Cathrin is an outstanding mentor, coach and trusted person. She is very open minded, engaged and goal-focused. She shared many useful tools to supplement soft-skills and to stimulate personal development. She makes complex subjects easy to understand and is very thoughtful when it comes to individual advice and approaches. She acts very professionally while showing empathy at the same time. I had many interesting, valuable and useful discussions with Cathrin over the last years.   –  Nils Wrogemann, Senior Relationship Manager (Vice President) – German Large Corps at Deutsche Bank
