Q&A with Katharina
Describe yourself in three words.
Quick-witted, creative, crazy-about-soccer.
What is the biggest opportunity for Kekst CNC and the communications industry?
We never communicated more and said less. As consultants for strategic communications, we can drive communications forward by leading it back to what really matters: clear messages which are relevant, make a difference, and tell a story.
Who or what has been the biggest influence on your career?
My home town. I grew up in a small village in southwestern Germany, where church officials, local councilmen and associations engaged in an endless power struggle. So I got accustomed to stakeholder engagement, reputation management and other aspects of strategic communications long before I even realized it.
What do you like most about Kekst CNC?
The passion for communication, the desire for challenges and the aspiration to never stand still.
Why did you choose Kekst CNC?
Kekst CNC is rooted in a firm value system without being stuck, we think innovatively without building castles in the air, and we meet at eye level without losing sight of the essentials.
