Sophia Gruner Intercultural communication Trainer & Consultant
What you "know" is the challenge
Know your culture, enable your culture
Sophia Gruner is an energetic and charismatic educator and trainer. Educate means “lead out” and Sophia leads people to improve their cross-cultural and communication skills.
When working across cultures, what you “know” about your own culture can be your greatest pitfall, because it is easy to make the same assumptions about other cultures.
Together with Sophia, you develop the awareness, knowledge and skills you need to work with success in culturally diverse environments.
Sophia’s drive is to ‘think bigger’. Leaders, entrepreneurs, public officials and professionals with a forward-looking mindset, who see the relevance of personal growth and strong networks, click well with Sophia.
Sophia has a background in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, as well as a Master's degree in Business Administration. She combines this background with her role as intercultural coach and mental trainer. For more than 10 years, Sophia has worked in diverse international projects. She has also coached, taught and supervised many aspiring professionals.
Inspiration and life changing moments just happen. A major life changing flame was kindled during my education as a mental coach. This eventually led me to the TEDxVenlo stage. Without this stage and two particular people, I wouldn’t have found my self-fulfillment: intercultural training and public speaking.
