Hi, I am Annika!
I am a buoyant, multi-lingual sustainability-focussed Business Consultant with an affinity for project and operations management.
My path has led me from Germany, over Great Britain to South Africa and has provided me with a broad spectrum of international work experience in all kinds and sizes of projects (corporate, NPO, research, event, urban development - you name it.).
Before, as well as during my working career, I graduated from three different Universities with a Honours in Business and Management, followed by a MSc in Sustainability & Consulting as well as a MSc in Sustainable Development & Humanitarian Aid. Therefore, I would describe myself is a strategic-thinking, multi-lingual Consultant and Environmental Impact Assessment Practitioner (IEMA), with a lot of passion for preserving people and the planet. I am experienced in operations and project management, CSR and non-financial reporting, as well as community engagement & have been doing a great deal of direct marketing and operations for various SMEs. My strengths lie in improving existing systems and operations according to you and your organisation's needs, within the boundaries of the environment, and as a contribution to society.
With AQ Consulting I have been putting my focus on working with small to medium-sized businesses to enhance their triple-bottom-line as well as their overall operational capacity through various improvements in their strategies & systems, backends, social-media appearance and network.
