Get To Know Me Better
I am happy you are here. You are in the right place if you are part of the growing number of people who no longer want to participate in the "time for money" exchange, mindlessly spinning the hamster wheel, living a life without plan or according to the plan of others. It is my job to help you gain more clarity on your journey ahead. You will be able to take a bird’s eye perspective on your current situation and I will help you transition from being stuck towards the destination you’d like to reach, taking you ambitions, your creativity and your dreams into account.
Start your transition with my support and you will
- become fully aware that a successful career should allow you to take care of your wellbeing, relationships and ambitions
- map out your values and your vision for your best future
- unearth hidden dreams
- get clear about your future life direction, professionally and personally
- be able to set future career goals with intention and clarity
- discover a variety of options for making meaningful changes in your life
People I work with come from various countries and cultures. They are open minded and well traveled, have gained a good amount of life and work experience, are advanced in their careers and consider themselves successful in their area of expertise.
However, they typically feel something is missing in their lives. The missing parts mostly relate to those aspects of a career that are not immediately visible to an external observer, such as physical and mental wellbeing, having time for meaningful relations with family and friends, or being able to make full use of their creativity and strengths. My clients realize that living a rich life is not just based on status and income, but rather in the alignment of professional and private matters with their inner values. Once the true values are unearthed, my clients are able to making meaningful and sustainable changes in their lives.

About Anke Berning
Born and raised in Germany, I now live in Lucerne, one of the most beautiful areas in the world!
I have always been interested in foreign countries and languages. Following a commercial training I studied German Literature and Modern Japan in Düsseldorf and spent a year in Tokyo.
After my graduation I worked for the City of Sapporo for two years and then relocated to Brussels, coordinating an export promotion campaign to Japan.
From Belgium I moved to London, where I got a foothold in the finance sector. After yet another change of country, this time to Switzerland, I started to work for a small wealth management company in Zurich.
Having worked free-lance as an intercultural trainer and consultant since 2006, I got certified as a business- and life coach in 2014, and consequently split my working time between compliance work on one side and delivering intercultural trainings and coachings on the other side.
There is a common thread throughout my previous and current jobs: the intermediation between cultures, the discovery of new perspectives and helping people find direction in a globalized world.
