Banker and Meditation teacher

Bank & Mindfulness

As a banker, former CEO of a banking group with 5,000 employees and honorary professor on the one hand, and as a certified teacher and practitioner of mindfulness and meditation on the other, I connect very different worlds. In my lectures - mostly interactive and with exercises - I build an exciting bridge.
