About me

I grew up in Northern Hungary in Eger and majored in Business Economics at the Corvinus University of Budapest. After participating in an international student exchange, I was given the opportunity to acquire a second degree in Business Administration at the University of Cologne, Germany.

Afterwards I moved to South Africa and worked as a business consultant for Ernst & Young Management Services. During this time, which was shortly after the Apartheid, I worked on a number of development projects and was a member of Nelson Mandela’s Presidential Project Team.

Following 2 years of successful work in South Africa I moved to Germany and founded my business klara denzin cross culture. During the early stages of the development of my business I primarily consulted German and Hungarian businesses in terms of commerce and language.
In 2007 I qualified as a teacher for German as a Foreign Language and graduated from a correspondence degree course of study.

After 5 years as a freelancing German teacher at the Goethe-Institute I opened up my own Office.

In addition to my work as a consultant, I am currently working as a lecturer for Intercultural Competence at the Heilbronn University.

As a language teacher and business consultant I consider recognition, appreciation and integration of diversity to be some of the most important values in my profession. My aim is to strengthen and to maintain the appreciation of diversity in the companies and institutions I work for. I truly believe that companies and organizations should create a working environment free of prejudice. To support these values, I take part regularly in various projects related to diversity management and in addition, I have signed the “Charta der Vielfalt” (Diversity Charter).
