Details zum/r Referent/in Nike Gaertner
Vita: Nike Gaertner is a certified Executive Coach with over 30 years of international business experience and a passion for developing inclusive and authentic leaders.
Having enjoyed a career in the corporate telecommunications industry, working in procurement and sales, she decided to apply her experience to uncharted territories. She started her own business and pivoted into the organisational development space, designing and facilitating leadership development programmes across diverse industries, sectors and geographies. Her client base ranged from young associates, to high potential and senior executives, who typically worked in multi-national corporations, medium-sized companies and start-ups.

Preferring the impact of engaging with clients on an individual rather than group basis, Nike pivoted once again and set up her own private coaching practice. Her target clients are senior executives in Corporates, SMEs and Start-ups who wrestle with the underlying anxieties and vulnerability associated with trying to be authentic and inclusive leaders. Her coaching commitment is transformational not transactional. She provides a collaborative, respectful and supportive environment, conducive to holding unvarnished conversations, exploring and challenging existing thinking and considering new perspectives. She is never afraid to name the elephant in the room!

She also works as an associate coach for Ashridge Hult Business School

In addition to coaching, Nike works with Lollipop Mentoring UK, whose mission is to address the inequality and lack of black female representation in leadership roles.
