For Ralf, who has a Master's Degree in Business & Engineering, designing, building and deploying communications as a strategic asset of any organisation is one of the most exciting challenges in daily work. In a PR career spanning almost 20 years, he's seen that every successful business has a goldmine of interesting stories to tell, and describes the giw ethos thus: "Use both proven and refreshingly novel PR tools, methodically, to build a coherent story your audience can really relate to". Methodical and refreshing describe equally well what Ralf does in his spare time, namely running, cycling and skiing. And, when relaxing, he enjoys reading and travelling to refresh the soul and inspire for success.×
