Born in Bavaria and raised as a European, I was privileged to experience Europe from the inside-out. I have worked in five continents with the World Bank and the German government’s development organization for 12 years, with 7 years in academic institutions in Germany, Switzerland, USA and China. These experiences have not only reinforced my deeply rooted identity as a European, but by working with entrepreneurs, NGOs and governments, I have learned about various approaches to forming public narratives, the challenges in public leadership, the absolute necessity to focus on sustainable development that is green, inclusive and competitive (as well as myriad excuses not to put the money where the mouth is) and the diversity needed to foster public dialogues. Accidental European contributes to a great dialogue in Europe, and it is my pleasure to be able to add my voice.
