Raoul Sonnenberg

Senior consultant
Been with cormens since the very beginning

Consulting focus:
Leadership & soft skills training, cultural change

Raoul sees the positive, the genuine, the human in everyone and everything. Handbrakes come off in his environment. It is not surprising that his training sessions with leaders and professionals foster an atmosphere of trust and experimentation in which a great deal of energy is released. Solutions and pragmatic tips for highly relevant practical situations have free rein. The same goes for Raoul when he explores nature on his bike. If a river gets in his way, he simply carries his bike across. There is something good in everything. Raoul recognises this immediately.
