Our Partners

Raum für persönliche Entwicklung

„Unternehmensberaterin zu werden, kam für mich nie in Frage – dann lernte ich UNITY kennen. Mittlerweile berate ich seit siebzehn Jahren Kunden und unterstütze sie dabei, sich für die Zukunft richtig aufzustellen. Wie vielfältig der Beratungsalltag ist, habe ich in den verschiedensten Rollen – erst als Beraterin, dann als Teamleiterin und jetzt als Partnerin und Geschäftsfeldleiterin kennengelernt. An UNITY schätze ich, dass mir immer Raum für die persönliche Entwicklung gegeben wird und ich Verantwortung sowie spannende und herausfordernde Projekte mit einem gesunden Maß an Individualität verbinden kann. Dieses Vertrauen und die Flexibilität ermöglichen es mir, individuell auf die unterschiedlichen Kundenbedürfnisse einzugehen und immer die bestmögliche Lösung anzubieten.“
