My name is Ellen Preussing and I've founded Lightwings in 2014. I believe, that personal development has no ending and is helping individuals to further succeed in their lives and with their professional careers.
Now, more than ever, leadership, self-reflection, communication, flexibility, change management, creativity and a constantly growing know-how are the foundations for success.
I find great joy in accelerating the personal evolution of those, who are willing to go the extra mile for learning – also about themselves.
Development and interest
I like straight forward and pragmatic training approaches, as they enable participants to quickly understand and apply new thinking methods.
For many years, I've worked as a group and senior team leader, heading a large, heterogeneous team at Novartis, a global international pharma company in Switzerland and worked in academic environment. Already during my time as Director at Novartis, I was engaged as a mentor and coach.
I've gained my degree in veterinary medicine at Hanover Veterinary School in 2000 and continued my own personal development with a focus on: general psychology (University &VH Basel/CH), industrial psychology (FH Hamburg/D), drug development (ECPM), coaching (CSF), executive leadership trainings (e.g. Harvard, Oliver Whyman Group) and teaching (IH London & SGD), and still continue to learn.
I'm convinced that education and your personal development has no ending!
