Since her student days, Helene has been working in the marketing and communications fields. Her over 40 year career has spanned leading positions in banking, consultancy for small to medium-sized businesses and her own communications und publishing agency.
In the past 10 years she has devoted her professional activities to sustainability, seeking to answer the central question as to how companies can be economically successful whilst serving their social responsibility.
After the start in 2005, she initiated in 2009 the managerohne grenzen (managers without borders) foundation – a charitable body deploying worldwide business know-how in developmental projects in a bid to thwart hunger and poverty. This foundation involves Helene in working in the vital tangent of business meeting development “aid”. She makes business expertise available to sustainable small to medium-sized enterprises designed to spark prosperity particularly in under-developed rural communities of the Third World. Another sphere of Helene’s activities, and one very close to her heart, is truly sustainable CSR measures in German businesses – particularly in promoting their partnership when they plan operations in countries in which managers without borders are already active. This interface between the foundation’s business and cultural experience in these countries with corporate planning of future entrepreneurial activities there, is an obvious win-win situations for all involved.
Helene is also a sought-after CSR and sustainability consultant, communications and seminar moderator; CEO of the consulting company dialogprojects ltd and resilience and leadership coach for responsible leadership. www.auszeitkultur.de
