“I had the pleasure of listening to Elke's vivid expose at a "Resilience Workshop" for our leaders at BESIX in Dubai. Her story contains a lot of “aha”- points and allowed me to connect the dots on certain challenges that I encounter in our daily work environment. Her interesting and highly relevant presentation is the best invitation to read one of her books. Definitely worth some "focus"-time!”

General Manager Besix Construct Dubai
