I am an executive coach, leadership and communications skills trainer, and HR consultant based near Dusseldorf, Germany. With my company - Creating Tomorrow: The Leadership Consultancy - I work with both corporate and individual clients. I am committed to facilitating my coachees and workshop participants as they unleash the IMPACT coaching and professional development can have on their careers.
I help coachees successfully conquer the challenges they face in reaching the career- and business-related goals they have set for themselves both FASTER and more EFFECTIVELY.
A native American, I have been a passionate trainer for numerous German and international corporations, and - as an advertising executive earlier in my career - successfully managed several internationally-known blue chip brands for both national and global advertising clients. Based on my long years of experience, my talents as an intercultural facilitator, as well as an enthusiastic – and persuasive – speaker and presenter quickly became my calling card.
Since leaving the active advertising arena, I have moved from the faster pace of downtown Dusseldorf, Germany to live in a picturesque village near the Dutch border. Here I divide my time between my immediate family (including a 24 year old daughter, a 23 year old son, and two dachshund puppies) and work in Europe, and nurturing a growing client base in the Greater Philadelphia area, where much of my extended family resides.
My mission has taken me from Germany to Bulgaria and Turkey, and to the Netherlands and Russia, where I have enthused both large and small audiences with intuitive knowledge, experience, vibrancy and commitment. Most of all, however, I continue to energize people in my quest to facilitate anyone looking to bring out the best in themselves through a lifelong commitment to personal development and growth.
I can also suggest yugma.com, if this is still an issue for you. although people do have to sign up/in, there is no cost to either party for a limited number of participants - and it also offers a telephone conferencing service in addition to online meeting facilities.
I agree with RabbitMountain where Google Apps are concerned. I personally use Google Apps for Domains. It allows me to collaborate both with cooperation partners (e.g. for article/presentation writing), as well as share documents with coaching clients. Because I am able to control which document is shared with whom, I can also ensure confidentiality. Although I also have an account at zoho.com, I haven`t been quite as happy with their collaboration possibilities (though - otherwise - I really like it).
