Who I am
Hi, my name is Silke Kunert, I am a
passionate IT & Business Consultant
During my 20+ years career, I built a strong skillset in IT organisation, collaboration, international project management, SAP implementation and leading intercultural teams.
My colleagues describe me as an emphatic, very authentic and pragmatic person, a women of action with the skill to ’slice the elephant’. I’m a very good listener and able to understand complex topics very quickly.
While working together, you’ll get a reliable, very solution oriented, positive thinking and customer oriented partner. We will have a lot of pleasure in our projects.
My InspirationWhat drives me
My father taught me that you can never ask too many questions. Getting to the bottom of the things, in order to better understand and solve them is my mission. While working with me, you will soon discover this.
Turning the impossible into the possible is a key driver for me and this motivates me to bring your projects to success even more.
Overall I am striving for business excellence and customer satisfaction in a digital world.
