You want to get

from A to B in life?

I take you there!

Your definition of success is my mission


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.

Well, what if your path is already clear and your destination well-defined— you just need a gentle nudge toward discovering that path and taking the first steps on the road to your personal success?


This is my job. I will enable you to take a bird’s eye perspective on your life.  I will help navigate you from “A,” your current position in life and career, with everything you like and dislike about it, towards “B,” your mission, the place you’d like to be in, what you want to achieve. I will help you see clearly WHERE you want to go, find out WHAT is so great about that vision, truly understand WHY you want to get there and, finally, help you come up with HOW you can begin on your new journey, including what luggage to bring along, which compass to hold… and what to leave behind.


Start the journey with my support and you will:

  • Become fully aware of your strengths, skills and talents
  • Map out your values and your vision for your best future
  • Unearth hidden dreams
  • Get clear about your future life direction - professionally and privately
  • Be able to set future career goals with intention and clarity
  • Discover a variety of options for making meaningful changes in your life


About My Clients

People I work with come from various countries and cultures. They are typically open and well travelled, have gained significant life experience, have advanced in their careers and are relatively satisfied in their successes.   However, they all typically feel something is missing in their lives, the "BUT..." They’ve become curious and self-reflective and in searching for this "But" they often realize that the true treasure is not to be found in the outside world, but rather in its alignment with their inner values. Once they discover this they look forward to making meaningful and REAL changes in their professions and lives.

About me

We have not met before? Welcome to my site! My name is Anke Berning. I originally come from Germany and now live in Lucerne, one of the world's most beautiful cities.

I have always been interested in foreign countries and languages. After a commercial training I studied German Literature and Modern Japan in Düsseldorf. For my third year of studies I moved to Tokyo where I shared accomodation with five Japanese students. After graduation I worked in Sapporo in the north of Japan for two years before relocating to Brussels, where I worked for an export promotion campaign to Japan. From Belgium I moved to London, working first for an internet startup company and then starting out in the finance sector. After some detours and another change of country, this time to Switzerland, I started to work for a wealth management company in Zurich  where I am still active today with a 50% pensum. The other time I deliver intercultural trainings and coachings, after having completed my trainings as a certified intercultural consultant and business- and life coach in 2006 and 2014. 

I quit my full time position in 2012 in order to expand my intercultural trainings business. It turned out that the combination of employment and freelancing gave me a satisfaction and sense of achievement that I had not anticipated. It also enabled me to discover the connecting element in my previous and current jobs: the intermediation between cultures, the discovery of new perspectives and providing direction in a globalized world.

With my two jobs I created an opportunity to align with my personal values: live life with intention, stay active (physically and mentally) and to be open for continuous learning and new experiences.
