Christiane Schnetzer (Dipl.- Ing., MA, Diplom-Trainer, Consulting)

In the past 25 years, I have lived and worked in four different cultures and I have travelled to about 45 countries. These cultural encounters and professional experiences have deeply influenced me. The graduate university course on “intercultural competence” and a course to become certified trainer form the professional expertise for my work as intercultural trainer and consultant.
