Managing Director

The agency was founded in 2000 in Munich. To this day, I remain absolutely passionate about leading consense communications GmbH. Consumed by the desire to shape events and by enthusiasm for the subjects and personalities that jointly make up our client base. Meaningful communication is the key to it all - because that is the only way that 'better' is brought to life. 

Portrait Claudia Thaler

Enthusiastic about communication for over 20 years. Loves her job as a consultant, enjoys thinking laterally and ahead. Problems are challenges for her – the more complex, the better. Interested in science and how the world works. Systemic coach, likes viewing things on a meta level. Passionate movie and series lover with a red carpet in her office. Thinks in pictures and likes to express herself through these.

Consultants

What you get from us is good advice – from personalities who command a wide range of knowledge, not only in the subject area of communication. You get it from people who think like engineers, act like heads of controlling, and understand their role as being that of relationship managers.

Portrait Stephanie Baumann

Stephanie Baumann

The German media and PR landscape is well familiar to her as a communication scientist. A Bavarian with a sunny disposition, one who keeps her calm even when stress threatens to take over everything. She loves to move and indeed often thinks in terms of the moving image. Relishes challenges and is known to lunge into extreme situations or even leap out of aircraft at 3,000 m. Adores the contrast between city life and country life. A child of the Bavarian forest, she prides herself on that ꞌrolling Rꞌ characteristic of speech in her part of Bavaria.

Portrait Rainer Frömmel

His strengths include bringing authenticity to the handling of all manner of social topics. With digital as his focus and brand image as his passion, he has won many prizes for customers. Knows everything about good stories conveyed in words and pictures – a quality that consense clients value very highly.

Portrait Malte Gausemeier

Malte Gausemeier

Graduate media manager and also a globetrotter. Has lived in London and Peking but only feels truly at home in Munich. Keeps a cool head – not only as a bartender. Attaches a lot of importance to details and good taste and is always on the lookout for culinary highlights. His favourite task is to provide advice and expertise to clients in all situations, with a wealth of humour and strong command of his subject matter.

Portrait Miri Köbner

Miri Köbner

A graduate in philosophy and the German language and literature, she is in love with language games and thought games. She enjoys viewing the world through a whole variety of pairs of glasses – and was like this long before the term ꞌtarget-group-appropriateꞌ became part of her world. Understands the most complex subject-matter but cannot understand indifference in the face of intolerance. An optimist, inexhaustibly curious about people, topics and discussions. Fastidious in her appreciation of all manner of fine things – yet totally uncomplicated in her day-to-day dealings with people.

Portrait Nikolas Kohlars

Nikolas Kohlars

Enthusiastic optimiser of conversions and A/B tester. Provides support to small and mid-sized firms as they each implement their digital strategy. Having started as a placement student and then trainee, he is a consense bedrock. Alongside work commitments, he is eagerly forging plans for his donkey farm.

Portrait Mattias Naumann

Mattias Naumann

Passionate writer. Because of this he received better marks for his German A-levels than the classmates, who had actually read the book. As a graduate political scientist and historian with many years of experience as an editor on automotive topics and passionate about football, he also focuses on his personal interests at work. Today he is aware of how fascinating topics that he had not dealt with before can be. Brings humour and composure to advising customers on all text-related topics.

Portrait Wera Otterbach

Has been travelling the world for as long as she can remember, drawing inspiration from encounters and discussions.

Portrait Andrea Plücke

Andrea Plücke

This graduate in English is on top of her game not only in that language but also in the kitchen. Whether it’s cooking or baking – it’s just gotta be delicious! In her leisure time she is one for the great (and elevated) outdoors – when the mountain calls, she answers. She takes on complex topics with stamina, ambition and an eye for detail. She’s very happy to get stuck into the task and honesty is crucial to her. Her motto: "Nothing comes from nothing!"

Portrait Analena Rischpler

Analena Rischpler

Making the switchover from journalism and into the agency, she brought her passion for language with her. In her mind she is a graduate in political science and communication science, in her heart a creative designer. She envelops complex topics in simple words; her clear words are woven together to shape convincing arguments. Mostly to be found outdoors savouring the joys of nature, preferably in company. Her most cherished gift is having the world explained to her through the eyes of her children.

Portrait Nina Saupe

A diploma-qualified cultural-studies graduate, an all-purpose weapon with an eager love of languages and a lot of passion for mobility-related topics.

Blessed with the talent to cast light that penetrates a dense fog of lack of clarity, she brings the topic being discussed down to the heart of the matter. Injects a sense of security into a situation – and is also an enthusiastic baker of cakes! Asks the right questions and is tenacious, bringing finely-tuned sensitivity to bear in judging a situation.

Portrait Lucy Ströher

Lucy Ströher

A student on the ꞌdual-studiesꞌ programme established in Germany, she alternates between three-month periods spent in higher education and on her work placement here respectively. Sometimes finds herself battling with points of the compass and means of transport in the big city – yet she masters her assignments without a battle. She’s a natural talent, making herself useful and warming peopleꞌs hearts. Understands a thing or two about words and numbers. Cuts a dashing figure not only as a tennis player, but also keeps the group together as a trainer for physical exercise. Never seen without a book readily to hand, she has a permanent craving for chocolate.

That said, he also loves being out and about in the great wide world far from home.

Portrait Petra Weidmann

Petra Weidmann

A diploma engineer, she came to the agency via architecture. An all-rounder for PR and marketing, thanks to a whole lot of experience. Has a capacity to be enthusiastic about everyone and everything. Her professional hobby-horse is to take topics, understand them and then sell them. She is a systemic coach, a champion of structures and plans of all kinds, a project manager with a perennial soft spot – her fascination with the details, also in her photography, among other areas that interest her. Only likes to be drawn out of her naturally calm state by her children. A fan of the Baltic Sea and a voracious reader.

Portrait Stefanie Weigl

She is conscientious, with powers of assertiveness and the capacity for enthusiasm. In terms of her skills, she can be deployed on any assignment: from a government ministerꞌs visit, via social-media strategies, through to crisis-prevention. Operates as a systemic coach for customers and colleagues, with her big heart as a formidable asset in this. A cultivator of contacts. Loves to keep on learning. An eager hobby-cyclist undaunted by any wind or weather.

Portrait Sönke Wiese

Sönke Wiese

He grew up in Buxtehude, making him a genuine north German at large here in Bavaria. Yet he feels as much at home in the Bavarian mountains as he does amid Berlins buzz and action. Loves sailing off to new shores, in his professional life and his leisure. A journalist of more than 15 years standing, working in high-profile print, online and TV media, he became Head of Communications for a leading global management consultancy. He is passionate about copywriting and yet also always thinks in terms of visual images. His strengths: integrated, holistic thinking and skill at pitching his message to suit his listeners perfectly. When not busying himself with content, he is taken by the urge to travel the world.

Portrait Claudia Wild

Claudia Wild

A graduate in communication science and a dyed-in-the-wool native of Munich. Infuses order into any chaos that presents itself to her, while always maintaining a good overview with her artless, charming Bavarian warmth. Even in stormy times she projects calm and self-assurance, coming up with constructive solutions to problems. In her leisure her preference is for distant lands – the warmer the better. Meanwhile, she is undaunted in her efforts to gain control of her addiction to TV series!

Specialists

Whether you think of Leibniz or Humboldt, the ꞌuniversal man or woman of learningꞌ is a species that died out long ago. Not because people are becoming ꞌdumberꞌ - to put it bluntly - but because the sheer volume of knowledge is growing all the time. To be able to advise you effectively, what is needed is a broad base of knowledge. To be able to implement things well, the knowledge needs to reach more deeply into specialised disciplines.

Portrait Bea Eder

Bea Eder

Our Director of HR. Both professionally and privately, she is an ambassador of Positive Psychology. She brings a fervent desire to the task of structuring working conditions in such a way that people can truly blossom in their jobs and experience real meaning in what they do. With 20 years of professional personnel experience, she finds the suitable team members for consense. She gives her support to the team as it commits itself constantly to developing further. Her stock in trade is her radiant smile as she walks into the agency. In her leisure time she devotes her energies to the project of "living in beautiful surroundings". Also passionate about cultivating her mini-garden, she takes delight in savouring with her friends the Italian art of enjoying coffee.
