Dorothea inspires her audiences with her captivating workshops, masterclasses and lectures around the leadership of growth companies.

No matter whether it’s a startup or corporate, founder or CEO….
Dorothea has been there herself and knows the challenges. The business challenges, but also the very personal ones.

With her holistic leadership philosophy, Dorothea supports founders and leaders in achieving sustainable growth: for themselves, for the people in their teams and their companies.


From Founder to CEO: „Dorothea managed to pick up a very heterogeneous audience of young founders and very experienced executives exactly where they stood and set new, very inspiring impulses for all participants. Her practical stories make her thought-provoking ideas very tangible and facilitate implementation in the long term.“

Martin Giese, Xpreneurs incubator and author of “Startup Finanzierung”

David and Goliath: “With her presentation, Dorothea held the mirror up to my eyes in many places. This food for thought really inspired me to reflect on my company in a new way. Such insights from the outside are enormously important for young founders.“

Christian Schieber, Founder & CEO Technology, Bytabo

Sexy or Sustainable: „With her great talk Dorothea shows how entrepreneurs can transform their business models – and be both sexy and sustainable. Seven thought-provoking points, all to the point and backed up with practical examples. A real highlight.“

Jazz up your Leadership Team.

High performance teams work like jazz combos. Using Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” as an example, this impulse shows the five disciplines of team leadership: defining the team, growing together, getting into the groove with the team charter, resolving conflicts and making effective decisions, learning together.
