I am a trainer, coach and consultant in change processes. I support managers and teams with increasing their effectiveness in communication, leadership and cooperation. I am passionate about
letting people discover and mobilize their inner power via their physical intelligence, a dimension that is rapidly growing in the area of behaviour and culture change in organisations.

Pamela Ann Burkhalter
Originally a lawyer, I have been running my business as an executive coach and facilitator, designing and delivering coaching,leadership and change programs since 2003. Life has led and continues to lead me to many places, geographically and metaphorically. My work is very much about partnering multi-cultural clients on their journeys in today’s complex and constant change environments as individuals and groups, raising consciousness, challenging them to find power and potential from within. I love holding space with stillness, passion and play, so that people can show up fully and meaningful conversations and extraordinary results can happen.

Michael Gambs
I’m passionate about sustainable change and transformation, and have been involved in driving large and complex change initiatives in multinational companies for the last 15 years, supporting senior teams in bringing their vision and strategy to life. Initially trained as a management consultant, I’ve embraced over the last years a different approach to improve effectiveness in the corporate world, focusing primarily on people rather than processes or systems. Currently in charge of global leadership development at Swarovski, my focus is to ensure we develop leaders that can balance the business focus with the people focus, and are equipped with the tools and mindset necessary to thrive in an uncertain and complex world. (Fluent French, English and German)

Sarah Clark
As an independent consultant, facilitator and trainer, I work with diverse organizations and cultures to support teams and individuals in thinking and communicating clearly about what matters to them and in working together effectively. I particularly enjoy using visual thinking tools and mountain landscapes — both real and metaphorical — to connect people and create space for dialogue, insight and inspiration. And, in my second profession as a mountain leader, I love sharing my passion for the Swiss mountains…
