Eva Engel, business economist and former marine, is a trainer and speaker for leadership, motivation and change. During her service in the German Navy, she gained many years of experience in team and training management. Having served on board a frigate for several years, she knows exactly what it means to work and live in a confined space. Leading under these special conditions means dealing with unusual situations and different types of people. Further stations on her career path include various positions in the management of different commercial enterprises. From start-ups and SMEs to corporate groups, with and without personnel responsibility. Her clients include medium-sized companies as well as international corporations. In her seminars and presentations, she inspires with best-practice examples from her military career. For Eva Engel, it is easy to create understandable parallels between military structures and business activities, to mirror agile leadership methods of the German Armed Forces in the business world and to support companies in developing their own leadership culture.
