Svenja Neupert Dip. Paedagogin
Founder, Kompetenzia International
Svenja has more than 25 years' experience of delivering inspirational coaching, seminars and speeches.
Svenja's unique visionary perspective, which is at the same time completely practical, produces sustainable results with a multitude of ways to integrate your goals into daily life.
An essential conviction for Svenja is that everyone has an inner compass - a purpose which gives him or her a lifelong orientation, and which especially equips one to cope with challenges in times of uncertainty.
Very often the view of this ‘inner compass’ seems to be obscured by daily workload and time pressure. Sometimes people do not dare to ask themselves essential questions.
It is Svenja's passion, and purpose, to encourage and support you with just such questions.
