About me

From my Insights Discovery profile 2011: "Valentina Siemens is analytical, objective and interested in the underlying principles. She values aesthetics and strives for quality. She has the ability to recognise and implement what is needed in a situation. She conveys stability and reliability."

I started my professional life with this foundation after graduation. After a few years as a leader, I decided to become self-employed and have been consulting people and companies ever since. In doing so, I rely primarily on scientific knowledge from sociology and psychology. I attach great importance to clear, direct and respectful communication. If you are ready, so am I.
