Ladies Talk

What kind of positive changes does this special time bring about - with all challenges? What gives us strength in this crisis? How do we emerge from this strengthened? And what can go, what can stay? 


Tanja has very personal dialogues with smart women in the business events industry and beyond - about what is currently moving them. How they personally and professionally deal with the crisis. And about the opportunity and need for ongoing development.


In our dialogue Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group, tells me why she sees this crisis as a great chance for clarity and innovation of all types. We discuss leadership in the 21st century, the importance of a positive business culture and why the leaders of tomorrow have to walk their talk. We also talk about collaboration and empathy, why the last months shone a new light on resilience and why PlanetIMEX would not have been possible neither without this crisis nor without her great team. 

Liane Katz, Co-founder and CEO of, a coding school for children from age 3+, talks to me about what gives her strength in this crisis and how she managed - together with her team of flexible working mothers - to digitize her start-up within a week and achieved an 81% increase in sales in April. She also tells why she is a big fan of women's business networks and why she thinks women must support each other, especially throughout the pressures of Covid.
