Sophia Gruner is an energetic and charismatic trainer and coach. Educate means “lead out” and Sophia leads people to improve their communication skills.
When you work with people, what you know can be your biggest pitfall. People naturally make assumptions about other people and their worldview, as well as about themselves. This leads to challenges and misunderstandings in communication-especially when you're also talking about different values, attitudes, generations, genders or nationalities.
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 qualifications 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.
Leverage culture for business success
Sophia heeft met en in verschillende landen en culturen in Azië, Europa en Noord-Amerika gewerkt.

Be it a cliché or a guilty pleasure: I LOVE Deutsche Schlagermusik. Two beats and I get highly enthusiastic. My favorite singer: Andrea Berg.
