  • 5. What my clients say “Not only did Mr. Burkhardt deliver content of tremendous value, he also managed to address each of the participants in our seminar individually with a very accurate assessment of their situation. His advice helped me to change my thinking completely. His innovative and very creative way of approaching familiar problems by suggesting specific solutions to each and every participant individually makes him an extraordinarily talented trainer and coach. His impressive academic expertise in organizational psychology and his rare talent to translate this expertise into applicable knowledge have made Mr. Burkhardt’s workshop an experience with long lasting effects and have led to sustainable change. I can wholeheartedly recommend Christoph Burkhardt’s consulting and training services and am looking very forward to working with him again in the future.” Fabio Olivotti Head of Communication Strategy Design BMW Group Design “Christoph possesses the hallmark characteristics of the ideal coach. He has an intuitive grasp of human relations and his passion for creativity is admittedly contagious. I attended a 3-day workshop on presentation techniques and Christoph easily created an open atmosphere to stimulate discussions and as a result of him enjoying what he does, I was most able to benefit from the course!” J. Angus "I also attended one of Christoph's self-organization classes, and I had fun. While his organization technique was helpful and elaborate, it was his interest in me as a person that impressed me the most. When I had an... let's call it emotional reaction to one of the exercises, he sought me out afterwards to make sure I was ok. That kind of commitment really baffled me." Clio U.
