Katharina Grau
Communications Consultant & Coach 
"I am convinced that everyone can find their own way in this world – my aim is to provide you with the time and space to ‘hear yourself think’."


More than 14 years consulting in the communications and advertising industry as a team leader and project manager have honed my communiction skills, and my ability to recognise and utilise strengths and potential.

I have studied and lived in the USA, Denmark and Portugal, and also travelled to over 40 countries, across 5 continents. I’ve experienced the forces of acculturation, and questioned in which way, and at what pace I needed to go.

These experiences allow me to support my clients with empathy, authenticity, thinking outside the box, and humour.


Coaching, workshops & training can be conducted in both German and English. I also provide Skype consultations and follow ups for expats after they have moved abroad.
