“Mr. Stange quickly grasped the circumstances we were facing in preparation for our strategy meeting among staff. He shepherded us thoroughly in preparation for the meeting and facilitated the meeting superbly, by letting all the participants fully engaged in discussions and managing and closing the meetings with action items with responsible person(s) in charge of them. We are now following up these items diligently. We recommend Jochen’s expertise highly to anybody who is in need of support for strategy execution and facilitating meetings with complex issues and goals. ”

“I had the pleasure of working with Jochen on two different strategy workshops that he had designed and moderated. Both retreats were about restructuring our organization and bringing multicultural teams together. In both cases I found Jochen to be an efficient and astute moderator, with the right level of soft skills. His listening skills were excellent and yet he was decisive enough to bring endless discussions to a close when needed.”
