Curriculum Vitae

Managing Director, Organization Enabler and Speaker

Within her more than 20 years of professional experience in international strategy consultancies and business enterprises at a domestic and international level, the focus is on corporate and organizational development and collaboration.

After years of accompanying top executives, she is very familiar with the day-to-day work in corporate groups and medium-sized companies. As an executive herself, she has experienced the “typical joys and sorrows” of her role and therefore provides authentic and pragmatic support.

Top Ten Consultancy in Europe for Change Management

The US magazine HR Tech Lookout spoke with Irina Hagen and formulated this successful article: As idealistic as it sounds, companies reflect society and vice versa. There is a direct link between how companies are run and society more broadly, where many changes are currently taking place, accelerated by technological and political turmoil. How colleagues interact in a workplace reflects social behavior on a societal level. Companies can take advantage of this insight.
