Creating Networks for Success
I connect economic players between Germany and Hungary and build bridges between the two countries with my connections. Equally important to me is connecting Women in the economy across companies, regions and hierarchies. I am happy to share my experience as a speaker and in panel discussions. Please contact me if you are interested.

Hungarian Interchurch Aid for Education Foundation
Hungarian Interchurch Aid is one of Hungary’s largest charity organizations. Since 1991 HIA has built a nationwide network of over 80 social services and has gained decades of experience in international assistance provided in more than 40 countries. Besides its wide-range of offered services, education has become a defining value of HIA’s local and international development work: accomplished projects from the past decades include all levels of education, from kindergarten to adult vocational training.
In 2020, HIA aims to take another step in the field of training by establishing the HIA for Education Foundation. The Foundation will bring together HIA’s expanding training agenda in Hungary with prominent public representatives and experts in the Supervisory Board of the Foundation.
One of the Foundation’s first focus areas is HIA’s large-scale educational project: establishing a Vocational Technical School with the highest level of vocational training in Hungary. The school will take place in Biatorbágy – an important industrial centre of the region. The vocational school provides specializations that offers highly marketable knowledge in economics: logistics, finance/ accounting and information technology. The educational project is carried out in close cooperation with the Government of Hungary, the Ministry of Technology and Innovation and the Velux Foundations.

"Networks help to advance a topic, develop a project and to sharpen and reflect on one’s formation of opinion."
Why did I create MTTconnect?
During my many years of operative professional life, I met many people from different environments in Germany and Eastern Europe - especially in Hungary. This experience taught me how important contacts and networks are for my own success.
Networks help to advance a topic, develop a project and to sharpen and reflect on one’s formation of opinion. Under the label MTTconnect I enjoy bringing my diverse connections and networks into selected organizations and committees.
My goal is to connect people in order to successfully master common tasks. In doing so, I am particularly interested in strengthening the friendship and trust between East and West in the long term. This is the key to a united and economically strong Europe.
