Hi, I’m Nadine.
I Catalyze Things.

Award-winning business strategist, conceptual creative, sustainability advocate (ESG/SDGs) – in short: a renaissance woman with a “science & art mindset”.

In my 15+ years career I’ve had the privilege to directly advising CEOs and executive managers from the technology, lifestyle and financial industries across the world on how to harness digital innovations, sustainability, purpose-driven leadership and strategic growth initiatives – resulted in significant more revenue for them.

I strategized and executed digital services and brands that have been awarded. I also created market entry strategies, creatives, and secured partnerships that exceeded clients’ expectations. In 2016 I strategized and launched Germany’s first innovative IT-bootcamp education company which operates in four cities today.

But when it came time to embark on a shift in career, I yearned to get more involved in solutions that would put people and planet first. Because in 2016 I’ve noticed that the most needed innovations and solutions for us on this planet – those to fight and adapt to the climate crisis, and those to enable quality education and equal opportunities – were either underfunded, mismanaged or not on the radar in the investment industry.

So I started to study the United Nations global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), their measurements and ESG investing; connected with impact investors worldwide as well as with sustainability-led innovators and industry expert.

Fast-forward to today, I’m the founder of JUST DAMN RIGHT, an international hybrid platform at the intersection of sustainability-led investing, culture and education. There, I join forces with forward-thinking leaders and innovators on advanced solutions that create positive impact.

I furthermore advise executives on strategic matters and overhaul their products and brands as Co-CCSO. And I share my learned experiences through different formats to help empower the next generation of responsible leaders and to increase gender parity.

My goal is to help people to live up to their full potentials and to engage in life with awareness and meaningful connections. I do this with inspirational formats and executive advisory as well as by joining forces with forward-thinking leaders for sustainability-led ventures through my international platform JUST DAMN RIGHT.

My Surreal Journey of “The First”

Some Examples of My Portfolio

2007

I feel humble that my first strategic advisory job right after university turned Steve Jobs into a fan of a client’s product.

2008

My advisory turned MAN Trucks & Bus into the first international transportation brand that started to publicly embed its business in smart city living, electric cars and energy-efficient transportation as we start to implement only today. I advised senior executives on strategic management and conceptualized an immersive future transport scenario which was showcased at one of the world’s leading trade fairs.

2012/13

The first mobile app for wich I advised on brand and product strategy secured seed funding and was awarded “Best App of the Year 2013” by The Next Web.

2015

The first European market entry strategy that I advised a US-headquartered startup at growth stage on exceeded executives’ expectations. I facilitated a strategic partnership with an industry leader that allowed the US company to not only expand to Europe but also to the Middle East. That partnership increased brand equity and also generated significant traffic over a period of three years.

2016

I set up Germany’s first innovative IT-bootcamp education company in order to address the talent shortage and gender gap in STEM. It was my first business that I strategized and executed end-to-end, from branding and curriculum design to operational systems, online marketing and growing an international team – all within six months. Today the company operates out of four cities in Germany.

2020

I conceptualized and launched the first independent, international awards that honor women from all walks of life, whose impact-led solutions challenge the status quo and address the world’s most pressing issues through innovation and vision.
