Maike & Lilli are the directors of the first Global Woman Breakfast Club in Frankfurt, Germany, opening up on October 14, 2018.
Independence, empowerment, strength of purpose– these are the keywords describing Lilli best. On her journey, she had the luck to meet people who mentored and supported her- teachers in school, supervisors and seniors in her business life empowering her to take leadership roles, progress with her career plans and become a mentor herself.
She was born in the middle of nowhere in a very small village in Siberia and migrated to Germany at the age of 7. Growing up between two cultures has been one of her greatest assets guiding her path. At the age of 23 Lilli was promoted as the first female Customer Service team leader within the company. She is passionate about leading people, teams and projects internationally. Her ability to motivate and encourage helped her and others to go the extra mile for professional and personal success.
By providing new processes, tools and structures and to see how they are implemented by the teams makes Lilli always go above the standard. By using her professional know-how she is targeting the best results for her people, customers, stakeholders and herself. Lilli always stays creative, curious, flexible and innovative. She challenges her and other on the way how work is done.
Various successful international projects, where Lilli could implement new tools, build teams and achieve significant growth, developed her to a great coach, leader, Business strategist and Sales Manager. To think outside the box without losing the view for the most important helps her to identify great opportunities and make the right decisions.
Born and raised in Germany, Maike discovered her love for other countries, cultures and languages at an early age and has since made it her mission to study new countries and languages and change her life on a regular basis. Her international endeavours took her first to student exchanges to Australia and Canada. During her studies of international business she learned Arabic and spent six months in Cairo, Egypt working for a German governmental organisation helping to promote the German culture. Her positive attitude to life and people, willingness to adapt and change, her sense of orientation and problem-solving skills allowed her to travel the country freely.
Her further studies made her obtain degrees from Germany, Ireland and Brazil where she lived, studied, travelled and learned Portuguese.
Maike’s business background is in finance, pricing, analytics, tools and systems. She helped design, develop, test, implement, introduce and support tools, travelling worldwide to conduct workshops and trainings to empower and ensure processes.
It is easy for her to see connections in a wide variety of topics and to draw conclusions, think of solutions and start implementing them. As she is an open, communicative person, a good listener with a great deal of empathy and trust in others, she helps to install that feeling in others, so they can develop themselves.
Maike’s character traits of openness, flexibility and adaptability make her easy to adapt to changes in her environment, staying true to her values, fighting for herself, her life and health and others.
