Anke Krahn (born in 1971) holds a German diploma in economics and combines broad knowledge in marketing and systemic consultancy competence.

After an apprenticeship, she worked in England before studying economics at University of Göttingen, majoring in marketing and economy psychology. Afterwards, she worked as a product manager at Kraft Foods, e.g. for brands like Milka, Kaffee Hag and Jacobs Krönung. With a two-year sailing trip, Anke Krahn fulfilled a dream before she became self-employed management consultant in 2001.

Anke Krahn coaches heads of marketing from multinational corporations as well as medium-sized enterprises. Her passion is innovation. Most important are a strong brand, brand value and a good portion of common sense. As a certified systemic business coach, she studies further constantly.

Anke Krahn lives in Hamburg, loves to dance Tango Argentino and running along the Elbe River. Hamburg´s Kunsthalle (art museum) and Thalia-Theater hold a lot of inspiration for her.
