Judith Stemerdink-Herret

Judith is a organizational consultant, trainer and business administrator. After ten years in the Austrian private sector with focus on controlling and finance management she started offering her skills in emergency and development work in Africa and Asia. She lived and worked seven years in West and East Africa. She combines program management with capacity building for employees and partners. In order to create sustainable transformation processes her approach is interdisciplinary, including multi-stakeholders and loops of dialogues.

„Being abroad has changed my cultural views of right and wrong. From these observations I recognized that the most important step in development of complex changes is not only education. Above all it is the creation of a safe space in which people can have open appreciative dialogues.“
