VHP CONSULTING is a renowned advisory for strategic communications, stakeholder management, and public affairs.
I advise boards of directors and executives – personally, efficiently and with the highest quality of care. I see myself not only as a consultant, but as a sparring partner on an equal footing.
Unique expertise, decades of experience in leading positions in politics and in national and international corporations as well as an extensive network in business, politics & media are the foundation of my work.
I stand for integrity and transparency. Authenticity, resourcefulness and foresight set me apart.
In order to be effective, strategies must be understood and accepted by a wide range of stakeholders. I guide you through this process – with strategic, transparent and authentic communication, clear positioning and comprehensive stakeholder management.
Companies are in the public eye. A vast variety of target groups influence the opinion market with their interests and perspectives. You need to identify relevant stakeholders and involve them continuously. I ensure your messages reach the right audience and your public image is strengthened sustainably. Credibility and authenticity are the most important tools here.
Continuous, authentic representation of interests ensures the ability to act and creates competitive advantages. I give you a voice in the political arena, accompany you through political processes in a goal-oriented approach and enable you to shape issues to your benefit. In doing so, I rely on transparent communication with decision-makers.
A trusting client relationship in my eyes depends on outstanding quality of consulting and professionalism. My work is based on core values and I am committed to the highest professional standards.
I am subject to the Code of Conduct of the Austrian Public Affairs Association, the German Society for Political Consulting and the European Public Affairs Consultancies’ Association.
You want to be in the media but don’t know how to do it? You have a lot to say but can’t get your message across?
You want to have a say in political decision-making but don’t know where to start?
Then you are at the right place. I look forward to talking to you!
