Ingo Leßmann

Managing Director

“The continual connectedness of communication and opinion-forming is radically changing Corporate Communication. It is necessary – both internally and externally – to integrate the interests of the different stakeholders into the corporate strategy. In this context, traditional concepts often fall short or no longer apply at all. New skills in the areas of strategy, processes, dialogue or social media are in demand. We advise and support both management and communication departments and offer guidance – in the daily madness of regular business as well as in exceptional circumstances.“
