Tanja has been at home in the global business events industry for 25 years in senior positions at Maritz Inc., the TUI Group and Hapag-Lloyd.
In 2004 she founded her own MICE PR consultancy. She has been a brand ambassador for the IMEX Group since 2011.
After completing her bachelor in tourism business studies, she completed a master's degree in integrated communication, further education as a a PR consultant, a systemic business coach, in CSR and employer branding.
Tanja loves to strengthen, connect and bring people and organizations to their potential, seeing herself as a bridge builder, initiator and networker - between profit and non-profit, generations and cultures.
She believes that the MICE industry has the potential - but also the responsibility - to bring about global change in favor of the SDGs (UN Sustainable Development Goals). That's why she founded MICE Impact and the MICE Ladies Community in 2019. In her role as Brand Ambassador for the IMEX Group, she is a co-founder of the “She Means Business” conference, the conference for women in the global meeting industry.
One of her believes is to always follow her heart and intuition, professionally and privately. She lives with her son in her happy place at Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria. Sports and outdoor experiences are an important source of energy for her and she always loves to challenge herself and others out there in the nature.
