Hi, my name is Cosima Laube and public speaking is one of my passions. My talks build bridges between tech, organization and people, they inspire and they motivate. Besides that, I am a freelance (Agile) Navigation Coach for People, Teams and Organizations and also work as a Trainer & Facilitator (with agile-living).
“Cosima has a very unique stage-presence. Calm and at the same time very powerful.”[feedback after a “Mindful Leadership” session, 2019]
“I really loved this talk – it was a highlight for me during the conference. I thought Cosima was very brave to not only talk about her colleague’s story but also her own. It was really inspiring. […] It’s a really important topic that affects our mental health and everyone should listen to this talk. Thank you Cosima.”[feedback on “Gratitude & Positive Psychology in business”, 2019]
