Benefit from effective business training in intercultural settings
We all learn from the day we are born – every single day, as long as we live. Learning is natural. Learning is fun. In fact – our brain enjoys learning.
However as the renowned educator Horst Siebert once so accurately stated – adults “are able to learn, but unteachable”. This has also been my own observation in my many years of experience as a professional trainer and trainer of trainers. Knowing this, my role in training is to pave the way for open-mindedness and willingness to learn, and to spark interest and curiosity. To my mind, these are the prerequisites for effective learning in professional adult education.
My personal contribution is
This is what I bring to the table as the world’s first “Trainer-Trainer in Business (CCA)” (German Chamber of Commerce Abroad)”. The “Train the Trainer in Business (CCA)“ qualification is certified by the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (CCA) and the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK), in co-operation with the affiliated training organization of the Association of German Chambers (DIHK-Bildungs-GmbH). This international Train-the-Trainer seminar can qualify your staff to deliver training in other countries, or it can be conducted in your overseas branches to train local employees.
Besides specialist trainers and lecturers, the CCA Certificate course is especially geared towards internal company trainers, managers with training functions, and human resource developers in business of all sizes and in all branches who are assigned the task of international knowledge transfer.
The CCA Certificate course prepares employees to manage complex training process in international contexts. Successful participants learn the core didactic and methodical thinking behind effective adult education, and recognize the value of appreciative dialogue in training. They are able to employ visualization techniques effectively, and learn to master a variety of training methods for accompanying and stimulating participants during learning processes. Graduates acquire the skills to design, prepare and conduct effective training sessions or even extensive training and education programmes. They gather practical knowledge on effective learning techniques and for handling difficult situations, particularly with regard to intercultural trainings. Successful participants receive a CCA Certificate which certifies in both German and English that the holder is qualified to lead effective learning processes using creative pedagogical techniques and esteeming support.
The „Train the Trainer in Business (CCA)“ is an internationally recognized, advanced training concept certified by the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (CCA) and the Association of German Chambers (DIHK).

They are based on the insights of Accelerated Learning, modern neuroscience and educational constructivism.

Further education and Consulting
It all started with a trip to France to learn the language. Today, I am still fascinated by discovering unknown people and places. My vocation as a trainer provides me with the ideal combination: meeting people and travelling.
Training requires constant mental presence. It demands alertness and a permanent awareness of what’s happening in the group. I relax between these phases of intense concentration with sport. In fact, I would even describe myself as a thoroughbred sportsman, having actively participated in many different types of sports. Or enjoyed them as a spectator. When I travel abroad, I always take my running shoes with me. For there just might be a running event where I’m going. As a pleasure runner, I seize the opportunity to take part – be it a run by the sea, in a local park or up a mountain.
My second passion lies in fostering a culture of appreciation, attentiveness and respect between people. When training, I step back and set my antennae to receive. For me it is important to know what excites my participants, what they need right now and how I can best reach them. For to my mind, adult learning entails 15% trainer, and 85% participant activity. Empathy is generally an indispensable trait for a trainer. However in an international context, it is even more crucial. You can never read up on all of the cultural characteristics of a host country – sometimes you have to rely on your sensitivity and intuition. My third focus topic completes the circle: Understanding. To this end, I am fascinated by a journey of a special kind – the journey into the human mind. * 1955, in a committed relationship, two children
