Birgit Görtz

Freelance Consultant

“Content and influencer marketing, storytelling – I do not throw around buzzwords, but translate our clients’ main themes into strategy and content. This applies to the press release as well as the TV interview and internal communication. Ultimately, it is always about getting a message across – my strengths are finding the right format, the appropriate medium and the adequate approach.“
