Coaching for expatriates and their partners

Enjoy a purposeful life and work abroad

You are in a new, challenging situation in your life? Change offers a great opportunity: to reflect on one’s own situation, to develop further and to re-define one’s goals. Life and Business Coaching helps you to change your viewpoint, to create clarity about what you want to achieve, and to set the steps along the way. I work with expatriates or their partners who want to exploit the possibilities to shape their own professional or life situation.

I help you in preparing and leading successful conferences and workshops, from a thorough planning and preparation, through holding the conference until summarizing the results and future steps.


When I was working as manager for and with international companies such as Airbus Helicopters, Amadeus, Bertelsmann, Boeing, Sabre and The Leading Hotels of the World, I was introduced to agile project management and lean management. Those techniques help to improve processes and introduced me to tools like the Kaizen newsletter, which helps to implement continuous improvement in business processes. I adapted this tool, not only for business improvements but also for positive change in personal life and I kicked off a personal quality initiative.

After moving to Asia, I realized that many expatriates whom I met or their partners struggled to live life to their fullest potential. I saw expatriates, not achieving their individual or company goals or getting worried what comes next after their current assignment. Some of their spouses lost orientation or sense in life, missing own opportunities apart from organizing the household and getting even more frustrated when their partners spend long hours in the office, feeling exposed to boredom and uselessness. This often ends in conflict or even termination of the assignment abroad.

“Yes, I embrace change and if you do so as well, let’s work and celebrate together.”


Having experienced this situation myself, I set off to become a life and business coach and I am currently in the process of completing an official coaching certification in due course. Therefore, I extended my 20 years’ experience as globally acting project- and product manager and head of department, with coaching techniques like the GROW model, NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), goal mapping and so forth. I help managers in achieving their goals and their partners in defining and pursuing their ambitions.

Next to my experience as manager for international companies, where I worked with customers in China, England, Ivory Coast, India, Japan, Mali, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, and the United States, I started as trainee in a German bank, lived and studied abroad, became a bike courier, was a tournament dancer, completed a Tough Mudder race and hold a private SPL license as a microlight pilot. Besides my activity in coaching ambitious individuals, I also hold a certificate from the BJS, Berlin Journalist School for facilitating workshops and conferences.

What others say about me

Gregor with his open-minded, friendly and warm personality as well as plenty of life experience makes you feel in good hands when looking for a coach. He is an empathetic guide through the unresolved ‘territory’ in one’s life where one discovers new perspectives but walks away with very practical action items. I found my sessions with Gregor extremely helpful.

From the beginning of our partnership, we were highly impressed by Gregor’s perfect and proactive organization and communication. All our clients highly appreciated him taking care of their needs and answering their various questions immediately and in detail. He made a big difference for the participants of our trainings and helped them develop their skills and knowledge about their reservation and sales system to be able to serve their guests as they deserve.
