About Your Trainer

Event Safety Is all about having the right people in the right place at the right time and venues, associations and agencies trust my experience to reach this goal.

Always looking to improve the standard of Event Health & Safety Worldwide, I appreciate opportunities to immerse myself in new locations and experience different cultures and people.

Passing on my expertise at interactive trainings, talks and seminars for professional event staff on topics such as crowd safety, risk management, and event venue safety is my passion. I take great pride in speaking regularly at events and conferences like Prolight and Sound, IMEX and the Middle East Event Show.

To reach those that don’t have access to training, I’ve written two books: „The Event Safety Book“ and “Crowd Management Made Easy“ that are globally available. These help event professionals around the world make their events safer.

As a member of the Event Safety Alliance, I’m participating in creating the first worldwide recognized standard on event and crowd safety that will be used by governments to create country-specific event safety legislation.

For more than 40 years I’ve been instrumental in shaping the German event industry. Working together with my colleagues in the SevenCenters think tank (the seven biggest convention centers in Germany), I helped transform Event Health and Safety to the level it’s at today in Germany.

I took part in creating the formal training curriculum for German Event Technicians. To this day I’m still on the examiners’ board.

My last station, before setting up Eventknowhow, was as technical director for the largest event location in Germany, DüsseldorfCongress. My leadership skills and abilities created a high performing team of event professionals that staged major events.

For more than 6 years I represented the interests of the European Association of Event Centers (EVVC) in Brussels in regulatory and normative matters.

A bachelor’s degree in „Event Technology Management and Operations“ gives me the theoretical knowledge necessary to provide Event Safety Consultancy worldwide.

Interested in collaborating with other visionary leaders in the event industry and sharing my passion for providing excellence in venue management, I welcome new networking opportunities and invite you to connect with me!
