Ina von Spies
Positioning companies clearly in the market and raising their public profile has been part of my profession since 1997. As press spokesperson and senior vice president corporate communications, these are activities I’ve performed for a government ministry, a business development agency and medium-sized listed companies. Since 2013, I’ve been a freelance consultant aiding medium-sized firms in particular to present themselves clearly (both internally and externally) and also to develop a suitable leadership culture. In addition, I devise, plan and moderate events and workshops. My approach is exemplified by methods of facilitation.
Since 2015, I’ve been doing pitch training for startups, initially as a mentor for SpinLab in Leipzig. Since 2020, I’ve also been involved in promoting sustainability as a partner in Impact Hub Leipzig. This is how I first met my co-founder, Katja Käseberg – which led to the idea of combining our skills and abilities to benefit sustainable, independent startups as well as seasoned employers.
