous North American cultures, panpipes from the Andes or Tyrolean brass music.

“Mens sana in corpore sano.” – Eike embodies this wisdom in the best way possible. The balance of mind and body is manifested in his natural physical presence.

He is inspired by the approach of minimalism and he is constantly searching for solutions that can be realized with little effort. The accumulation of material things can quickly become ballast – Eike understood this very early on and lives accordingly.

Eike about Daniel

When it gets really complex, Daniel gets going. With a cool head, he analyzes sharply and multi-perspectively.

As a committed “Advocatus Diaboli”, he does not shy away from provocative theses – all in the interest of the cause. He believes in the potential of a differentiated and multifaceted approach. He becomes skeptical with all too simple “one-size-fits-all” solutions and over-simplifying categorizations.

However, one should not be deceived by the first impression of the analytically cool facade. It doesn’t take much to perceive his fundamentally warm-hearted qualities behind it. For despite all his struggles for clarity, Daniel has a genuine interest in people. Daniel becomes even quite emotional when he stands on a stage. There his passion for acting and staging becomes apparent.

Ethical action is important for Daniel. So he is extremely loyal and reliable. One man, one word.

When it comes to challenges, Daniel has the remarkable competence to focus on solutions. He easily drops non-functioning approaches and finds new solutions. For him, there is never “one” solution – for him, there are always several ways to reach the goal.
